If the OP doesn't have a right of entry (though given he can establish he is an EU citizen, by means of his expired ID, it is difficult to see on what basis), then better hanging out in Paris/Brussels/Budapest than in a UK immigration detention centre!
I understand that, however if I was the BF officer at Coquelles and I learned that the OP had tried and failed to get through immigration in Budapest and had then travelled over land to have another go at a different (supposedly easier) port, then my suspicions would be raised somewhat.
