A FEMALE plumber has shared what she wears when she's working – and why she looks good whether she's on the job or going out.
Helena Szmalec, who goes by the name pink_plumbing_hjs on TikTok, has shared a number of videos unveiling both her outfits at work and in her free time.
According to Direct Line for Business, women account for just two percent of all plumbers in the UK.
But Helena, 28, who lives in Birmingham, wants to shed light on what she does, and what it's like working in such a male-dominated industry.
Recently, she shared a video of herself working in short black shorts with a tool belt and a pink sports bra-type top.
She captioned the video: "Don't care what I look like today. I'm hot."
