Im A Celebrity 2012: Eric Bristow's son hits out at Helen Flanagan

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Helen Flanagan

Eric Bristow's son has been defending his dad, and hitting out at I'm A Celeb star Helen Flanagan!

Speaking to The Sun, James Bristow claimed that Corrie beauty Helen was playing a game.

He said: “Helen is annoying and is clearly playing a game to get viewers onside.

"I don’t think anyone was fooled by her over-dramatic reactions to the trials.

“The aim was clearly to pretend she couldn’t deal with any of this stuff and then turn it around, winning people over. But I’d rather watch someone who is genuine – like my dad.”

Despite having clashed numerous times in the jungle, it seems as more celebs are given the axe, Eric and Helen have become closer.

Helen said last night: “I’m close to so many people… Ashley, Hugo, Rosemary, David… and even Eric now!”

Meanwhile eliminated Colin Baker backed Eric to win the series in this weekend's final.

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.”
