What a loser! Helen Flanagan's dropping inches as quickly as she's missing out on stars as jungle hunger begins to take its toll

In the ten days since the celebrities arrived in the Australian jungle, they have mainly had to rely on the temerity of Helen Flanagan, the contestant the public love to torment, to quite literally, bring home the bacon.
However, a mixture of ineptitude, fear and general futileness has prevented the Coronation Street actress from from picking up many stars during her seven Bushtucker Trials.
But it seems that tempers are not the only thing being lost as tummies continue to rumble, but inches, too.
Hourglass: The lack of food in the jungle has given Helen Flanagan's waist more definition
Photographs of the 22-year old actress reveal she now boasts a much slimmer silhouette than when she arrived at the camp on November 11th.
The petite actress was washing her hair in a red bikini when her sudden weight loss became apparent.
Helen's waist was narrow when she first landed in Australia, but is now even tinier after nearly two weeks without eating processed food.
Curvier: When the show began on 11 November, Helen was noticeably plumper, especially around the midrift
Bum deal: The jungle contestants haven't had much to eat since they got to the camp
Slimming down: Helen is noticeably trimmer since she began taking part in the hit show
Concave: Helen looks at her tummy, which has flattened to the point of being concave
As she moved around in the shower, it became obvious that she had also lost inches on her bum and thighs, causing her bikini bottoms to look quite loose.
Similarly, her top seemed to be baggier than previous times she has been seen wearing it in the leafy compound.
Speaking to New Magazine last month, Helen revealed she was content with her shape the way it was.

She said:'I’m quite happy with my weight. I think it’s bad to be too obsessed with your weight or how you look.
'I really like my body the way it is.
I’m 8st and I’m 5ft 4in, so that’s perfect for my height. I’ve got
natural boobs as well.'
If anything, she was probably hoping
that all the sitting around in the jungle and eating various insects
would help her gain a few pounds.
She told the magazine: 'I’d love my bum to be bigger, like Kim Kardashian’s! I love curves.'
