Flanagan flops again in jungle

Helen Flanagan flopped again after fouling up her fourth bushtucker trial in I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here.

The actress, who starred for years in Coronation Street, teamed up with EastEnders star Charlie Brooks for the challenge which saw the pair asked to dive under water and pick up stars with their teeth while trying to ignore water spiders, eels and lizards.

Charlie managed to get three stars but when it was Helen's turn she ignored hosts Ant and Dec's instructions and picked up four stars with her hands, which meant they did not count.

Explaining herself to the Geordie duo, she said: "I think its because I panic so much, I forget using my teeth. I did my best."

But her excuses cut no ice with Charlie, who back at the camp, away from Helen said: "Just the silliness of it all just frustrates me. It's like 'you really need to get a grip sometimes'."

She confessed to the Bush Telegraph: "When you feel you have to walk on egg shells because you might say something that's going to make somebody cry, it becomes a little bit intolerable to live with all the time. I find myself losing my patience."

There was also tension between Brian Conley and David Haye after the boxer sparked a row when he flicked two burning logs on to the forest floor.

A furious Brian ended up in tears before he was comforted by Colin Baker.

An apologetic David said: "So maybe I've got to be a bit more sensitive, a bit more careful about what I say around him And then try to pick up his spirit somehow and not do anything that unsettles him and upsets him."
