The Local _ Telecoms _ I'm a celebrity get me outta here - 2012

Posted by: byke 12.Nov.2012, 11:52 AM

Channel : ITV 1 (British TV)
Did anyone catch last nights (11th November 2012) new series of I am a celebrity on ITV1 ?
It was an eclectic list of contestants, including old Colin Baker (Doctor Who) who looks very different to the man I saw on telly as a younger person.

Colin Baker
Ashley Roberts
Linda Robson
Helen Flanagan
Hugo Taylor
Eric Bristow
Brian Conley
David Haye
Nadine Dorries
Charlie Brooks

Now these are the current contestants for the show.
But does anyone have any thoughts on who might stay for a good period of time and who might get voted out?

If I was a betting man, my cash would be on Linda Robson taking the win.
I really like Brian Conley, but imagine he is going to loose his charm and charisma as soon as the show drags on - Resulting in a happy chappy suddenly becoming quiet tired and miserable.

Personally I hope we see MP Nadine Dorries voted out first.
I don't like politicians using such shows as a stepping stone, and quite frankly she is about as interesting as a wet flannel. Her political career has been rather uneventful, and the hype surrounding her would appear to be unmerited. And given her career, I really hope she gets voted off before she gets a chance blab. Although it would be interesting to see how ITV handle that as I suspect they would like to see he on longer, and I am sure they paid her a pretty penny to be on the show.

So I my mystic meg predictions of who will be the winner and 2 runners up are :

1. Linda Robson
2. Colin Baker
3. David Haye

Anyone else watching the show and have any predictions?

Please note that the above show requires a UK IP address to see it.
There are many companies offering UK IP's through the use of https://www.vpnuk.info/index.php?r=91, Smart DNS etc for residents outside the UK. Anyone interested can do a quick search of the forum to see many reviews from different members.

Too early to call...one thing is for certain Helen Flanagan is going to be voted to do all the tasks along with Nadine until one is voted out.
Never understand why people like Helen get voted out quickly, its people like her that makes the show, her constant crying squealing and whingeing stops its being boring.
IMO the first one out should be Hugo Taylor (never heard of him before) he appears to have the personality of a slug, can you imagine if we were just left with contestants like him, wouldn't bother to watch.

Posted by: byke 12.Nov.2012, 12:21 PM

I am still secretly hoping that Trinny and Susannah join the series as rumored.

Posted by: Hisingen 12.Nov.2012, 03:43 PM

Let's hope, too, that Nadine Dorries geta a hammering.
It does, though, make you wonder why they are all called 'celebrity'. Not many seem to really fit the bill. Dr. (Colin Baker) Who is the only name I know other than the nutty female MP.

You obviously don't watch enough darts and soaps

The ditzy one from Corrie is really annoying - screaming about a twig in her hair when the otherwoman had been bitten by fire-ants or whatever

However I find myself warming to "Evil Jannine" (Charlie) from Eastenders

Posted by: byke 13.Nov.2012, 11:45 AM

I was suprissed at how rough Helen Flanagan looked after the slap came off.
She looked like a cross between a teenage boy, and a bottom thats been slapped a lot.

Should be fun tonight to see who can keep down the bush tucker trials.

Posted by: Puffin 13.Nov.2012, 12:48 PM

It was hilarious on the first day when they arrived in camp - the others were like "shall we light the fire?", "do we collect wood?" "where are we going to sleep?" and suddenly she was in her bikini - she'd changed straight away - probably she thought she'd get more air time. Hilarious also when she realised they had to changed the toilet buckets themselves biggrin.gif

She comes over as very babyish - spending £75/100 per week getting her hair blow-dried 3 to 4 times as she can't manage a hair-dryer herself and not realising that a rented apartment doesn't clean itself - and as for the bathrobe ... rolleyes.gif

The others seem to be treating her as a cross between a toddler and a pet

But I can see her refusing the bush tucker eating trials so she might be less amusing the hungier they get

Posted by: Flutterbye 13.Nov.2012, 02:31 PM

I knew this would happen, so stupid to keep voting the same two to do the tasks, doesn't give the viewers a chance to see what the other contestants can do.
You just knew that Helen would never stay in that box, in my opinion she is getting her salary under false pretences, I doubt very much she will complete tonights task so life is easy for her.
Make her empty the dunny every day until she at least has a go at a task. rolleyes.gif

As every MP and the voters in her constituency are all voting to to keep Nadine in the jungle for ever if possible, I expect that she will be the last one remaining. That means that more money will be donated to charity as she has reluctantly said that she will not keep any money she wins, especially as she is still being paid by the UK taxpayer.

