The stars of I'm A Celeb... might be getting hungry after surviving on rice and beans, but will Helen and Nadine be hungry enough to enjoy some jungle "delicacies"?

Who is your favourite I’m A Celeb... campmate?
Who is your favourite I’m A Celeb... campmate?

The viewers do like to see the celebs suffer and, fresh from the trauma of the first Bushtucker trial, Helen Flanagan and Nadine Dorries were again picked by the public to compete in Rotten Rhymes.

Some of their campmates had guessed that it would be one of the show's now infamous eating challenges and, sure enough, the unfortunate pair found themselves faced with a plate of camel toe.

"What do you mean, camel toe?" a bewildered and soon horrified Helen asked hosts Ant and Dec.

Both women buried their faces in their hands as they contemplated what was ahead.

"I bet this is the vilest meat on the planet," Nadine said, not exactly helpfully, as Helen prepared to be first to try to force down a portion of the "treat".

Initially shrieking and flapping her hands frantically, Helen then closed her eyes and tried to get it over with as Nadine chanted at her to just "chew and swallow", before starting to gag.

With the camel toe just one of the dishes the pair will have to eat to win a proper dinner for their camp, will either of them succeed in completing the task?

I’m really scared. I don’t want to eat it ...

Helen Flanagan

Previously, politician Nadine proved to be made of sterner stuff than former Corrie star Helen - lasting around five minutes in Bug Burial when she was buried alive and showered with bugs.

Helen, on the other hand, lasted approximately four seconds in the underground box before screaming: "I'm a celebrity ... get me out of here NOW!"

With both contestants failing to complete the necessary 10 minutes, it was the first time in the show's history that both teams had to go without anything more than rice and beans for dinner.

As the youngest contestant, Helen has been struggling to cope, but has inadvertently provided some comedy gold moments for her older and perhaps wiser campmates.

Among the 22-year-old actress's campfire tales was once thinking she'd found a man under her hotel bed, only to discover that she'd seen her own reflection in a mirror.

"Helen's so innocent - it is like having a seven-year-old in the camp," Linda Robson laughed.

Entertainer Brian Conley added: "She's lovely - she's our little girl that we're going to keep an eyeon and look after."
