Flanagan shocks with trial success
Dumbfounded, flabbergasted and completely in shock - that is how the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! stars felt when Helen Flanagan finally completed a bushtucker trial.
After five failed attempts, the former Coronation Street actress returned to the camp triumphant after succeeding in the Deadly Delivery trial, guaranteeing food for the hungry campers.
Just hours after family and friends expressed concerns about how the actress was coping with her stint in the jungle, having been repeatedly voted by the public to do gruesome trials, Flanagan said she had "never been so happy".
Before the trial, the pin-up admitted she was "having palpitations" but said she was "determined" to make up for her string of failures.
In order to secure meals for the camp, Flanagan had to put her head in a perspex box and manoeuvre a star across a maze, with one of the boxes containing 10,000 cockroaches.
Despite the critters crawling over her face and hair, the actress clinched 12 stars, provoking presenter Ant McPartlin to ask: "Who are you and what have you done with Helen Flanagan?"
Clearly elated, she jumped up and down and said: "I've never been so happy.
"I've never been so proud of myself ever. I feel on cloud nine."
In tears, she added: "It's so stupid. Honestly I can't tell you how scared I was and just feel really proud of myself and I felt really proud and happy."
On her return, the camp cheered in amazement and later tried to put their feelings into words.
