First up is the iconic ‘Walk the Plank’ trial that will see some of the celebs teetering at the top of a huge tower.

While other celebs will be dropped on a deserted island for a night of isolation.

A show insider said: “The first twist will see some celebrities dumped on an island in the Pacific while the rest of the group head into camp. 

“However the beautiful island will not be what it seems and the group of unlucky celebs will face a terrifying night while completely exposed to the elements.

“They will feel like Robinson Crusoe on the island and it will make the Jungle camp feel like a palace.

“Bosses are determined that this series will be the biggest yet and viewers will be glued to the screen as the celebs test themselves to the max.” 

The terrifying tower trial is back after the series was forced to relocate to Gwrych Castle in Wales for the last two years because of restrictions caused by the Covid pandemic. 

Crew members were snapped assembling the structure on top of a high rise on the Gold Coast.

But it appears there will be another twist this year as the photos show three platforms instead of two.
