I'm A Celebrity 2012: Helen Flanagan favourite for tonight's live trial

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Helen Flanagan

Helen Flanagan is unsurprisingly the favourite to be taking part in tonight's I'm A Celebrity 2012 trial.

It's sure to frustrate hosts Ant and Dec, who were clearly annoyed last night when Helen gave up on the latest trial, Rodent Run.

“She came down with the attitude that she wasn’t going to do it,” Ant said. “Everybody wants to see the trials so why are people still voting for her? ”

Dec said: “We tried to help her, the hamster wheel was two relatively easy stars!”

Tonight will see the first live trial of the series, and Ant begged viewers not to vote for Helen.

He said: “I hope she won’t get voted! It’s my birthday, please, spare a little thought and pick someone else tonight.”

Dec added: “But if she does get it, the other campmates wil; come down with her and watch.

“You never know what’s going to happen. It tends to be when other people are there she tries a bit harder.”

Meanwhile, Charlie Brooks is the new favourite in one of the closest editions of I'm a Celebrity ever according to Ladbrokes.

The actress better known as Janine Butcher has emerged as the clear 7/2 favourite over the weekend leaving the next four contestants all tied at 11/2. The bookies then can't split Brian, David, Rosemary and Eric leaving Colin as the only other celebrity with single figure odds (8/1).

Helen Flanagan also drifts out to 16/1 despite an early bikini-inspired gamble which saw her odds collapse to 4/1 last week.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "We can't split the front runners. It's looking like one of the closest editions in years with Charlie the new flavour."

He added: "Helen was all the rage in the early stages but the novelty is clearly starting to wear off."
