Blackburn actress Helen Flanagan is set to appear on the upcoming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here all-star series.

The 32-year-old actress took part in I’m A Celebrity back in 2012 and is regarded by many as one of the most memorable contestants to have appeared on the show.

The former Westholme School pupil will be facing her fears once again as she has been confirmed in the I’m A Celebrity… South Africa line-up.

A new trailer of the ITV series, set to air on April 24, has been released.

In the trailer we can see Helen brave dizzying heights and appear to submerge herself in offal.

Helen, who finished in seventh place the first time around, said: “I am not saying I am going to go in and be a jungle warrior and be absolutely amazing because I will not.

“Yes, I will be scared but I will have a go and I will be a lot better than last time.”

To celebrate her return to the ITV show we have compiled a list of Helen’s most memorable moments from her appearance on the show back in 2012.

1. Getting voted to take part in seven bushtucker trials in a row


Helen, best known for playing Rosie Webster, in Coronation Street had a hard time in the jungle and was voted to do seven bushtucker trials in a row.

The actress only lasted seconds in the Bug Burial challenge and also lost out to Nadine Dorries in the eating challenge, where she was asked to tuck into an ostrich anus and other jungle dishes.


2. Refusing to do a trial

Helen went down in I’m a Celebrity history for refusing to attempt a trial called Rodent Run.

As soon as the klaxon sounded for the trial to start Helen shouted out: "I'm really freaking out please let me out… I am getting really worked up.”

3. Forgetting waterproof mascara

On Helen’s very first challenge she made a beauty faux pas and forgot to wear waterproof mascara.

Helen had to walk across a creek balancing on wire but couldn’t hold back tears.

She made headlines after images of mascara was smeared down her face surfaced.

4. Disqualification from trial

In an underwater trail called ‘Come Dive with Me' Helen was disqualified for failing to do the task as instructed.

Helen and Charlie Brooks were asked to dive underwater and find stars that were hidden beneath domes.

The stars  had to be collected by only using their teeth.

Helen secured four stars but forgot to use her teeth to grab them

Presenters Ant and Dec told her that because she had broken the rules and didn't use her mouth to win the four stars, they did not count.

Helen said: "I think it's because I panic so much, I forget using my teeth. I did my best."


5. Fake tan disaster

Helen made headlines after using her luxury item, fake tan, in the jungle.

As the day progressed the tan got darker and darker.

Fellow campmate, Charlie, said: “It does look a little bit ridiculous. She looked like an Oompah-Loompa.”

Helen later admitted to having a spray tan and blow dry every two days.
