Additionally, while Spears, Humes, and Pickard grappled with the skydiving exercise, Fred Siriex, and Danielle Harold, faced another heart-stopping challenge. Named the ‘Pole Position’, this new idea was a reframed variation of the renowned ‘Walk the Plank’ games. Seemingly, the celebrities had to race against each other while balancing along flimsy flagpoles, despite staying at a suspension of 110 meters above the ground. 

Trying to unfurl the flags, as per game rules, they were seen to grasp every chance at winning, maintaining dominance precariously! Moments after the heart-stopping race concluded, a colossal thunderstorm swept in, drenching the flagpoles and the brave participants. The intense rain and gusts of wind rattled the flag-bearing stands protruding from the Focus building in Surfers Paradise, leaving even the bravest contestants shaken by the harrowing task.

As the electrifying premiere wrapped up, it was clear that this season of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ will rock beyond its skydiving event!
