Helena Bonham-Carter, oddball actress and part-time scarecrow has finally taken the plunge... straight into her avocado corner suite.
After years of "Will she? Won't she?" Helena has dusted off her taps and taken her first bath in years!
It had been calculated that Bonham Carter had evaded water for nearly 28 years. There is a story going round that she refused one Oscar winning role because of a bath scene, many at the time thought it was bad judgement or she was possibly, a little shy. We now know that it was the simple fact that she is just a common "Soap Dodger"
Helena can be still be pleased though, she has smashed Bob Geldof's record of being unwashed by a full three years, four months and three days. Geldof 60, sent a message of congratulations and a 3-pack of Imperial Leather.
"Well done to ya Helena, top o' the morning. Welcome to da clean side."
Even more surprising is that the actress actually went through some personal grooming as well. A woman was seen leaving Miss Bonham Carter's home yesterday with two black bin liners. She was later identified as a make up artist/beautician from a local salon. The bin bags were believed to contain the unwanted hair removed in an 18 hour waxing marathon.