She has made a big mistake in thinking that the British public would love her for saying what everybody else knew about Cameron and Osborne - that they are a couple of posh tossers

British female politicians from both sides, Harman, Smith, Bercow, Widdecombe and now Dorries, just can't seem to stop embarrassing themselves on a public stage.

It's as if that when they decide to sign up for public 'service' they lose any self-awareness.

. . . .

You are more right than you know. Haven't watched a soap since the very early days of Crossroads! ! And you perhaps can't even remember when that was, it was so long ago. The two names I mentioned only came about due to seeing them on the news. I must, however, admit to watching some of the Inspector Montalbano of late, and enjoyed some of the scenery involved, but not so much the 'storyline' or lack of same. Prego, or is it Ciao??

You do not appear to have your facts correct, Harman and Smith are both disgusting B'Liar women so not worth a mention.
Be-Cow is NOT a politician, she is the wife of the speaker of the House of Commons.
Her husband is a vile little man who suffers from small man syndrome being 5ft 5in, he is a pompous ass full of his own importance, he was elected into the position of Speaker by the last Labour government, he is not exactly the most popular speaker we have ever had and will not be missed when he goes.
His wife suffers from delusions of grandeur and thinks she is more important than she is, she seems to think she is "with it" by tweeting stupid tweets, hopefully her latest effort will be her downfall and Lord McAlpine will sue her for what she "tweeted" about him.
Ann Widdicombe was a very popular MP for Maidstone, she always won the seat with a very large majority.
As far as I know she did not do anything "embarrassing" while she was an MP and if she wants to go on a reality show or do panto now she is retired so what, at least she was not involved in the MP's expenses scandal unlike Smith who stole £116,000 from us by claiming a room in her sister's house was her second home and we were even paying for her husband's porn films, you really couldn't make it up sad.gif

Not to mention male politicians as well
- don't forget Lemit Opik in I'm a celebrity - and his famous Cheeky Girls fauxmance
- John Prescott in Gaving and Stacy? etc etc

Of course it would be great to get Boris on the show

Posted by: Puffin 14.Nov.2012, 09:51 AM

Is anyone else getting irritated by the boohooing posh boy - especially when he cried because he couldn't climb the wall as fast as the boxer

Posted by: Flutterbye 14.Nov.2012, 12:02 PM

Yes...was hoping last night he had "cried" enough to be voted to do the next task, but unforunately not...what a wimp he is.
Although Helen did not win the head to head at least she managed to eat some of the disgusting dishes.
Its not on tonight as we have footie, just checked who is presenting and it is Adrian Chiles so won't be watching as I can't stand his "brummie" accent...look out a DVD I guess.
Just to show I am fair.

From that I gather you don't remember when anyone doing a commentary (on radio at least) had to have the 'BBC English', and it was considered a very radical change when they introduced someone having a 'slight' northern accent. Hope you don't live near to any Brummies, tho'.

Posted by: JulieLou40 14.Nov.2012, 01:45 PM

I only watched Sunday's last night on the proxy, so I'm a bit behind.

At first watch, Colin seems like a kindly old duffer (even if he quite obviously stopped the others from getting to the helicopter on time the first night due to his lack of fitness), and I think he'll be a nice guy to have in. Helen is an irritating airhead, and Hugo needs to grow a pair.

Aah...think this series is going to be good laugh.gif

P.s I had to laugh when Colin said he hoped the other team would have somebody really weak in the task against Hugo, and it was David Hayes. Ha ha ha

Thankfully no...I make a point of never travelling north of Watford.

I think you will find she is getting on a lot pf people's tits, I don't understand why the producers have allowed this to continue unless they are hoping it will cause trouble in the camp.
I think Eric Bristow has a short fuse so would not be surprised if he kicks off also it can't be very healthy just eating rice and beans everyday.


Posted by: JulieLou40 18.Nov.2012, 05:52 PM

To be honest, I don't understand why the producers don't just get rid. Just tell her she's out, announce it in the evening show that she has been kicked out, and move on.

Posted by: byke 18.Nov.2012, 07:12 PM

Simply put, the people are paying for her to stay.
By phoning up and getting her to do all these challenges.

And thats the point, more people want to see her suffer and maybe quit than actually finding someone else to do the challenge and enjoy the show.

Well well well...don't know how long she lasted though.


Posted by: byke 19.Nov.2012, 11:40 AM

Who would have believed last nights show ...
It will be interesting to see if Helen is still as loathed, and will be revoted back into trials.

So much for politician hatred ...

