I'm A Celebrity 2012: Eric Bristow and Helen Flangan clash in camp

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Eric Bristow

Helen Flanagan became the latest celebrity to be upset by Eric Bristow on I'm A Celebrity 2012 tonight.

It follows Eric's clashes with Hugo Taylor and Rosemary Shrager in the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here camp.

Eric delivered a backhanded compliment to Helen saying: “You are still as daft as a brush but you look better.”

Curious as to whether he was joking or not, Helen said: “Why do you think that? Give me an example.” Eric continued: “You are daft, daft as a brush. Just because you are.”

In the Bush Telegraph, Helen said: “Eric is really annoying, constant banter, it’s driving me up the wall, literally!”

Defending himself Eric told Ashley: “I’m a truth teller, just telling the truth.”

Ashley surmised: “There’s no filter, when he thinks something he just goes and says it, he doesn’t process it before he delivers the thought, he just says whatever is on his mind.

“Helen is the baby of the group and she needs the most caretaking and Eric uses that in a way to poke at her and push her buttons and it’s been getting to her a little more than usual.”

Helen spoke to Linda about Eric: “He’s doing my head in, I’m just finding it hard.” Linda said she’d speak to him but he was unrepentant. “She’s (Helen) alright in small doses but I have had 11 days of her now and I’ve zero tolerance.” Linda replied that the experience in the jungle has made Helen look at things differently and she’d grown up a bit but Eric said: “I don’t think so I think she’ll just go back into the same old world.”
