Im A Celebrity 2012: Helen Flanagan fails Rodent Run trial

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Helen Flanagan

Helen Flanagan failed her latest Bushtucker trial on I'm A Celebrity 2012 tonight, winning zero meals for camp.

When Helen arrived at her fifth Bush Tucker Trial she told Ant and Dec, “I’m not feeling this. I have given it 100%. What more can I give. I will have a look (at the trial), obviously I really want to give everything a go and I’m not a quitter at all, but if I think absolutely no I’ve had enough, then I’ve had enough.”

Making reference to yesterday’s trial, in which her four stars were not counted as she had broken the rules, Ant quipped, “now listen carefully on these rules, because I know you’re not very good with rules.”

Standing before her was a giant jungle hamster cage, which was split into five areas, two crawl- through tunnels, a house, a bathing tub and a hamster’s wheel. Each area contained stars – twelve in total. She would be joined by a host of jungle critters, including, rats, meal worms, green ants and spiders. The first area was the hamster’s wheel. Helen had to run on the wheel, this would lower stars from the ceiling. If she stopped running the stars would wind back up. She had two minutes to collect the two stars.

Helen asked for a few minutes to decide if she would like to do the trial. She confessed to Ant and Dec, “Hand on my heart, I always give 100%. I kind of think what more can I give. I’m just feeling annoyed. I really have had enough of the trials. I will have a look to see what’s on offer. I really want to give everything a go and I’m not a quitter at all but if I kind of think absolutely no I’ve had enough, then I’ve had enough.”

Offering words of encouragement Ant said, “think of it this way, the first trial you’ve done you lasted ten seconds, not great, then you got better and yesterday you got four stars. You forgot the rules and didn’t use your mouth but you still got four stars. So you’re going on a journey and you’re getting better.”

Helen agreed to attempt the trial and headed into the hamster’s wheel.

Dec then said, “You’ll be fine, we’ll talk you through it. You can do this Helen.”

But when she entered the wheel Helen then shouted, “what the hell are you going to chuck on me? Oh my God. I don’t think I want to do this.”

Ant and Dec continued to encourage Helen with words of support but the actress continued, “I’m serious I don’t think I want to do this. I’m getting a bit scared I don’t think I can do this. I’m serious, I’m really sorry to let everyone down. I just don’t want to do it.”

Dec suggested, “The first one is just meal worms. You have a real opportunity to get two stars here. Its pretty easy this one.”

Ant added, “they don’t bite, they might smell a bit but that’s it.”

They continued their words of support, Dec said, “we just want you to go as far as you possibly can and I know that you can do this. There are two stars on offer. For what you’ve been through already, what you did yesterday, this is relatively simple.”

The host suggested she “give it a go” and that it was “two easy stars” for her to get for her camp.

She agreed to attempt the wheel but as soon as the klaxon was fired indicating that trial would start, Helen shouted, “I really don’t want to this, please let me out, I’m freaking out. I’m really sorry I want to get out now. Its really panicking me and I’m really, really sorry. I don’t want to let anyone down its just really freaking me out.”

Helen continued, “I don’t want to let anyone down, the whole thing is completely freaking me out because it’s my fifth trial. I know its only meal worms, its really working me up and I don’t want to put myself through it and get absolutely terrified. Honestly I’m really scared.”

Ant then explained, “We’re not here to force you to do anything, we’re just here to explain to you that it was do-able that there were stars on offer and you could have given it a go.”

When asked how she thought her fellow camp mates will react, Helen replied, “I’m just going to be honest and tell them that I haven’t been able to get my head around it. I don’t want to upset anyone or let anyone down but this is how I feel and I don’t want to do it. I’ve absolutely had enough of trials.”

Helen confirmed, “I just don’t want to do the trial. If I am down here this time tomorrow, I don’t want to let the audience down but I feel if there is something I don’t want to do then I’m going to have to turn it down.”

She then uttered the immortal line “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!”
