Helen Flanagan redeemed herself after yet another botched bushtucker trial with a dance routine that won her a night in the pub in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.
The former Coronation Street actress bottled her fifth trial of the ITV series so far when she refused to run on a giant hamster's wheel infested with mealworms.
As soon as the klaxon sounded she shouted: "I really don't want to do this, please let me out, I'm freaking out. I'm really sorry, I want to get out now. It's really panicking me and I'm really, really sorry. I don't want to let anyone down, it's just really freaking me out.
"The whole thing is completely freaking me out because it's my fifth trial. I know it's only mealworms, it's really working me up and I don't want to put myself through it and get absolutely terrified. Honestly, I'm really scared."
After quitting she then said she had "absolutely had enough of trials".
Her decision infuriated the other celebrities on the show, with Eric Bristow demanding to know why she had gone on the show if she could not handle trials.
The darts player said: "I don't know why you're in here if you don't like insects and bugs and animals and things like that and you come into a jungle. What did you think you were going to do in here, drink milkshakes?"
But Flanagan later redeemed herself by winning a night in the "Jungle Arms" - the show's very own pub. As Made In Chelsea's Hugo Taylor performed poetry, Flanagan acted out the words in a bright pink tutu in a variety show the contestants were asked to put on in pairs.
The performance prompted one of the judges, chef Rosemary Shrager, to say: "Helen you got my heart because to be honest you won this competition."
Flanagan then exclaimed "I won something" before spending the rest of the night partying in the pub.
