When Helen arrived at her fifth Bushtucker Trial she was upfront with Ant and Dec.
“I’m not feeling this." she told the duo. "I will have a look (at the Trial), obviously I really want to give everything a go and I’m not a quitter at all, but if I think absolutely no I’ve had enough, then I’ve had enough.”
Making reference to yesterday’s trial, in which her four stars were disqualified, Ant quipped, “Now listen carefully to these rules, because I know you’re not very good with rules.”
Standing before her was a giant jungle hamster cage, which was split into five areas: two crawl-through tunnels, a house, a bathing tub and a hamster’s wheel. Each area contained stars – twelve in total. The trouble was, Helen would be joined by a host of jungle critters, including, rats, meal worms, green ants and spiders.
The first area was the hamster’s wheel. Helen had to run on the wheel to lower stars from the ceiling. She had two minutes to collect the two stars.
Ant offered wise words of counsel: "Think of it this way, the first trial you’ve done you lasted ten seconds, not great, then you got better and yesterday you got four stars. You forgot the rules and didn’t use your mouth but you still got four stars. So you’re going on a journey and you’re getting better.”
Helen agreed to attempt the trial and headed into the hamster’s wheel.
But when she entered the wheel and the klaxon sounded, Helen shouted, “I really don’t want to this, please let me out, I’m freaking out."
Helen continued, “I don’t want to let anyone down, the whole thing is completely freaking me out because it’s my fifth trial. I know it's only meal worms, it's really working me up and I don’t want to put myself through it and get absolutely terrified. Honestly I’m really scared.”
Ant explained, “We’re not here to force you to do anything, we’re just here to explain to you that it was do-able that there were stars on offer and you could have given it a go.”
Helen confirmed, “I just don’t want to do the trial.”
And with that she uttered the immortal words: “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!”
