Helena Bonham Carter looked just about as excited for the Prime Minister's 8PM announcement as the rest of the UK on Monday, as she was snapped out and about in London. 

The actress, 54, looked tense as she spoke on her phone, while wrapped up against the winter chill.

The star wore a matching red tartan jacket and scarf combo over black slacks and combat boots.

She whipped her mane up atop her head, tied loosely with a bow, and appeared to be make-up free for the jaunt.

She also carried what looked to be a script under one arm. 

Helena was seen nipping into a health food shop, amid London's Tier 4 status, which state only essential shopping is allowed.

Helena is no doubt anticipating the stricter COVID-19 measures set to be announced on Monday evening by Boris Johnson.

Helena has recently wrapped up her tenure as Princess Margaret on Netflix's The Crown.

And last week, on another outing, she bumped into co-star Emma Corrin, who played Princess Diana on the hit series.

They seemed thrilled to cross paths on the chilly London street, with Emma, 25, and her mystery man, just been seen looking at wedding dresses in a store window.

Helena was with her boyfriend Rye Dag Holmboe.

The quartet, who were out walking their respective dogs, chatted animatedly, while observing social-distancing rules.

Their encounter came after Emma had been admiring gowns made by Scottish designer Joyce Young.

The designs, which start at about £1,500, are sleeker than the gown she wore to recreate Diana’s ivory taffeta dress with a 25ft train on The Crown.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
