'You really need to get a grip': Charlie Brooks lets rip at drama queen Helen Flanagan on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here
00:46 GMT, 17 November 2012
After several years in Albert Square, Charlie Brooks will be used to being surrounded by drama queens.
But the EastEnders star finally lost her temper after having been pushed to the edge by serial over-actor Helen Flanagan after the two faced off in a Bush Tucker challenge.
Charlie, 31, and Helen, 22, arrived pensively at the trial called Come Dive With Me where hosts Ant and Dec explained the rules to them.
Shut up: Charlie Brooks, right, had enough of Helen Flanagan and called her a drama queen on I'm A Celebrity…
Reading them their rights: Ant and Dec explained the rules of Come Dive With Me as the girls prepared for their Bush Tucker Trial
Evening meal: Under the surface of the water sat a jungle dining room set for dinner with 12 stars hidden around the dinning room
Under the surface of the water sat a jungle dining room set for dinner with 12 stars hidden around the dinning room.
Helen and Charlie were told they would have to dive under the water and find the stars which were hidden in five domes set on the dining table, fire place and a crockery cabinet.
Each star in the domes had to be collected only using their teeth and mouths, but they could use their hands when collecting the stars from the fireplace.
Hold your breathe: Helen and Charlie were told they would have to dive under the water and find the stars which were hidden in five domes set on the dining table
Making a splash: Charlie was up first but she struggled to hold her breathe for long periods of time
Star gazer: Charlie managed to get two stars for the camp after struggling with the task
The middle dome was empty and they were told they could return there for a breather. Helen and Charlie were given ten minutes in total to complete the task, five minutes each.
Once they put their heads in the first dome they could not come out of the water, if they did their part of the trial was over.
Contained within the domes were water dwelling creatures including large yabbies, water spiders, eels, water monitor lizards and crocodiles.
Super scared: Charlie braved a dome filled with spiders as she continued with the challenge
Getting a grip: The soap star was not phased by the many spiders that were crawling across her face
Charlie was up first having admitted that she found it difficult to hold her breath as she quickly went into the first dome.
Joined by water spiders she retrieved the first two stars, but as she went into the second dome she screamed when greeted by the small crocodiles.
She managed to get one star but confessed she was panicking and struggling to get her breath.
Breast stroke: Helen Flanagan looked troubled as she came a little close to some water companions
Swimming on: Helen felt confident while doing the task but she made a couple of major errors
Air head: Helen used her hands for some of the stars when she should have only operated her mouth
No sweat: Helen normally can't keep her mouth shut but was doing very well using her hands instead
With words of encouragement from Ant, Dec and Helen, she attempted to swim to the crockery cabinet but had to return to the surface.
Next up was Helen. She tentatively made it to the first dome and was joined by monitor lizards. But she took the two stars with her hands.
Repeatedly told by the hosts that she must use her mouth, Helen went onto the second dome. She was joined in the dome by crabs and again grabbed two stars but with her hands.
A jubilant Helen got out of the pool but was then told her four stars did not count. Ant and Dec explained, 'I’m afraid in the rules it said you have to take them off with your teeth, mouth and you used your hands in both domes. I’m afraid they don’t count. We were trying to tell you.'
Get me out: The former soap star found the whole ordeal a bit of a wash out
Follow the rules: Repeatedly told by the hosts that she must use her mouth, Helen went onto the second dome
A disappointed Helen said, 'I think its because I panic so much, I forget using my teeth. I did my best.'
The girls headed back to camp with three meals but Charlie was visibly ready to erupt at Helen for her diva-like antics.
As the pair headed back to face their colleagues Helen confronted a disgruntled Charlie and said: 'I can feel that you sometimes think I dramatise things. I don’t that’s my natural reaction.'
Charlie responded: 'I think sometimes, and I know that’s you and I’m different and we are two completely different girls, I do sometimes think it’s a little bit drama. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.'
Coming up: Helen believed that she had done really well but was in for a shock
Moment of truth: A jubilant Helen got out of the pool but was then told her four stars did not count
Helen continued: 'I’m naturally like that I’m not putting it on, that’s what I want you to get.'
Charlie then interjected: 'That’s not what I said, I don’t think you’re putting it on.'
Helen then added: 'I wish I could be more like you. I wish I could more like not dramatic, but I can’t help it.'
Later Helen commented on the confrontation, she said: 'I think she (Charlie) said something like ‘you’re a bit of a drama queen’, I kind of take that, when someone says that to me, like ‘oh just cut it out, stop being a drama queen like I’m putting it on.’'
However, away from Helen, Charlie said: 'Just the silliness of it all. Just frustrates me. It’s like ‘you really need to get a grip sometimes.’'
True colours: Helen could tell Charlie was annoyed with and asked her if she thought she was a drama queen
Bad timing: As the camp mates looked on disappointingly, Helen said she felt she was a loser
The camp mates were eager to find out how many meals they had won.
Helen explained: 'When I saw the stars I was so happy to see them I forgot, I just grabbed them and put them in my pocket thinking ‘oh my God that’s two stars.’'
A dejected Charlie then explained: 'They were disqualified because she didn’t get them with her teeth.'
As the camp mates looked on disappointingly, Helen continued: 'I just got too excited to see them (the stars). I felt like such a loser when I came out. Guys I feel sensitive and emotional at the moment so if I get a bit weird then I’m sorry.'
Eric later said to Charlie: 'Glad I wasn’t with her. Its hard work isn’t it. She’s useless.'
Charlie confessed in the Bush Telegraph: 'When you feel you have to walk on egg shells because you might say something that’s going to make somebody cry, it becomes a little bit intolerable to live with all the time. I find myself losing my patience.'
Just annoying: Charlie said that Helen should get a grip as she spoke to other camp mates about her
