I'm A Celebrity: Helen Flanagan flounders in third Bush Tucker trial - and is elected to endure fourth


It is fourth time unlucky for Helen Flanagan after she was picked to do tonight's bushtucker trial in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

The former Coronation Street star will be joined by soap rival Charlie Brooks, who plays Janine in EastEnders, for the test on the hit show.

Viewers watched last night as Flanagan failed her third trial after only a few minutes.

She had to walk through a jungle hotel - called Cruelty Towers - filled with different animals and creepy-crawlies and win stars by unscrewing light bulbs in each room.

She managed to unscrew the first bulb but panicked and quit the challenge as soon as the lights went out.

But she was soon regretting the decision, which meant she failed to win any food for the camp, telling hosts Ant and Dec she usually sleeps with the light on at home.

She said: "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?"

Faced with the Cruelty Towers challenge, Flanagan said: "It just makes me want to go home. If they're going to do this to me every single day I want to go home."

Boxer David Haye told the Bush Telegraph: "Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I upset? No, I can survive."

Eighties pop star Limahl and TV chef Rosemary Shrager became the latest names to join the other contestants in the jungle last night.

Limahl also confessed he was afraid of the dark, and revealed that he sleeps with a night light at home.
