I'm A Celebrity 2012: Eric Bristow accused of bullying Helen Flanagan

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Eric Bristow

I'm A Celebrity 2012 hopeful Eric Bristow has been accused of bullying Helen Flanagan in the jungle.

Darts player Eric has been winding up all of the campmates, but his jibes about Helen's spots really seemed to upset the Corrie actress.

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, Helen admitted that Eric's comments had made her more self conscious.

“I’m really sensitive about my skin,” she said. “I feel very conscious because I haven’t got any make-up.”

Rosemary Shrager has also been on the end of Eric's insults, telling her fellow campers: "“It’s not like I don’t get on with Eric, I do, but he does have a thing about me. I haven’t fathomed out if it’s my posh accent.

“It makes him feel important insulting me. Eric’s humour comes from making fun of other people, that’s the problem.

“So in fact the only person looking the fool is Eric.”

A source told the Daily Star newspaper today: “We certainly do not condone bullying and if there was a complaint we would speak to the person concerned.”

A spokesperson for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here revealed to the newspaper that Helen hadn't officiailly complained about Eric to the show's team.

They added: “We monitor the camp 24 hours a day and speak to anyone as and when appropriate.”
