Eric Bristow says Helen Flanagan was "daft as a brush" on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here'.
The outspoken darts legend - who came fourth on the ITV1 reality show - slammed his fellow campmate following her antics in the jungle after the former 'Coronation Street' actress amused viewers by continuously failing Bushtucker Trials while in the jungle, leaving her fellow celebrities to go hungry.
Speaking on 'I'm a Celebrity... Coming Out!' - which airs tonight (05.05.12) on ITV1 at 8pm - the 55-year-old star said: "I love Helen but she's as daft as a brush. You couldn't be that stupid if you wanted to."
Meanwhile, the 22-year-old beauty - who played Rosie Webster on the ITV soap - was dismayed by the negative comments she received while in the jungle, and the actress' mum Julia, who jetted to Australia to offer her daughter moral support, admitted Helen's father even shed a tear at the criticism.
She added: "Yeah, that was very hurtful. Even your dad had a little cry. It was difficult."
An emotional Helen admitted she was worried how the negative comments would affect her parents.
She explained: "I will be more upset if it upsets my mum so I don't want to talk about the articles because I'm not having my mum being upset. I don't want to talk about it at all.
"I just don't want people to know that they've upset my mum."
Julia added: "I think they should know. People should know that these things hurt families."
'I'm a Celebrity... Coming Out!' airs tonight at 8pm on ITV1.
