I’m a Celebrity returned to our screens last night as campmates had to battle through challenges to avoid having to sleep on the floor and eat basic rations.
Former Inbetweeners star Emily Atack made an impact straight away when she was forced to skydive into the jungle from 12,000 feet up.
Emily, 28, threw herself into the challenge but screamed her way down to the ground, producing a noise described as ‘blood-curdling.’
She then screamed in camp when she found a leech on her leg – and people immediately dubbed her "the next Helen Flanagan".
Emily said her skydive was ‘horrendous’ and she didn’t enjoy it
Helen wasn’t the biggest fan of the trials and started refusing to do them

In 2012, Corrie star Helen entered I’m a Celeb history books when she screamed so much that she was nominated for several bushtucker trials in a row – and wasn’t very good at them.
Emily Atack was immediately nominated to do the first bushtucker trial in a public vote last night, in scenes reminiscent of Helen’s time on the show.
And some believe she’ll be nominated to do lots more trials.
Ironically, Emily wasn’t too fond of Helen Flanagan’s screaming back in 2012.
On November 17 she tweeted: "Helen, go home for gods sake. #imaceleb" (sic).
Six years on, Emily is now the one getting on viewers’ nerves because of her loud reaction to jungle life.
People took to Twitter during last night’s episode to express their annoyance at Emily’s screams and beg her to stop.
One wrote: "Wish Emily would stop screaming doing my head in already #ImACeleb."
Another said: "If we could make a request that Emily doesn’t keep screaming while she’s in #ImACeleb that would be great thanks."
Emily has already taken part in the bushtucker trial Viper Pit and it will be screened during tonight’s episode.
We already know she’s had a difficult time as ITV revealed she gets bitten by a snake during the challenge.

To find out how many stars Emily wins for camp, you’ll have to tune into the show.
One thing’s for sure, if she doesn’t do very well at this trial and carries on screaming it’s likely she’ll be nominated for lots more – just like Helen.
But Emily seems the type to throw herself into the trials, which will make for amazing viewing.
Before going in the jungle, Emily said she hoped I’m a Celebrity would be a chance for the public to get to know ‘the real her’.
She said: “I think in a show like this it is nice to showcase
who you are as a person. I think as an actor you are constantly playing other people, I would like people to get to know me on a more personal level.

"Especially when you have been typecast in sexy promiscuous roles, you want to show people you have got more strings to your bow than just that. And I think this show is perfect for that.”
Emily’s representatives declined to comment.
I’m a Celebrity continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1.
