Colin Baker Gets I'm A Celebrity Boot

Former Doctor Who star loses 'Panic Room' challenge against Eric Bristow...

Colin Baker has become the fourth contestant to get booted off this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The former Doctor Who lost the head-to-head "Panic Room" trial against legendary darts player Eric Bristow - with the "Crafty Cockney" using the nerves of steel which served him so well on the oche to his advantage.


Both men had to place their hands into a selection of holes, which contained a variety of creepy crawlies, such as snakes, crocs, lizards, crabs, cockroaches and scorpions - along with stars which they had to collect.

Each had to choose a female helper - with Eric plumping for Rosemary Shrager and Colin picking Charlie Brooks.

After their ordeal their boxes of stars were weighed and Eric was proclaimed the winner.

On leaving the camp Colin told Ant and Dec: "It feels remarkably good."

Meanwhile evicted campmate Linda Robson has been telling tales on Helen Flanagan, claiming that the former Corrie star was asking producers for secret treats.

Linda told The Mirror: "She kept going in asking for chocolate thinking she'd get a treat after doing the trials.

"She kept saying, 'Surely they can see how hard I've worked today? They've got to give me chocolate'. I’d say to her, 'No, love. You're not going to get chocolate until you get out of here'."

And former Birds Of A Feather star admitted she and the others did tire of Helen's repeated failures.

She continued: "We got disappointed with Helen, but I don't think you can comment on the trials until you've done one yourself. I couldn't have done the coffin trial she did. They would've had to take me out on stretcher. Helen did seven trials – that was bloody hard for her."
