Bristow and Baker in eviction trial

Eric Bristow faces a challenge to stay in the I'm A Celebrity jungle

Darts champion Eric Bristow and former Doctor Who star Colin Baker will go head to head in a bushtucker trial to decide who will be the next contestant to leave I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Both celebrities will face each other in a battle for survival after finishing in the bottom two following the public vote on Saturday night's edition of the ITV1 series.

Bristow, 55, and 69-year-old Baker will compete in a challenge called The Panic Rooms on Sunday's show.

Tempers flared earlier when five-time world champion Bristow was involved in a spat with actress Helen Flanagan. He chuckled when the former Coronation Street star admitted she was unable able to blow dry her own hair and told her that she was not very independent.

Flanagan, 22, replied: "Honestly, mind your own business, you are such a strange creature, you are such a strange specimen, honestly, such a strange cretin, honestly, bore off."

Later she said: "We're friends really aren't we Eric?" But Bristow responded: "We're just companions in the jungle, we're not friends."

Flanagan, who hit the headlines for her repeated failed attempts at the show's bushtucker trials, was the talk of the jungle again after she applied too much fake tan to her face.

EastEnders actress Charlie Brooks said Flanagan looked "ridiculous" and compared her to an "oompa loompa".

Earlier, Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor won meals for all his campmates after successfully completing a bushtucker trial called Drown and Out.

Bristow or Baker will follow Tory MP Nadine Dorries, 1980s pop star Limahl and actress Linda Robson as the fourth person to be evicted from the jungle. Comedian Brian Conley was forced to quit the show on medical grounds.
