I'm A Celebrity 2012: Colin Baker backs Eric Bristow to win

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Eric Bristow

I'm A Celebrity's Colin Baker has backed Eric Bristow to win the show.

Colin was booted out of the show in tonight's latest I'm A Celebrity 2012 results after losing to Eric Bristow in the elimination trial.

Speaking after his exit, Colin backed Eric to go on to win the show, despite his rather outspoken attitude in camp.

The former Doctor Who actor said: “I adore him. He’s my big mate in there. In the early days when I was struggling physically he was the one who helped and encouraged me.”

Defending the darts champ after his various unsavoury comments in camp to the other celebs, Colin said: “It’s his kind of way of talking to people. He takes the mick, that’s what he does, that’s the persona. He really is a completely happy camper.

“We all have our moments. We’re starving, we’re tired, we don’t know what time it is. It adds up to frustration. A dozen people who’ve never met and suddenly they’ve gotta put up with each other. It’s brilliant the way it’s evolved.”

But Colin reckoned it was Helen who had made the biggest journey of the group.

He said: "She’s turned from being someone who doesn’t know left from right to someone who’s really on the ball. She’s made the biggest journey of all of us."
