I’m A Celebrity star Helen Flanagan on wearing her engagement ring
Speaking to OK! Magazine, Helen revealed that she wore her engagement ring in the camp due to her break up being so fresh to the time of filming.
We’d only just broken up, and I didn’t want everyone to be asking: ‘Where’s your ring?’
She said: “I did wear my engagement ring when I was in the jungle. We’d only just broken up, and I didn’t want everyone to be asking: ‘Where’s your ring?’
“I didn’t want to talk about it… I wanted to keep it private for the kids, I didn’t want to be talking about it on the show.” She added: “I did find that difficult, because I had all that going on in my head. He’s a very private person, while I’m an open book. But we were together for 13 years – we both needed to deal with the break-up.”