Posted by: sometimesinsweden 19.Nov.2012, 01:50 PM

Never seen it before, but from this thread it sounds like bullying a somewhat vulnerable 21 year old girl to do things she doesnt want, for the sake of entertainment and profit for a tv company.

So much for caring britain!

Not "vulnerable" but a shrewd cookie who has better acting skills than most gave her credit for to maximise airtime, gets paid thousands for 3 weeks work to guarantee future job offers - I don't believe people sign up for this show without knowing what is coming wink.gif

Strange how all of her "fears" and "phobias" literally vanished last night when she sensed the tide was turning and all the stuff that was impossible the day before she was suddenly able to do - she was suddenly tough and the ditzy "please look after me" side of her totally disappeared - but seems she had some people fooled

Posted by: Flutterbye 20.Nov.2012, 12:03 PM

Couldn't have said it better, you don't turn from zero to hero that quickly, Helen Flanagan has been playing a game from day one.
I am getting tired of the "Brit" bashing on this thread, first it was our politicians "embarrassing" themselves, Swedish politicians are perfect are they?...I very much doubt it...secondly we as a nation are "bullies" for keeping on voting for Helen, as the majority of the nation do not vote me included, I find that comment highly offensive.
This thread is called "I'm a celebrity get me outta here-2012 British TV-ITV 1", its for commenting on the program nothing else.

What Brit bashing?
Just about everybody commenting here are Brits.
What we Expat posters say is we just find the self seeking celebrities so naff. I heard that Dorries daughters keep voting for Mum. Seems like they want her to stay as well as all her fellow MP's

Posted by: Puffin 20.Nov.2012, 07:05 PM

So what happened to Brian? Mental breakdown? No-one seems to be talking about it

Posted by: byke 20.Nov.2012, 07:33 PM

My fictional imagine says, Brian was having issues and the log that pushed him over the edge led to him drinking alcohol at the jungle bar (either in a sneaky way or blatantly in front of everyone). And since Brian is a recovering alcoholic, this put him back at square one. And when or if the producers found out they yanked him on medical grounds.

I was talking to the wife earlier and said ... "I wonder how many women dislike Hellen"?
As her whole persona and her body movements and pouting seem to (IMHO) put a lot of womens backs up in a bitch cat fighting way. My misses hates Hellen and constantly see body movements such as pouting that she feels is a taught behaviour to get out of a situation.

So if it is mostly women who voted for Helen, time after time.
It shows a slightly sadistic side of the female species which we all have ... but would appear slightly more defined in this instance.

Posted by: sometimesinsweden 20.Nov.2012, 07:46 PM

Women, in general, hate women.

They pretend they don't and that they're 'sisters' and all in it together against the evil males, but when it comes down to it, they're looking over their shoulders, comparing themselves with their friends and generally jealous and vindictive with each other. I'm not saying men aren't, just that women do it in a much cleverer and passive-aggressive way - along the keep your enemies closer than your friends vibe.

You just have to read a women's magazine which are full of pictures of other, more famous women maybe looking slightly overweight and spotty and this shit sells like hot cakes - because they read it, gossip about it and feel better about themselves. This doesn't really exist in male culture. We'll look at pictures of women, observe the female form and enjoy it - and get called sexists/pigs for it. Whereas women lap this up preferring to critique it - rank hypocrisy.

It's a huge myth that men are misogynistic innately - on the whole, we love women. But usually it's women who are their own worst enemy. Bitching, back-stabbing, creating unnecessary alliances, taking sides in others arguments and the rest. Every hetero male on here will see it for what it is.

Steig Larsson got the premise of his books wrong - went for the sensationalist violence towards women, which is fortunately rare. The constant mind-numbing destruction of each other by other women is ignored in our society.

Most people (women?) Seem to think Helen tends to flash her boobs a bit too much. Even her grandfather thinks she should cover up a bit more. Personally, I think Rosemary should get into a bikini. laugh.gif

It will be interesting to watch this sleep in a bug bed challenge tonight.
As what I understand, each contestant will be subjected to only 1 type of creature.
And as we know each contestant has their own limits ...

So one has to question if the show will be steered to help boost viewer ratings by specifically targeting certain individual players and combinations of bugs to provoke responses.

Even if it was possible to get a shock response from each player, it wouldnt make good TV.
So I suspect that 1 or 2 contestants will have more focus on them - in part by ITV planning.

They need to add Karl Pilkington to the show.

Although I do think that women may be less gullible of other women putting on a little girl act to gain sympathy/get people to do things for them whereas some men seem to fall for it more easily

Just look at the difference between Helen and Ashley the 2 very young and pretty girls in camp and who is playing games and who is not!

