The I'm A Celebrity Jungle Challenge is seriously impressive, with visitors competing in a 90-minute series of challenges - just like Bushtucker Trials (but without any live animals FYI).

Tasks include zip wires, mazes, parachute style jumps and climbing walls, with the park decked out exactly like the show, with Croc Creek, Snake Rock and the celeb camp all recreated.

As per the show, the challenges will see visitors compete to collect as many stars as possible, to be crowned queen or king of the jungle.

And there's plenty of photo opportunities as well as a gift and souvenir shop on site.

"Enjoy the action packed challenge through jungle ziplines, tree top ropes course and vertical climbing walls. It's the perfect day out for all the family!" ITV explain.

"Campmates will venture into the specially created jungle where you'll need to navigate a series of obstacles and challenges. Face your fears, test your nerve and agility, collecting as many stars as you can for your chance to be crowned 'King' or 'Queen' of the jungle!"

William van Rest, ITV's ­director of games, live and ­merchandising, added: "We're trying to create a jungle as closely as we can.

"Some of the games within I'm A Celebrity are things like treetop challenges, and one of the team who helps create the games for I'm A Celebrity is helping us with this."

While there's no official opening date just yet, ITV explain: "The Jungle Challenge team are working hard to get the attraction ready for a 2021 opening, however, as you can imagine we too are having to accommodate the challenges presented by COVID-19."
