I'M A Celebrity is just days away – and these pictures show the moment contestants filmed their dramatic entrance scenes in vintage cars and helicopters.
Viewers won't have long to wait to see the action unfold in Gwrych Castle – which is set to be the toughest series yet with stars facing more trials than ever before.
But football icon David Ginola didn't look fazed by the challenge ahead as he gave the cameras a thumbs up while sharing a laugh with co-stars Dame Arlene Phillips, Kadeena Cox and Matty Lee.
It's a good job they appear to be getting along despite the tense situation.
They're set to spend the longest time together in the castle yet with as many as 24 gruelling challenges.
The 10 stars, including Richard Madeley and Frankie Bridge, dressed in the trademark castle uniform as they posed for their official photos for the ITV series this week.
Soap stars Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson are visibly absent – but although they haven't yet posed in their own red bodywarmer and hat, we can confirm that they are still part of the line-up.
The two men will join the castle as late arrivals next week after the series has already kicked off – which is sure to secure some early iconic moments as they will no doubt need to take part in a Bushtucker Trial as part of their entrance.
And it will be no mean feat after last year's contests were slammed for being "too easy".
Speaking from Gwyrch Castle, I'm A Celebrity's Executive Producer Olly Nash said: “We did set out at the beginning to make it much tougher. They are in for longer, the trials are bigger.
"The trials were limited last year and this time they are much closer to the Australian series in terms of scale.
“Absolutely they are harder and bigger and there are more trials over the series than ever before and more triallists taking part. That was the learnings of having one series here.
“We have 24 trials this year, I think normally it is closer to 20 in a full series, it is the most ever and absolutely the most celebrities taking part.”
Giant towers are already in place in front of the castle ready for a huge challenge to start the show.
The Turrets of Terror challenge will be part of the celeb's entrance task – but fans will have to wait until Sunday to see the drama unfold.
They will compete in two teams to win the chance to stay inside the castle, or be banished to the new outdoor medieval prison camp called The Clink.
The space – new for this year – is uncovered and will be freezing as night falls.
