I'm A Celebrity: Helen Flanagan faces an Ostrich but fails another Bushtucker Trial

All the latest news and gossip from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

Helen Flanagan doesn’t seem to be having much luck in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle. Our resident screaming flamingo has faced every Bushtucker trial so far and has threatened to quit if the public continue to vote for her. Shame she's blown another one then isn't it?

Nominated by the public to face Cruelty Towers, Helen appeared in fighting spirit and even told her fellow camp mates "I'm chilled. I'm gonna do it!"


One person who was anything but chilled was Eastenders Charlie Brooks who couldn't quite believe the pampering Helen received before the challenge. “Can you actually believe that Brian did her show laces up for her.  It all just kind of miraculously happened.  Life just revolves around her.”


“I think if she gets no stars her shoe laces are not being done up and that girl needs a short sharp shock.”

THE TRIAL:

Hidden inside Cruelty Towers were ten stars and each star was worth a meal for camp. Helen had ten minutes to explore five rooms each containing jungle critters. These included snakes, a crocodile, an ostrich spiders, offal, flies and even a collapsing ceiling.


Alarm bells started to ring the moment the hotel door opened. “Can I just get my head together. I need to decide if I want to do this or not.”


“I need a moment to decide, I need to get my head together.  I’m really scared. I am getting worked up. It just makes me want to go home. If they’re going to keep doing this to me every single day I want to go home. I just really want people to stop voting for me. I’m not happy at all. I don’t want to do it.”


Finally deciding to give the trial a go, Helen opened the door and met Olly the Ostrich. She did well to talk him down as he was butting and hissing but struggled to reach the required star. Ant McPartlin advised her to 'unscrew it' and as she did the lights went out and it was all over. "I'm a celebrity get me out of here!"


As soon as left she was kicking herself. “I didn’t realise it was going to go dark, that freaked me out.  Oh I wish I could have gone in there now, I feel really stupid.  I wish I could have gone back in there now.  Can I go back in?”


“I do not want to go back to camp.”

“I’ve got to make an impression and they are going to start getting annoyed. I’m annoyed with myself, I didn’t do the best I could do and that’s what irritates me.  I could have done better than I did.”


When she headed back, the camp mates all rallied around her and asked her about the challenge.  Charlie continued to ask how many stars she won but Helen ignored her.


David later commented in the Bush Telegraph, “Am I disappointed, yes, am I upset, no.  She said she tried her best and that’s all you can ask from our little Helen.”

But an unconvinced Charlie admitted that she was disappointed she only made it into one room and questioned the Corrie stars efforts.


Do you think Helen's time is up?

Should ITV give her a vote break?

Or should she just leave?

well the public will keep on voting for her, in order to make her quit, they did it with Appleton, Katie Price & Gillian McKeith, and they will do the same with her.

 

She's being paid THOUSANDS to go in there and have a jolly, she has to EARN it, and by continuosly ducking out of the Trials, she's offering us NOTHING, she's simply not earning her pay or our respect, she should go, in fact the Producers should just take her out, she's a waste of space and is no help to man or beast.

It is because of her pathetic behaviour that people keep voting her for the tasks. if she was to wise up then the public might go easy on her. However i believe the damage has been done.

I can't believe that this airhead left Corrie to be a WAG. If she had half as much in her head as she had in her bra she would be almost human.  What a waste of .............

She needs to get a grip!  She is useless!   Wouldn't like her to be responsible for my food.

Obviously living up to the show's title, but somehow manages not to get out of there.

Perhaps someone should redefine the term `celebrity'

She should chuck it and go home and let some other non celebs take to the trials. It's getting boring already the whole charade.

Don't know how she had the nerve to go back in the camp failing again without even trying, just as useless in real life as her acting is crap, get her out of there lets see the others on the trials.... she is too busy drawing attention to herself we aren't seeing enough of the others

Why did she bother going on the program, surely she knew what was going to be happening. or did she think it was a holiday camp?? I must admit I would not do the trials, but I would not have gone in the JUNGLE. Are the so hard up for money and fame??

Why are people stating the obvious?  You don't need a need psychology degree to know why people are keeping her in.

If she can't deal with trials then she must say "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" and leave the jungle, that is the way of the game.

what a shame that she is in there at all,keeping the public amused,a good plan for votes and more important,being kept in for our amusement,we watch with interest regardless of her pathetic cries of,"i'm a celebrity get me out of here" 10 seconds after the bell goes

I think things can only get worse for her she was an obvious choice it seems to provide comical moments

 

It is a jungle out there in reality which one is she really in
