While usually set in Australia and more recently in Wales, it’s now setting up camp in Salford Quays, MediaCity UK, but this time we can all take part. Aspiring campmates will experience some of the show’s on-screen challenges in an action-packed test against the clock.

Challengers will come face to face with Kiosk Kev in the Dingo Dollar Challenge while attempting to collect stars and be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle.

The Jungle Challenge will also feature Europe’s first ever ceiling-mounted Spyrider; a high-speed track which will whiz above the jungle canopy in just 18 seconds.

Take a leap of faith on Get a Grip and glide through the trees on a zipline and even balance on beams before swinging around on the Jungle Run.

Fears of heights shall be tested during the Scale The Ascent, an 8.1m vertical rock climb, reaching dizzy heights racing across the suspended Treetop Trail.

A taste of the jungle themed setting that viewers are familiar with around each November/ December time is also recreated including Main Camp, the Throne and Winners Bridge.

Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK adds: “The arrival of this incredible attraction will bring a real sense of excitement and fun for all the family to MediaCityUK.

“ITV is already an important part of our community with the presence of the iconic Coronation Street studios and the ‘I’m a Celebrity… Jungle Challenge’ brings the ITV experience even closer to the public, in a unique immersive way.”

Former campmate and 2019 runner-up Coronation Street actor Andy Whyment, took on some of the challenges against members of the public that was live-streamed on Twitter on Sunday, July 18.

I’m a Celebrity… Jungle Challenge officially opens on Friday, July 30. Register online to access 24-hour priority booking from 8am on Tuesday, July 20.

Tickets will go on general sale from 8am on Wednesday, July 21, with sessions priced at £27.50 per child and £30 per adult.
