Ex-Corrie star Helen Flanagan voted for every Bushtucker Trial
4:01pm Friday 16th November 2012 in Blackburn
FORMER Westholme pupil and Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan has been called ‘the most hated’ I’m A Celebrity jungle contestant ever.
The 22-year-old has found her first few days on the ITV reality show tough, and she has blundered her way through a series of Bushtucker Trials.
Show presenters Ant and Dec even criticised her on TV for her efforts so far.
Helen has been chosen by viewers to take part in every task so far.
The actress only lasted seconds in the Bug Burial challenge and also lost out to Nadine Dorries in the eating challenge.
However, she did do better in her second trial and managed to eat three items, including a fermented duck egg, lamb’s testicle and an ostrich anus.
During the spin-off show Get Me Out Of Here Now!: Declan Donnelly said: “It’s annoying when they don’t attempt the trial. The fact that Helen only lasted ten seconds was a poor show.”
Ant McPartlin said: “You’ve just got top put up with it and do it — and then the public tend to say, ‘OK, they gave it a go. We won’t vote for them anymore’.”
Get Me Out Of Here Now! presenter and former winner Joe Swash added: “Why has Helen flown all across the world not to do the trials?
“They should get a cow prod or something. It’s a joke.”
Her antics have not only left the tired and hungry celebs fuming — show bosses are also angry at another waste of an elaborate trial.
And sources on the show say Helen is thinking about quitting if she keeps being picked to do Bushtucker Trials.
