I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Helen Flanagan seems to have transformed herself after taking part in the first live Bushtucker Trial and winning more food for her campmates.

The former Coronation Street actress shocked hosts Ant and Dec during Saturday's trial, which was shown on television last night, when she won 12 stars in the challenge which saw her put her head in a series of boxes with creepy crawlys.

Last night's live challenge was her seventh and having failed miserably in the first five she seems like a new woman and took home five stars in the Bad Day At The Office task which took place in front of her fellow campers.

Last night she had to type her name, age and occupation using a keyboard which was crawling with ants. She would not stick her head in a photocopier full of cokraoches but pulled another star from a pot of yabbies before successfully grabbing goodies from a vending machine containing a snake. The star then drank a cup of blended bug tea and iced bun decorated with a giant stick insect to secure another meal.

After her challenge on Saturday the 22-year-old actress who had threatened to quit said she had "never been so happy".

She added "I've never been so proud of myself ever. I feel on cloud nine."
