Highlights included the former Coronation Street actress stroking a crocodile...and, well, that was about it. 

Flanagan reached new levels of tabloid fame after appearing on the reality show last year and was happy to fly back to Australia (presumably on ITV's tab) to support the current crop of contestants that include Joey Essex from The Only Way is Essex, Kian Egan from Westlife, and snooker star Steve Davis.

Flanagan famously received a torrent of abuse from viewers after last year's shown and says she sympathises with beauty queen Amy Willerton, who hasn't settled in the jungle.

"I needed to be mothered in there.I couldn't go to the shower or the dunny by myself because I was scared.That's why people should mother Amy."

Flanagan caused controversy earlier this week after allegedly telling The Sun that she wouldn't consider dating Joey Essex because he was "too thick" to be her boyfriend, adding, "Opposites attract so I wouldn't go for Joey." The reality star - known for his 'unique' view of the world - admitted in the jungle that he couldn't tell the time properly because he'd only ever owned a digital watch.

A spokesperson for Flanagan said: "Helen never said Joey was thick and she is having a really good time over there despite rumours of her locking herself in a room."

Essex remains the bookies' favourite to be crowned King of the Jungle.
