Charlie accepts Helen's personality

I’m A Celebrity champion Charlie Brooks has admitted that Helen Flanagan got on her nerves when they were in the jungle together.

The EastEnders actress was annoyed with Helen, 22, when she kept failing at Bushtucker Trials, forcing the camp mates to live on basic rations.

But Charlie tried hard to accept the ditzy Corrie star for who she was.

I try to teach my daughter Kiki to be accepting of people and their personalities,’ says Charlie, 31.

Yes, Helen drove some of us up the wall at times, but that’s just how she was. I was irritated when we didn’t have any food and I didn’t think Helen was doing her best.

We said: “Stop being a drama queen” and she did try. I have to say, she came on in leaps and bounds.’

Charlie, who beat former Pussycat Dolls starlet Ashley Roberts in the final to win the show, doesn’t think Helen is stupid.

Helen and I aren’t best mates – we’re from different worlds,’ the mum-of-one tells TV Magazine.

But she’s emotionally quite intelligent and a lovely girl. She probably makes some silly mistakes sometimes, but she’s young.’
