I’m A Celeb fans fume over Helen Flanagans unfair treatment on ITV show

I’m A Celebrity South Africa fans were left raging over the “unfair” treatment of Helen Flanagan in Wednesday night’s episode (May 3).

The hit ITV show was back on TV screens for another instalment of our fave stars battling it out in the jungle to become the first ever I’m A Celebrity Legend.

In the episode, the campmates were told they had to split into two “prides” – with newcomers Joe Swash and Dean Gaffney being the pride leaders in which they had to choose their team.

Taking it in turns, Joe was first to select his gang, opting for 62-year-old former Olympic athlete Fatima Whitbread, while EastEnders alum Dean chose Diversity star Jordan Banjo, 30, first.

When it came to the last two celebs remaining, it was between supermodel Janice Dickinson, 68 and 32-year-old Helen.

Ultimately Joe decided to choose Janice over the Corrie babe as he said Janice “scared him more.”

Helen then looked rather awkward as she walked over to Dean’s team.

But fans were left fuming at Joe’s decision to shun the soap star out at the very last round.

Rushing to Twitter to half Helen, one viewer raged: “Why are people underestimating Helen, she’s way better than Jordan at challenges."

Echoing their thoughts, a second person said: "That picking was terrible, Joe not picking Helen was a bit of a d*** move."

Another added: "Nah that’s like getting picked last at PE poor Helen.”

A third mused: "Helen Flanagan has matured an awful lot since her first time in the jungle. She's good this year I wouldn't have left her last to be picked.”

Another viewer chimed in and wrote: “I feel sorry for Helen she smashed her trial but it’s still like they all think she’ll be useless."

“It's crazy how fast we've all flipped to Team Helen,” penned someone else before adding: “When she arrived I was cynical (and I didn't even watch her series) but she's totally proved herself almost instantly."

Elsewhere in the episode, fans dubbed Helen a “strategic goddess” after she hatched up a genius plan to lie to her rival players.

After Myleene Klass and Jordan Banjo won a picnic for their team, Helen was seen parading around the waterfall in a bikini as she enjoyed the fruits of their labour, which included a fruit platter, fresh lemonade and some overstuffed sandwiches.

But as they tucked into their well deserved meals, Helen told the team lie to their rivals, and pretend the feast was underwhelming so they would be less motivated to fight for it tomorrow.

Fans were torn over the move, with some applauding her gameplays, and other bashing it.
