Whilst soap princess Helen Flanagan is fighting the critters in the jungle, it would seem that her I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here antics have left her boyfriend, Man City defender, Scott Sinclair, facing much worse.
Both Flanagan and Sinclair must have known that her taking part in the hugely popular ITV reality show would generate a bit of stick from the rest of the Man City squad, but without realising just how much of a show his girlfriend would make of herself during the first two weeks, Sinclair could not have prepared for almost an entire stadium joining in with them!
So far, it has been Sinclair’s own home fans who have gotten in on the action, in a light-hearted manner, all singing the chorus of Tight Fit’s party classic The Lion Sleeps Tonight from the terraces.
But, with Man City facing one of their main titles contenders, Chelsea, tomorrow, we think that it may be stepped up a gear.
The only saving grace for Sinclair is that it is looking likely that during tomorrow’s high-profile match he will be watching from the safety of the bench, out of site of the mockers.
Still, it will be nice to see the two sets of fans agreeing on something for once, maybe Helen Flanagan is the key to harmony in the Premiership!
Since entering the jungle, Coronation Street star, Helen wimped out of, or just basically failed, the first five bush tucker trials she was selected by the public to do, which resulted in her camp mates practically starving until, by some miracle, she found some hidden strength and managed to bring home enough food to feed them all in the sixth.
Watch one of Helen’s Bush Tucker Trials in the clip below:
I’m A Celebrity continues tonight at 9.45pm on ITV1/ITV1 HD.
