Helen Flanagan says she didn’t watch I’m A Celeb as theme tune ‘freaks her out’
Helen Flanagan has admitted she doesn’t watch I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! because the theme tune “freaks her out”.
Asked whether or not she watched her former Coronation Street co-star and runner-up Simon Gregson on the latest series of the show in Gwyrch Castle in Wales, Helen exclusively told OK! that she couldn’t watch the show because it reminds her of the “awful trials”.
She told us: “To be honest the theme tune totally freaks me out! I can’t bear to hear the theme tune.
“I don’t like it as it just reminds me of the awful trials! So I haven’t watched it. I did love parts of the jungle though, I loved everyone I was with and I got on with everyone.”
Poor Helen found herself up for a number of Bushtucker Trials when she took part in the show in the Aussie jungle in 2012.
After admitting she was scared of a lot of jungle critters in the show’s first episode, the British public voted for the former Corrie star to take part in a whopping seven trials in a row.
And Helen didn’t have an easy time, with the 31 year old finding herself struggling and screaming her way through the trials and even refusing to do one.
The actress ended up finished in seventh place on the show, with EastEnders star Charlie Brooks going on to crowned Queen of the Jungle.
And while Helen admits the trials on the show were tough, she says her fiancé, footballer Scott Sinclair, would win every single star on offer.
She continued: “Scott would win all the stars in every trial! We are so different.
“Scott would be amazing in the jungle and he’d actually really enjoy it. He’d love it.”
She added with a laugh: “If he wants to do it and I get a lovely stay in the Versace Hotel then he can go in the jungle!”
As for whether or not Scott would actually take on the challenge like fellow footballers including David Ginola and Wayne Bridge, Scott told us: “Maybe one day!”
