Speaking about her exit with hosts Ant and Dec, she said: "I feel emotional because I've become close to everyone in camp, they're all really good friends."
The discussion quickly turned to her fears and lack of success in the Bushtucker Trials. "When I first came on the show, I was like, 'I'm really strong minded, I'll be able to do all the trials'," she said. "I didn't think they'd be as hard as they were.
"My biggest fear is height. The whole bridge thing, oh my God it was the worst thing ever. I think from then on it knocked my confidence.
"When you are in the jungle it is your life. Even though some of the trials were quite bad, I'm proud of myself because I felt like I did my best."
Helen denied that she a gameplan to lose several trials before reversing her success rate. "Oh my god no, I'd rather save myself the humiliation!
"I've been cringing about how bad I'm gonna look, thinking 'I'll never be able live this down!' Honestly, if I could be a girl that would smash it every time, I would."
She also addressed Eric's often bitchy comments towards her, saying: "You know, the past two days me and Eric have got on really really well. He's just very very direct, which can come across is rude, and I'm just not like that."
Helen finished by saying that she wants David Haye to be crowned the winner.
The sixth elimination takes place in tomorrow's episode, at 8.30pm on ITV1.