But this threw up some very interesting results last year - remember how they put that model in with the snakes or was it rats? but she was great and surprised everyone by being fine and talking to them

By the way I loved Colin and Rosemary learning the Pussycatdoll dance from Ashley - the oldies are really game

... although I was surprised to discover that Eric Bristow is only 55 - he seems much older - must be his "grumpy grandad" persona

Posted by: Flutterbye 22.Nov.2012, 12:06 PM

Brian Conley's wife is blaming the shows prducers for not getting her husband out quicker, think thats a bit unfair as Brian is an adult and possibly if he is a bit frail mentally due to drink problems he should not have gone on the program.
I beginning to feel a little uneasy with the animals they put in with the celebs, I know the snakes are not venomous but one in the bed bug task did attempt to "strike", does anyone remember a show Noel Edmunds had on a Saturday night (can't remember the name of it) when they pushed the bounderies too far and a contestant died, it ended his career until Deal or no Deal came along.
I hope the producers don't make the tasks too dangerous and there is an accident.
I knew Nadine would be the first one out rolleyes.gif

Limahl went out!
Strange how some turn of events can change perception so quickly.

I thought Limahl's boo-hoo moment was designed on purpose to draw attention to him in an attempt of lasting longer in the camp.

So I was happy to see him join Nadine.
Together they can re-record the hit "The ever spending tory".

Posted by: byke 27.Nov.2012, 09:22 AM

Poor old Hellen got voted out.
Shame no one is around to see her frumpy pout now she is out.

I was really hoping that Colin would have stayed in longer also.
Will be interesting to see what the show is like now that most of the interesting contestants are out. And I dread to think what TV will be like if Rosemary wins.

Posted by: Ballcocks 27.Nov.2012, 10:11 AM

Surprised that Helen is out and Charlie is staying. Helen was in my predicted top six with Ashley, Rosemary, David, Colin and Eric.

I think that Eric will be the next out, he was amusing at first but has now become rude and predictable.

Would like to see Ashley win but I suspect that it will be Rosemary !

Posted by: Puffin 27.Nov.2012, 10:52 AM

I think that Helen has been trying a little too hard with faketangate, the mirror tantrum and the bra thing + all that rubbish about her bust size enlarging when she eats ... smile.gif - she was looking too desperate

I think some of Eric's comments to Helen have been cruel but true - the fact she is a baby who cannot blow dry her own hair and sends her towels to the dry-cleaners!!!

Posted by: Puffin 27.Nov.2012, 10:55 AM

I think Ashley is coming over very well - loved her screams when she was camp meddler - she didn't et much look in during week 1 when it was "the Helen Show"

Posted by: byke 27.Nov.2012, 10:56 AM

Hellen seemed allot more assertive and on the ball after eviction.
Bloody good actress.

Posted by: Puffin 27.Nov.2012, 11:06 AM

I know - she seemed to think that her "dizzy blonde in a bikini" act would go over well - it was the same during the trials - one day she refused to start (and stand in a hamster wheel) the next day she got 12 points puttin her face in cockroaches

I think that her little girl act probably works for her in normal life to get out of stuff she doesn't want to do - perhaps the curse of being a child star

I so agree with you, as an "oldie" I have never heard of her before but she is willing to get stuck in with the tasks and comes across as a very nice person, I really hope she wins.
Apparently Helen is locked in her hotel room, maybe its the hairdressers day off blink.gif

Well, I see that my Rosemary to win prediction came unstuck last night. To be honest I will probably miss her, irritating that she was.

Not been quite the same bitchiness during this series, It's really missed a Shaun Ryder/ Gillian or Anthony Cotton/ Fatima combo. Eric is just rude

By the way does anyone else think that it was wrong to have Charlies daughter involved in that behind the doors game? Its OK to torture the contestants but the little girl must have been disappointed to not see her mum

Yep. I was just thinking that when I watched last night's episode on the proxy this morning. Poor little girl must have been very upset indeed. I think they were wrong to do that to her.

Incidentally, I do wish that ITV would be a bit more careful about where they splash the news of who went out last night. I don't always have time to watch it on the evening, and it drives me crackers that as soon as I go into the I'm a celebrity page on ITV, they tell you who went. Why can't they just say "Click here to see who went" instead of doing it like they do?

From reports in the Star and Mirror and ITV Good Morning, Help has gone into a right mess. She has locked herself in her room and refused to do any interviews for the followup program or her interview for ITV good morning. On arrival at the hotel, she went in via the underground car park to avoid the media waiting for her.

