Backlash of the bikini: I'm A Celeb campmates divided over 'hysterical' Helen Flanagan... as blonde threatens to leave show after 48 HOURS

She is afraid of everything and even admitted she can't do her own hair.

And the tide could be starting to turn against Helen Flanagan on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here after she lasted a record four seconds on her first trial.

It all started so well with campmates warming to the 22-year-old and her ditzy ways, even chuckling after her hysterical screams about everything and refusal to use the toilet.

But EastEnders star Charlie Brooks, 31, seemed less than impressed with her trial failure, saying: 'When she said she lasted 10 seconds, I was a bit like - that is a bit pathetic.'

Although to her face Charlie told her: 'You did your best' and predicted that Helen might be chosen again, adding 'If you come back with no stars tomorrow, we’ll kick your a*se.'

After the trial a weeping Helen whispered to rival Nadine Dorries that she wanted to go home as she didn't think she was cut out for the jungle, the Tory MP simply replied: 'So go home then.'

There are no flies on Helen though as she admitted later crying was making her look weak to viewers, but she just couldn't help herself.

In the Bush Telegraph she confessed: 'I’m really struggling.  I’ve even been thinking of going because I just don’t know if I can hack it.'

But other teammates seem to have grown to love the ditzy actress, who is becoming well-known for her odd tales.

She told teammates how she once stayed at a hotel and thought that she’d found a man under her bed – only to discover that she’d seen her own reflection in a mirror.

Then Helen told a tall tale about a hotel stay where she spotted a robe that £100 pounds to wear  - not realising that she would only be charged if she bought it.

And she revealed that she spent £400 pounds a month on having her hair done.  

'I kiss the magic card and hope' she revealed when her campmates quizzed her about the cost.

She later said that she would try and 'make up for my patheticness with my boobs'.

And readying herself for her trial, she put on a bikini. 'I’ll see how I feel. I might be. Do you think I’ll look stupid. Yes, it probably does a bit. I’ll put some more clothes on' she deliberated with Linda and Charlie.
