Helen Noble (born in Wigan) is a British actress best known for her role as Abby Davies in the British soap opera Hollyoaks from 2000 to 2004, with a brief return in 2005. Helen attended Wigan's Willpower Youth Theatre as a teenager and it was through this and their links with Intercity Casting that she got her first audition to play Abby in "Holloaks".

After leaving Hollyoaks, she appeared in pantomime[1] and in 2004 appeared on a celebrity version of The Weakest Link dressed as her pantomime character from Dick Whittington.

In the 2005–06 pantomime season she appeared as Princess Apricot Crumble in Jack & the Beanstalk at Theatre Royal, Plymouth.[2]

In February 2006, she fronted a bid to promote the work of the Halton Drug Action Team and its partner agencies in Widnes and Runcorn by living 'homeless' in the Halton YMCA.[3]

In April 2006, she appeared alongside Sara Crowe in The Safari Party at Richmond Theatre[4] and toured the UK with the same play.[5]

In September 2007, it was announced that, along with her former Hollyoaks colleague Sarah Jayne Dunn and the theatre actor Graham Tudor, she would be teaching students at a new acting school in Liverpool.[6] named TrEAD: TRaining in Expressive Arts and Drama.

On 6 January 2010, Noble appeared on BBC2's Ready Steady Cook with Sarah Jayne Dunn.
