It's one of the first terrifying task that the stars have to endure before they are abandoned in the jungle.

And preparations for I'm A Celebrity's high-rise challenge were well underway on Saturday as the hit ITV show erected two huge planks on top of a 32-storey building in Surfers Paradise on Queensland's Gold Coast in Australia.

The jungle series splits the celebrities into two teams while each group takes it in turns to walk the plank 334 feet in the air until they reach the red light at the end, which they have to hold onto for a matter of seconds.

In new pictures ahead of the new series, which kicks off on Sunday 17 November, it saw the 32-storey building transformed into a building site as a collection of scaffolding was erected on the rooftop. 

Two red planks were seen dangling 334 feet in the air while silver towers surrounding them with cameras attached to capture every second of the celebrities' challenge. 

It comes after I'm A Celebrity host Declan Donnelly jetted into Australia earlier this week with wife Ali Astall and 14-month-old daughter Isla, his co-presenter Ant McPartlin hasn't been spotted yet.
