I'm A Celebrity 2012: Helen Flanagan given sleeping pills to calm down

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Helen Flanagan

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star Helen Flanagan has been given sleeping pills to keep her calm, it's been revealed.

Axed celeb Limahl, who was eliminated from the show last week, claimed that Helen is "in crisis" in the jungle.

Speaking to the Daily Star after his exit, Limahl revealed: "One night she whispered that she was given sleeping tablets as she was that stressed out. She is in crisis.”

The singer explained that the Corrie beauty has been smoking non stop and not eating a lot of the food provided by bosses.

He told the newspaper today: “Poor Helen told me she was cracking up in there as she is sick of it all.

“First the trials then the filth, the chores, the washing, the mess, the boredom and the creepy-crawlies.

“I got the impression she was illequipped to cope with the experience.”

The singer continued: "We have all been starving in there and she is turning down food. She says she can’t eat beans.

“The sad thing is she is more interested in cigarettes.

“I find it so distressing that she chainsmokes and does not eat properly.”

A spokesperson for ITV declined to comment on Limahl's claims.
