I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! stars are set to face the show's most terrifying challenge in history, as they balance on a teetering platform at the very top of a 300ft tall skyscraper.

A handful of this year's stars will face the legendary Walk The Plank challenge, in what appears to be a head-to-head race to win the best camp.

Among the stars facing the Trial are England football star Ian Wright and actress Jacqueline Jossa, who appear to be facing their fears with the heart-stopping task.

Judging by the star's matching coloured outfits, it appears that this year's contestants will be put into pairs to compete for food during their first night in the camp.

In previous series, they have been forced to walk to the end of a wobbling plant at the very top of the skyscraper to press a buzzer at the end, and it remains to be seen whether this year's challenge will have another terrifying twist.

With hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly watching on, the contestants attempt to walk along the lengthy plank despite the vast height and wind throwing them off-balance.

Judging by the snaps from filming, Ian and Jacqueline successfully manage to complete the task as they delightedly embrace after making it back onto the roof of the skyscraper.

Neither star had hinted that they were afraid of heights before the task, but it's likely the thought of balancing at the end of a wobbling platform 300 feet in the air would still be a scary prospect.

Joining Ian and Jacqueline at the top of the high-rise are fellow contestants Kate Garraway, Andrew Maxwell, Roman Kemp and Myles Stephenson.

This year I'm A Celebrity producers have made walking the plank an even more terrifying prospect, after re-working the platform to ensure it is even more wobbly.

Speaking to The Sun on a tour of the jungle set, executive producer Olly Nash said: 'They're going to have to be braver than ever. And only the bravest will survive after walk-in.

'We will be battling it out to have an easier or a rougher ride for the first few days in camp. The rougher ride will be rougher than before. The walk-in itself will see us return to the plank. It's the biggest and most horrendous, wobbliest thing. We tested it earlier in August and we made it deliberately more wobbly'.

Nerve-racking: 'The walk-in itself will see us return to the plank. It's the biggest and most horrendous, wobbliest thing. We tested it earlier in August and we made it deliberately more wobbly,' Olly said (Kate Garraway and Andrew Maxwell pictured)

The stars, who were spotted arriving in Australia over the past few days ahead of making their way to the Jungle, are among several household names in a cast host Declan Donnelly told MailOnline was 'one of the best ever'.

Of course, as the enduring ITV favourite – now entering its 19th series – is known for putting its contestants through a laundry list of gruelling Bushtucker Trials, the new stars have also shared their fears and phobias.

Unsurprisingly, spiders, snakes and creepy-crawlies sit atop that list, while others have admitted that the toughest struggle they anticipate enduring is being separated from their loved ones for potentially a full month.

Kate recently revealed that after she stocked up on fake tan before jetting to Australia, but it caused her to be stopped by customs.

'I bought some fake tan in Abu Dhabi,' she told The Sun. 'As I thought best to get that tan all over every part of my body, and they wouldn't let me through customs.

'I had to have it put in its own special box. I was held up by my fake tan.'
