'I'm A Celebrity': Christopher Biggins Jokes 'I'd Have To Kill' Helen Flanagan

'I'm A Celebrity' star Helen Flanagan has been slammed by former jungle champion Christopher Biggins, who called her an "absolute nightmare".

The eccentric 'Porridge' star joked to The Mirror: "I wouldn't want to be there with this Helen from 'Coronation Street', she's an absolute nightmare... I was going to say the 'f' word then.

“If I was in the jungle with her, I'd have to kill her, I think. I'd have to kill her and go and bury her in the jungle.”

Meanwhile, in a column in the Daily Mail, Biggins has warned he thinks someone might actually die in a reality TV show one day.

He wrote: "Today, bullying, ritual humiliation, physical injury and mental anguish pass for light entertainment as TV companies queue up to exploit those greedy, foolish or egotistical enough to take part.

"To date, we’ve only had a few emotional meltdowns and broken bones as a result of celebrity reality TV but, as demand for ever more degrading and brutal television grows, I don’t think it’s far-fetched to think that one day somebody will die."

He wrote the column after comedian Brian Conley exited this year's 'I'm A Celebrity' contest due to illness.
