Faced with tonight's Deadly Delivery Bushtucker Trial on one hand, and a tribe of ravenous campmates on the other, Helen stuck her head into the perspex box and got stuck in.
The first box contained mixed lizards. She moved the star across the maze and pulled the other out of the box with her teeth, earning her first two stars. “Guys I’m so happy!” she cried.
The second box contained a cocktail of critters – scorpions, crickets, cockroaches and millipedes. “I don't want to know what is in it,” she quivered, and won another two stars.
In the next box were one of Helen’s particular fears – spiders. “Oh My God I f*cking hate spiders” she said but stuck her head in and successfully retrieved two stars.
The fourth box contained soldier crabs. “They could nip a bit,” explained Dec. But once again, Helen put her head in the box and retrieved the star as a crab crawled up her face and tried to get into her goggles. “How the hell did I get eight stars?” she squealed - which is exactly what the rest of the nation was thinking.
Next up was a box containing 10,000 cockroaches. They crawled over her face and hair, even escaping and crawling all over the top half of her body. But she continued and won two more stars for camp.
“Who are you and what have you done with Helen Flanagan?“ joked Ant as she put her head in the sixth and final box which contained five carpet pythons. Miraculously, Helen completely the task, bagging a total of 12 stars.
"I’m so happy. I’ve never been so happy,” she shouted jumping up and down. "I've never been so proud of myself ever. I feel on cloud nine," she added as both Ant and Dec congratulated and hugged her.
The campmates will never believe it!
