16:20 GMT, 16 November 2012
Ditzy Helen Flanagan has demanded cameras stop filming her after launching a foul-mouthed tirade against I'm A Celebrity viewers.
The former Corrie star turned jungle diva made history when she called for cameras to be turned off on the ITV reality show, begging producers not to air her rant which happened shortly after she was told she would face her third bush tucker trial.
Helen, 22, spewed venom on viewers voting for her, saying: 'It p****s me off that they're doing this to me again. They're doing this to me every single b****y day.'
Stop recording, NOW! Helen Flanagan launched a foul-mouthed tirade about being voted to face her third bush tucker trial
When the actress realised her antics were being filmed as she wandered around camp she screamed at bosses to stop recording.
The Daily Star reports the blonde told producers she was 'having a private moment and getting some breathing space.'
She then said if bosses showed the rant it wouldn't show her in a good light and begged producers to wipe the tape.

An insider told the paper: 'It's a classic reality TV moment when someone forgets the cameras are there and slips up.'
The source added it was tough if someone said something they wanted to take back.
On Thursday Helen came back empty handed
to the camp after failing her third Bushtucker trial in a row on
Thursday's episode of I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
Putting on a brave face: Helen seemed up for the challenge, but soon began to show her nerves
Let's Get Ready To Crumble: The actress needed comforting from Ant and Dec
But the poor actress will be thrown
back into the deep end as she and Charlie Brooks were voted to do the
next Bushtucker trial, which will be set in the water
Cruelty Towers, Helen had to work her way through
the hotel's rooms collecting up to ten stars – with each star
representing a meal for the camp.
Unsurprisingly, several jungle critters were residents at the hotel.
Desperate to make a good impression
after coming up empty handed from the first two tasks, she put on a
defiant face and seemed fully concentrated on the task ahead.
She told hosts Ant and Dec: 'I want
to make a good impression with everybody else. I’m actually looking
forward to it. I really want to do this.'
Not alone: Helen befriends a new feathered friend during the task, but she soon quits the task after being plunged into darkness
Shocked: The star quickly gave up – her third failed trial attempt
However, her defiance seemed to waver, with her threatening to walk out on the show.
She said: 'I need a few minutes. I’m
scared. It just makes me want to go home. If they’re going to keep do
this to me every single day I want to go home. I just really want
people to stop voting for me. I’m not happy at all. I don’t want to do
Hosts Ant and Dec had to comfort the 22-year-old as she broke down.
Production staff were also on hand to offer the former Coronation Street star some reassurance.

It seemed to work, and Helen plucked up some courage to enter the hotel.
Befriending an Ostrich in the first room, which she soon named Olly, the
actress tried to put on a brave face as she searched for the star.
However, despite being warned that
the lights will go off, she seemed shocked after she was plunged into
darkness and screamed to get out of there.
Deflated Helen said afterwards, 'I didn’t realise it was going to go
dark, that freaked me out. Oh I wish I could have gone in there now, I
feel really stupid. I wish I could have gone back in there now. Can I
go back in'
Hugging it out: She needed the show's cheeky presenters to give her some comfort
Before the task, she received a pep talk from previous Bush Tucker rival Nadine Dorries – something which annoyed Brian Conley.
He told the Bush Telegraph: 'Nadine’s
pep talk to Helen, it was a bit condescending. Don’t give her that
pressure. Someone is trying to get in there because they think ‘Oh this
is when the nation will watch because they all want to know who gives a
pep talk to Helen. I would hate that.'
However, Charlie Brooks wasn't amused after seeing Brian helped her with Helen's socks and shoes.
She said: 'Can you actually believe
that Brian actually does her show laces up for her. It all just kind of
miraculously happened. Life just revolves around her I think if she
gets no stars her shoe laces are not being done up and that girl needs a
short sharp shock.'
David Haye later told the Bush
Telegraph, 'Am I disappointed, yes, am I upset, no. She said she tried
her best and that’s all you can ask from our little Helen.'
However, Charlie admitted that she was disappointed she only made it into one room and didn't get one star.
