I'm A Celebrity 2012: Helen Flanagan's boyfriend brands her an idiot!

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Helen Flanagan

Helen Flanagan's boyfriend has branded the I'm A Celebrity 2012 star an idiot after she decided to take fake tan into the jungle.

As always this year, contestants were allowed to take one luxury item into camp, with Corrie star Helen opting for a bottle of fake tan.

However Helen revealed that her footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair was unimpressed.

"I went out for a family meal before I left the UK and they said I’d look absolutely ridiculous if I take this into the jungle," she told the Daily Record before going into the jungle. “My boyfriend told me I’d look like a total idiot – but I don’t care. I’m ­taking in some fake tan.”

Helen has been showing off her body at every opportunity she she can already, and explained she needed her fake tan!

She explained: “The reason why I’m taking fake tan into the jungle is because I’m naturally really, really fair.

“My dad has blond hair and blue eyes, so it’s quite dangerous for me to go into the sun. I’ve never had a natural sun tan because I’m so fair. I know it sounds quite vain and I don’t mean it to be like that but it’s something that will cheer me up.”
