Fans of Helen Mirren are most familiar with seeing her starring on the big screen or posing on the red carpet.

But the actress, 74, has given a sneak peek into her home life, and revealed the two unlikely household items she has been loving during the coronavirus lockdown.

In a post on Instagram to her 865,000 followers, she shared a picture of a bird feeder hanging from a branch in her garden.

Her recommendations each received more than 10,000 “likes,” with many of her followers agreeing with her.

In relation to the bird feeder, one person wrote: “Bird watching is mindfulness...serotonin release.”

Another commented: “I bought two. Would sit for hours and just watch the birds and the wind blowing the trees.”

Referring to the vacuum cleaner, a third shared: “Best purchase I ever made.”

And a fourth added: “My favourite tool in my house!”

The actress’s model of choice appears to be the Dyson V8 Animal, which rings in at $559 CAD. Although pricey, it has more than 3,000 reviews backing it up.

It cleans up mess across a range of surfaces for up to 40 minutes, before it will need to be recharged.

However, if you’re looking for a similar stick vacuum that doesn’t break the bank, our editor recently purchased this $90 iwoly stick vacuum from Amazon — which she says is a fantastic dupe for pricier brands.
