MP promises to 'Strictly' do her best for constituency
When she was elected in May, Helen took over from the retiring MP Ann Widdecombe, who had held the seat for 23 years.
Not only was Ann Widdecombe a well known MP she was also a former government minister and Shadow Health Secretary. Of course since standing down she's reached new heights of fame - as the unlikely star of this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' competition.
So, there's no doubt that she has big shoes to fill. But Helen Grant is clear that she doesn't want to replace Ann but be her own kind of MP - doing her best for the constituency.
There's no sign of sequins or high heels when I catch up with Helen - instead she's being kitted out in army combats and boots. She's being fitted for her uniform for the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme, which aims to give MPs first-hand experience of the armed forces.
Her son is a Royal Marine recruit and she believes it's crucial to support the armed forces and their families.
Uniform ordered, it's then a quick dash across London to make it back to the Commons in time for Prime Minister's Questions.
She heads straight from there to the City where she has a meeting with Amanda Mackenzie, Chief Marketing Officer at the insurance company Aviva and the marketing director Jan Gooding.
They're two women who've reached the top in their profession and Helen Grant hopes she can work with them to help encourage other women break down barriers in business.Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club.
In her constituency on Friday it's another full itinerary. In the morning she visits a 91-year-old constituent, Dora, at her home in Maidstone. She's concerned about possible changes to her free bus pass.
Then it's on to Great Sheephurst Farm in Marden where they've just won 'best in show' for their apples at the National Fruit Show harvest.
But for Helen one of the highlights of the weekend in the Grant household at the moment is the weekly appearance of her predecessor Ann Widdecombe on 'Strictly Come Dancing'. She believes Ann can go all the way and says the whole family is voting for her.
Helen Grant says she knows Ann is a tough act to follow but says she tells her constituents: "There is only one Ann and I will have to be their Helen and that's what I am endeavouring to do through hard work. And hopefully, I will win their respect and trust."
