Well, that didn't take long.

I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! kicks off tonight, and before things have really started our poor celebs have been faced with all manner of creepy-crawlies.

Competing this year are Stanley Johnson, Jennie McAlpine, Rebekah Vardy, Dennis Wise, Jack Maynard, Jamie Lomas, Georgia Toffolo, Shappi Khorsandi, Vanessa White and Amir Khan.

All ten celebs met up for the first time at a luxury villa in the Gold Coast, where they were greeted by hosts Ant & Dec.

Before they even got to the jungle, there were scary tasks aplenty.

Amir, Vanessa, Jack, Jennie, Jamie and Georgia were chosen to walk the plank. The plank 334 feet above the ground that is.

And Dennis and Shappi had to skydive into a lake, then swim all the way to a beacon and light a flare.

But Rebekah and Stanley perhaps had the toughest test of the lot.

The pair had to face the Wretched Wreck and its mysterious hellholes.

Having discovered holes on the side of the wrecked wooden boat, they had to stick their hands inside and retrieve coloured tokens.

"My worst nightmare would be putting my hand in a hole with a spider," said Rebekah.

Oh dear.

While Stanley's tokens were guarded by crabs and then toads and yabbies, Rebekah faced rats, and then spiders, cockroaches and scorpions.

Welcome to the jungle.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! begins tonight (Sunday 19 November) at 9pm on ITV
