The 22-year-old narrowly lost to suspended Tory MP Nadine Dorries when the pair took part in the first food-related challenge of the series on Tuesday.

Helen finished three of the stomach-churning courses, which meant she failed to win meals for her team.

After the trial, she confessed: "It was disgusting but think that was the most I've ate since I've been here. I don't want to be put up again tomorrow. I'm hoping the public will be a bit kind."

Nadine won the challenge after she managed to gobble down four out of five courses.

First the 55-year-old MP had to knock back a baked spider before moving on to the camel toe, which she found tough to chew but still completed. She also managed to get through an ostrich's anus and swallowed a lamb's testicle but failed to eat a fermented duck egg.

Twenty-four hours earlier, Nadine and Helen made I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! history after they spectacularly failed to complete the Bug Burial challenge in a bid to win food for their teams.

They encouraged each other throughout Tuesday's challenge.

Afterwards Nadine admitted: "I feel sick as a dog."

"Camp will be absolutely thrilled that we're going to eat tonight and we've got a meal. They'll be very excited and it will give everybody a morale boost that I've gone back with dinner tonight."

When I sat down and saw that massive spider with hairy legs on the plate I didn't think I was going to be able to do it.

Despite losing, Helen said she was pleased with her performance which had given her a confidence boost.

"I've never been so proud of myself. I can't believe I ate those things. I'm on top of the world. I know I lost by one point. It's kind of boosted my confidence that I can do things. I feel really happy that I got what I got."

On Monday she talked about quitting the jungle after stopping the burial challenge after only four seconds.

Meanwhile, Nadine is struggling to keep her temper with Hugo Taylor telling viewers she wants to give the Made In Chelsea star "a smack".

The politician, who famously described David Cameron and George Osborne as "two arrogant posh boys", told the Bush Telegraph: "I would say one of the most difficult things for me about being in the camp is having to interact with Hugo every day.

"But one of the things I'm proud of is that I've done it and managed to achieve that because sometimes some of the things Hugo comes out with you just want to give him a smack."
Hugo went on to lose a Dingo Dollar Challenge against boxer David Haye.

"I can't believe I'm crying over something so stupid," he said afterwards. "The smallest thing in here can completely set you off. It's astonishing."

On Tuesday night, the campmates, who had been split into two teams at the start of the series, joined forces. They will soon welcome two new celebrities - TV chef Rosemary Shrager and Kajagoogoo star Limahl.