Posted by: Puffin 29.Nov.2012, 12:05 AM

She seemed truly shocked to be evicted - I honestly don't think it had occured to her that she wouldn't win the show

She is quoted in the UK press as saying she thought the show would be just "wearing a bikini and making new friends"

Posted by: byke 29.Nov.2012, 12:45 AM

Hugo got voted out ... I kinda expected that.

But I have to say something regarding the adverts for Iceland christmas food ...
I know its the same every year, but who in their right minds even buys that stuff? it looks so gross.

They do something called mini cheese cakes and often show them between the show, and I cant help but always thing that they look like Kangaroo anus. Especially as on the advert on TV they are more pale and jelly looking.

I dont know if thats the intention, but given its being marketed as christmas treats ,,,, It seems very odd.

But I have to say something regarding the adverts for Iceland christmas food ...
I know its the same every year, but who in their right minds even buys that stuff? it looks so gross.

I know

What puzzles me is the "lasagne bites" - being sold as a party finger food - how would you even
- pick up a piece of hot gloopy lasagne?
- eat it with your fingers without it spraying gloop over you clothes
definitely a bush tucker trial

I'm sorry Eric has gone, will miss Ant's impersonations of him, love Ant and Dec, the show would not be the same without them.
The feeling on various sites is Ashley will win.

I think it will be between Ashley and David

Although my daughter and I were discussing last night that we don't know how Charlie stays in as she is not so active - although there was an upswing of sympathy when she missed her daughter behind the door. Her daughter was a smart one though on the phone last night. Perhaps Charlie has the full Eastenders cast ringing in for her

Unlike byke, I think most of Iceland's party food looks really nice. But I too am puzzled by the lasagne bites blink.gif

It does not look so good it reality, they air brush it to make it look good. It is the same with most food adverts. If they showed it as it really is, nobody would buy it laugh.gif

Touching up the lasagna bites is the way they get a soggy bit of pasta and mince to look edible.

Just what you want in your party frock - not!

I still remember a advert for iceland a few years back, where a mother is feeding her children "mince meat" - but it appears to emanate from what looks like a large animal feed bag.

But best of all, the mince has been processed in such a way and because its frozen comes out in pellet form. All the same size, frozen etc.

It really did look like some sort of sick livestock feed.
And I wouldn't be surprised if it was to some degree processed in a factory designated for such to help reduce costs and have access to industrial additives to reduce actual meat content (keep prices down).

Anyway, Davids out!
I am glad to hear that ...

Question is, Charley or Ashley.

My money is on Charley winning.
Not because she has been a better celeb, but simply because she is not american.
I have a feeling that when it comes to game shows like this, their is no chance a non british celeb can win it.

I remember back in the day when Kerry katona was doing the "Mum's go to Iceland" ads - before the drugs and booze exposé - that she was feeding her kids white and flacid "salmonella sticks" of chicken that didn't need to be defrosted ... yuk

This is a difficult question - I am amazed that Charley has stayed in so long! Perhaps down to the Eastenders vote. I also think that Charley is getting the sympathy vote given that sections of the british media are trying to claim that it was "child cruelty" in the doors game where Charley's daughter had to return to the 5 star hotel without seeing her mum!

However Ashley has made a better impression and has been surprisingly tough!

I agree, Ashley is the better jungle celeb.
But Charley has the kid factor ...

I do hope Ashley wins based on her performance, rather than Charley for her association to her child. (Which IMHO should never have appeared on the show behind the door) If Charley was clever and wanted greater career exposure she should have walked when that happened.

The media frenzy, had she walked and ITV exploiting children without their parents consent would have propelled the actress into more work than if she had stayed and won the show.

I very much doubt if this was done without permission of parents or guardians - not everyone's kids appeared. Charley's mother (Kiki's grandmother) could have done it instead as Davis Haye's mum did (we didn't see his son)

In fact Kiki seemed to be not upset at all apart from the cross face that her mum didn't win - and was fine and happy on the phone call the next day - she seems much more mature about it than some sections of the press who believe that kids cannot cope with losing a game

Mmmm didn't see that coming, honestly thought Ashley would win, I don't watch Eastenders but I guess Charlie must have a large fan base with the people who watch and they all voted for her.
Anyway it was not very memorable this year and we have CBB in the new year to look forward to laugh.gif

Posted by: byke 2.Dec.2012, 11:57 AM

As predicted, Ashley didn't win.
I really hope that next year they can get more interesting B celebs to do it.
As it felt somewhat watered down this year.

The best bit this series was David saying when it first dawned on him that he was famous. Coming back from a big fight in Germany, which he won, he was met at the airport by armed guards. His first thought was 'shit, what have they found in my bags'. laugh.gif
