First look at terrifying I'm A Celebrity walk the plank task – and there's a new twist | The Sun

I'M A Celebrity's iconic Walk The Plank opening task has been given a huge re-vamp ahead of the new series.

The Sun has confirmed the start date for the hit ITV series, as well as the new 2022 cast line-up.

Now it has been reported the nerve-wracking heights challenge, which features on every I'm A Celeb, will be freshened up.

There are ordinarily two planks installed at the top of a 32-storey building in Australia's Gold Coast.

Yet this time around, new snaps have shown the backstage team clad in hard hats tasked with trying out the stomach-churning challenge.

While doing so, the sky-high images have revealed three planks in total.

This suggests the campmates will be split into three teams to complete the Walk The Plank, in contrast to the two teams that usually battle it out.

Celebrities will be asked to walk to the edge of a plank situated on top of the bright white high rise – before stepping foot in the Aussie jungle.

Strapped in harnesses, the staff tried out the task, which usually has gaps in the plank to add extra peril.

They were later seen hanging off the side of the building, suspended only by their safety gear, perhaps giving a hint of what is in store for the famous faces.

We previously told how the 2022 show stars have been given mental health MOTs to make sure they don’t crack under the pressure cooker atmosphere of the show.

This included divulging any previous mental health issues and admitting to any booze and drugs problems.

The campmates – including Corrie star Sue Cleaver and radio icon Chris Moyles – have all undergone strict processes.

They were checked to see if they could withstand the stress of being sleep-deprived, the pressure of the team trials and being apart from their loved ones.

Celebs were asked about their fears, phobias and anxieties and what triggers problems or episodes.
