Carol Vorderman looks tense as she faces a 50m drop on the upcoming I’m A Celebrity… South Africa.
The former Countdown presenter, 62, is challenged to climb down from a terrifyingly high platform to win food for the camp in Monday’s series premiere.
Even Aamir Khan admits he was “shattering himself” while Jordan Banjo describes the “agony” he experienced while starring in Deadly Drop.
Helen Flanagan fought back tears challenged to jump from giant red balls suspended 2,000 feet in the air.
Phil Tufnell and Fatima Whitbread, who also fly in a helicopter to take over the chase, look equally worried about taking on Newton’s Cradle.

Helen may be best known for turning down challenges when she first appeared on the ITV series in 2012.
But the actress recently said she won’t be giving up on the Bushtucker trials as she wants to make her children “proud”.
Ahead of her return, she said: “The public knows me best as an absolute underdog in trials. I was useless – really rubbish – but I hope I will be much better this time.
“Looking back now, I see how I was a drama queen in 2012.
“I’m wiser now. I am so determined to make my girls proud too. I’m not going to shout that I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here!’
The show will start on Monday 24 April and will air for three weekdays, with the final week clashing with the Eurovision semi-finals on Tuesday 9 May and Thursday 11.
Posting on Twitter, ITV’s press office wrote: “Confirmed: I’m a Celebrity… South Africa starts Monday 24 April at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.”
Terrible: Even Aamir Khan admits to ‘self indulgence’
Honest: Jordan Banjo describes the ‘agony’ he experienced while on Deadly Drop
A host of stars have so far been revealed taking part in the series, including boxer Amir, 36, former Coronation Street star Helen, 32, and TV presenter Carol.
They will be joined by the late Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell, 64, Diversity dancer Jordan, 30, Happy Mondays star Sean, 60, retired javelin thrower Fatima, 62, and former England international cricketer Phil, 56
The Sun reports that Gillian McKeith, 63, Dean Gaffney, 45, Joe Swash, 41, Andy Wymont, 42, Mileene Klass, 45, and Georgia Toffolo, 28, will arrive at the camp later in the series.
The new series sees the return of some of the most memorable campmates from I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in the brand new setting of South Africa.
The challenges will be bigger and more difficult, and the environment harsher and more unforgiving than the usual Australian jungle.
With no public vote, they will compete against each other in a battle to become the first ever I’m a Celebrity Legend.
Celebs used to a lavish lifestyle may be in for quite a shock when they first glimpse the camp on the Ant and Dec-hosted show.
Their very basic camp has nothing more than a few wooden benches around a fire, some uncomfortable-looking camping beds and hammocks, and an outdoor shower.

Other features of the set – which is six times the size of Australia’s – include a chore board with activities such as cooking and collecting firewood to be assigned.
In this camp, instead of the washing water rolling over a natural rock, it will fall from a shower head suspended from a tree.
The camp entrance also includes a green path down to a covered arch of trees in the camp.
The beds are raised off the ground with wooden stilts to protect the stars from the avid creepy crawlies, but they don’t offer a plush mattress.
A source told The Sun about the new camp: “Everything is bigger, scarier and bolder. If celebrities think they know what to expect, then they’re wrong.
“The only thing they can rely on is the rice and beans diet!”
The publication reports that the celebrities will be stranded in isolation, surrounded by wildlife about five miles from the nearest road and a 40-minute drive from a village.
I’m a Celebrity… South Africa starts on Monday on ITV at 9pm.
