Helen was born in Ossett, Yorkshire and is an English actress.  Her most enduring role has been her portrayal of Gail Platt on ITV’s soap opera Coronation Street. Since arriving on the Street as Gail Potter in 1974, Gail has married five times and has had three children.

Helen joined Born Free as a Patron at our 15th Anniversary celebration in 1999 and has been actively working on campaigns ever since.  She frequently appears on television fronting campaigns and involves herself on many other levels.  Helen joined Born Free at the House of Commons speaking about the proposed changes to the Animal Welfare Bill and in particular, Anne, the UK’s last remaining circus elephant, and has been involved with a number of rescues and relocations.

Much travelled, Helen has supported Born Free campaigns to end ivory poaching in Africa, assist the plight of orphan elephants in Asia and campaign against the slum zoos of Europe. She says: “We sometimes relate more easily to the plight of individual animals, which helps us understand the needs of the species as a whole.  I love the fact that Born Free considers everything important.”
