I'm A Celebrity 2012: Eric Bristow offends Helen Flanagan with skin remark

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Eric BristowA grouchy Eric Bristow ruffled a few feathers in the I'm A Celebrity jungle yesterday, offending Helen Flanagan with an insult about her diet.

The five-time darts champion was in a glum mood all day after losing the Bed Bugs immunity task, and was quick to take it out on his fellow campmates.

[tag]Limahl[/tag] was the first to feel his wrath after spending a litttle too much time with the wash bucket. Upon the Kajagoogoo frontman's return to camp, Eric barked: "Here comes the bucket man... It hasn’t got your name on it."

But while Limahl brushed the remark off, former Coronation Street actress Helen - known for her beauty regime - proved more sensitive.

Later on, as she told how she likes to melt ice lollies and drink them, Helen snapped: "You’ve got a fantastic diet when you’re at home. Is that before the chocolate or after the chocolate?

"That’s what done your skin, all that sh*t you’re eating."

After [tag]David Haye[/tag] joined in with Eric's teasing, an upset Helen retreated to the Bush Telegraph to complain.

"I’m finding it a little bit hard in camp. Sometimes the boys... they’re lovely, they would never mean to, and I know they love me, but boys don’t have as much sensitivity as girls," she commented.

"I love everyone in camp but I’m really sensitive about skin. I know it sounds really stupid I can’t believe I’m crying, it just gets to me because I feel conscious enough because I haven’t got any makeup."
