I’m a Celebrity fans claim Sheer Terror challenge is fake

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here viewers were left sweaty-palmed when Sunday’s opening show saw four hapless celebrities complete the terrifying challenger of walking along a suspended bridge, supposedly 334ft high.

But fans of the jungle have taken to Facebook in confusion, after an eagle-eyed viewer spotted an opening scene, which he claimed called the Sheer Terror challenge into question.

Tom Smith posted a screengrab of the opening scene, which appears to show a woman in close proximity to the crane, implying the distance could be much less.

His snap sees two people walking the cranes, as a woman strolls along beneath them- a stark contrast to the Sunday’s challenge which saw Amir Khan, Georgia Toffolo, Vanessa White and Jamie Lomas face dizzying heights as they walked off the side of a skyscraper against the backdrop of the Australian skyline and motorway beneath.

Speaking about his post, which has already garnered over 80,000 shares and comments, he told the Mirror online: ‘I literally caught it out the corner of my eye, rewinded and paused it,’ Tom told Mirror Online.

‘I wasn’t looking to expose the show I was merely pointing out that it looked suspicious’.

But despite his viral post, many have defended the show, explaining that the angle of the filming caused an optical illusion.

One viewer replied: ‘It is caused by the telephoto lens. It was filmed from a great distance.

‘The telephoto effect these lenses have make objects, that may actually have quite a lot of distance between them, appear as if they’re sat close together. The longer your focal length, the more obvious the effect will be.’

And others agreed, adding: ‘Pretty sure they were at the top of that building’.

'This particular scene was definitely not fake. I work in a high rise next to it where we watched the set be built and the entire filming take place. It was filmed on top of a building called focus in the Gold Coast', a fan confirmed

Another fan appeared to dispel the rumours, claiming she witnessed the filming of the terrifying scene.

Allie Brown wrote: ‘This particular scene was definitely not fake. I work in a high rise next to it where we watched the set be built and the entire filming take place. It was filmed on top of a building called focus in the Gold Coast’.

MailOnline contacted a representative for comment.

This isn’t the first time I’m a Celeb has been at the centre of rumours of a ‘fake set’, with claims surfacing that the famous waterfall shower is in fact surrounded by rocks made out of papier mache, and the waterfall is a ‘filtered water installation’.

The claims also follow Jack Maynard’s controversial shock exit from the show after just three days, amid accusations he sent inappropriate messages to female fans.
