She has already been locked in a coffin (briefly) with bugs and forced to eat gruesome culinary ‘treats’, but Helen Flanagan has finally had enough after she faced up to her third Bushtucker Trial.
The 22-year-old former Coronation Street star will be seen attempting yet another trial on Thursday night’s episode of the ITV series.
Dubbed Cruelty Towers, the task sees Helen have to work her way through the hotel’s rooms collecting up to ten stars – with each star representing a meal for the camp.

Unsurprisingly, she is not alone in the hotel.
Joining her in the room was a host of jungle critters including an ostrich, spiders, snakes and a crocodile.

Putting on a brave face: Helen tried to be defiant before facing her third trial in a row. But she soon started getting upset as the task approached
Some parts of the task will see her plunged into darkness, with Helen forced to use a torch to navigate through the treacherous rooms.
Desperate to make a good impression after coming up empty handed from the first two tasks, she appeared to be in a fighting spirit before the task.
She told hosts Ant and Dec: ‘I want to make a good impression with everybody else. I’m actually looking forward to it. I really want to do this.’

However, her defiance seemed to waver, saying: ‘I need a few minutes. I’m scared. It just makes me want to go home. If they’re going to keep do this to me every single day I want to go home. I just really want people to stop voting for me. I’m not happy at all. I don’t want to do it.’
Befriending an Ostrich in the first room, which she soon named Olly, the actress tried to put on a brave face as she plucked up courage for the task.
Viewers will have to tune in at 8.30pm on ITV1 to see how she fares.
However, Laura Whitmore, who hosts the Get Me Out Of Here Now! reaction show, has branded Helen’s decision to quit the first trial within seconds as ‘annoying’.

According to The Sun, she is quoted as saying: ‘Ant and Dec have lost patience with her and I think most of the crew hate her since she bailed out of the Bug Burial Trial. Months of preparation, health and safety checks goes into those trials. So to do all that and have Helen walk away after just ten seconds is annoying.’
In other jungle goings, the merging of the two camps has unsurprisingly seen some moaning about other contestants.

Hugo Taylor opened up to David Haye about Nadine Dorres taking over cooking duties earlier this week, moaning: ‘She was cooking what we had. She was
f*****g it up in the most major way just destroying these birds. She
won the trial so it’s fine she can cook the way she wants. She just went
‘no’ and snapped at me. Hate being shouted at by anybody, especially
when I’m tired and hungry. I literally had to bite my lips so hard.
Now any words that come out of her mouth are infuriating.’
However, Haye later told the Bush Telegraph: ‘I’ll take it on board what Hugo said abut
Nadine but I won’t judge her on that, that’s his personal beef with her
‘He may have said or done something that rubbed her up the wrong way.
Only thing I can do is give her the benefit of the doubt. I’ll form my
own opinions on the experiences I have with each individual.’
