Helen faced her seventh Bush Tucker Trial, a celebrity departed the jungle due to falling ill and tension amongst the celebrities builds.
Helen’s seventh trial was called a Bad Day At The Office. Observed by her fellow celebrities, Helen successfully won five out of a possible twelve stars.
Back in camp Helen admitted to her camp mates that she was disappointed with her performance in the live trial. As the camp mates rallied around her, Charlie commented, “that’s better than you’ve done before.”
David told her, “Out of all of us who has been the King or Queen of the jungle. You’re doing the whole show. You’ve done seven trials in a row. You’re the one they’re voting for, they vote for a reason because they want to see you. They like you or don’t like you, I can’t see anyone not liking you, what is there not to like?”
Later David confessed in the Bush Telegraph, “She’s producing the goods now. Our baby Helen, she’s a true trouper and we’re quietly confident now that she’s going to produce the goods.”
There is also the Bush Buddy Challenge where stars have been teamed up with fellow campmates which involves being tethered to each other. This challenge had clearly started to cause tension amongst the celebrities.
As well as losing their tethers, the celebrities admitted to finding it difficult to stay attached to each other. Nadine admitted, “I’ve got no chance with Eric he keeps un-attaching himself and I’m walking around with a piece of string next to me.”
She continued, “Being attached to Eric is very funny. Eric is not someone who abides by the rules. I will be doing things and suddenly I’ll look down and have an empty tether walking along with me and there will be no Eric because he would have escaped.”
Whilst Hugo added, “I don’t think anyone is enjoying this. There is this lurking mood of anger around the camp. I think someone would like to take one of the cardboard cut outs and smash it to pieces.”
Laughter filled the camp as Rosemary told her fellow camp mates about her experience with a medium.
Eric, quipped, “Was his wife an extra-large.” As the camp mates all laughed, a confused Helen replied that she didn’t understand the joke.
As the laughter subsided, Rosemary finally confessed to her camp mates about her ‘spiritual guide.’
David headed down to camp with a laminate and informed his fellow camp mate that they would all have to stay attached to their ‘buddy’s’ until the fifth celebrity is voted out.
The shocked celebrities were unimpressed with this startling news but David finally admitted that he was actually joking and they could now “detach from each other.”
Colin said, “Being free from tethering is a wonderful thing. It’s like all things you think you’ve got something to complain about then something worse comes along like being tethered. So being untethered makes us feel better than we felt before we were tethered.”
Hugo commented, “The moment I got untethered I literally felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I then noticed how disgusting the camp was it looked like a bomb had gone off, it was vile.”
Rosemary and Colin received a dance lesson from Ashley. The Pussy Cat Doll attempted to teach the pair a move from her hit ‘Don’t Cha’.
Later Rosemary said, “I’ve never done that sort of dancing. It’s not like the cha cha cha or waltz.”
She also got a one on one boxing lesson from world champion David Haye much to the amusement of her fellow camp mates. Rosemary said, “My children at home everybody is going to be shocked. I’m going to get into this, he’s going to do more with me!”
The celebrities were told that they would face their second Bush Buddy challenge and would be competing, once again, for the chance to avoid the first public vote.
The buddy’s who faced the second challenge were, Nadine, David, Hugo, Helen, Rosemary and Linda.
When they arrived at the challenge area they were each placed inside a large box where they had to search and deliver tokens which were hidden on the floor and deposit them into a catcher that was located on the outside of the box.
The buddy who completed the game first would get to spend a night in the Jungle Den with their partner.
David was the first celebrity to complete the challenge, followed by Hugo and Linda. Helen was next out. Seeing that she was the last person remaining, Rosemary said she’d “had enough” and threw in the towel.
Brian Conley has quit the jungle life after falling ill.
