Linda Robson Becomes Third Campmate To Be Voted Out Of I'm A Celebrity


Actress Linda Robson tonight became the third contestant to be voted out of 2012's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! by the public.

The 54-year-old told Geordie duo Ant and Dec that she couldn't wait to be reunited with her granddaughter and the rest of her family, and admitted that she watched the show every year but its “much harder than you expect.”

“We've had fantastic campmates this year haven't we,” she said, explaining that “Eric's just Eric. If he's rude, he ain't gonna change now.”

Darts player Eric Bristow has been criticised for being pretty nasty to his fellow campmates at times during the show. In particular, when he commented on Helen Flanagan's spots, and told Linda she needed two more weeks in the jungle to slim up. But Linda didn't seem too offended, joking “I think it's a form of tourettes.”

Linda revealed that she wants boxer David Haye to become King of the Jungle this year, because he's gentle, kind to everyone and up for anything, she said.

David certainly proved that when he brought home nine out of nine stars following his 'Scare Plane' Bushtucker trial in tonight's episode.

Also in tonight's episode, soapstars Helen and Charlie Brooks took on the Dingo Dollar challenge, which saw them frantically pumping up a giant balloon to try and burst it and get access to the money that could earn them a treat for camp.

After pumping for more than half an hour, the duo were worn out, and we sure thought it looked like a tough job. So, smart thinking Charlie decided that the balloon was pumped up enough that it would burst from a well aimed stone. It didn't take long for the balloon to explode and golden dollars to shower out of it.

Once all 100 dollars were collected, Charlie and Helen went to exchange their cash for some yummy popcorn, but unfortunately the rest of the camp were stumped by today's question, which was “Who has appeared most in their respective soap operas, Helen in Coronation Street or Charlie in Eastenders.” Even the girls themselves had no idea.

Overall, the campmates voted for Charlie, but in fact Helen had appeared in more than 900 episodes of Corrie while Charlie had starred in just over 800. They should have listened to former Dr Who Colin Baker, who had been saying that the answer was Helen all along.

Later, Helen revealed to TV chief Rosemary Shrager that she used to get really bad anxiety, but since being in the jungle she'd become “so much more confident.”

“After being around cameras 24 hours a day I could never have been more confident,” the 22-year-old actress said. “What have I got left to hide... nothing could phase me.”

Rosemary tried to convince Helen to stop looking in the mirror so often, but Helen fought back, saying “I do know that beauty is within.”

Later, in the Bush Telegraph, Helen said: “People just think I'm ditsy and not as clever as everyone else which obviously I am.”

“People don't take me seriously,” she continued. “I just feel more confident when I've got makeup on.”

The jungle also seems to have changed Made In Chelsea's Hugo Taylor for the better, who revealed to Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts: “Part of me really likes it here. I'm quite enjoying not having it all.”

Hugo explained that he's finding it nice to be without computers, mobile phones and televisions in the jungle.

How do you think you'd cope in the jungle? Would you be able to live without technology for three weeks?

We're looking forward to seeing what's in store for the celebrities in tomorrow's episode, and who will volunteer to take on the next Bushtucker trial to win meals for the remaining eight contestants.
