The final terrifying preparations for the upcoming series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here were put in place at North Wales' Gwrych Castle on Tuesday. 

New images from the site of the new show saw vast scaffolding erected ahead of the two of the stars being forced to 'Walk The Plank' above a disused quarry, with a terrifying drop of hundreds of feet.

As with every series, the stars will be instantly hurtled into perilous challenges, this time with the stars landing via helicopter and making their way across the scaffolding before entering the castle.

Celebrities including Richard Madeley, Frankie Bridge and Naughty Boy will be subjected to the terrifying launch tasks, with a handful of the stars headed for the plank task. 

Workers were seen hard at it as they prepared for the scenes, with the staggering scaffolding showing the vast heights the celebrities will be subjected to before even entering the show. 

The latest images come after it was reported that I'm A Celebrity bosses were making new additions to Gwrych Castle including a dungeon and a second dingy camp. ITV are said to be creating a new jail called The Clink on the grounds of the estate in North Wales where celebrities will be sent if they misbehave.

According to The Sun, the new sleeping area will be a nod to Snake Rock and Croc Creek and will see camp mates make do with sleeping bags.

A source said: 'The Clink will be an unpleasant place to spend much time, as will the sister camp. If you're one of the initial ten going into the castle, you'd better hope you get the main camp with its relative luxury in comparison.'

The publication reports that one camp will be protected from the elements and have beds while the other will have only limited protection.

Bosses reportedly decided to make changes to the castle after learning they'd be returning for a second year rather than going back to Australia where the show was set before the pandemic.

The source said: 'There were some accusations last year that the celebs had it too easy, with lots of food and more comfortable living arrangements. This year that seems to be set to change.

'Producers worked flat out last year to get it ready against all odds in the midst of a pandemic when other shows were falling flat on their faces.

'This year they've got a bit more time so have tried to be even more ambitious with the show. They don't want to change too much as they were really happy with last year but a few subtle tweaks here and there will keep everyone on their toes.'

Alongside the post, they wrote: 'We're here! Just holding the fort until our celebs arrive'. 

Meanwhile, bosses have reportedly angered locals in Abergele, Wales after closing off footpaths and a local golf course near Gwrych Castle.

Show chiefs are said to be eager to keep out prying eyes when the celebrities move in later this month and have surrounded the castle with steel fences.

According to The Sun, the fences are eight feet tall and run around the entire castle, interfering with trails frequently used by locals.

Earlier this year, residents in the area took issue with the council over whether they had a right to walk around the estate.
