Amy Childs, Sinitta, Sir Steve Redgrave and a host of famous faces will compete in Channel 4's new winter sports-themed reality competition, 'The Jump'
Amy Childs and Sinitta will compete in Channel 4's new reality show, 'The Jump'.
The pair are among 12 stars who will take part in the new winter sports-themed competition hosted by Davina McCall.
Other stars who will compete include Olympic rower Sir Steve Redgrave, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, cricketer Darren Gough, former Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt, Anthea Turner, Melinda Messenger, comedian Marcus Brigstocke, Nicky Clarke, Henry Conway and 'Flash Gordon' actor Sam Jones.
The celebrities will be put through their paces as they learn various winter sports including bobsleighing, speed skating and more. Each night, the two stars with the lowest votes will take part in a terrifying ski jump to determine who will leave the competition.
Olympian Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards - who won the first series of ITV diving competition 'Splash!' in January - will coach the celebrities.
He said: "This competition is as much about mental strength as it is about physical agility.
"Winter sports are tough to master. It takes skill, guts and determination to get round a course.
"The ultimate test will be The Jump itself. I know how hard it can be when the world is watching."
'The Jump' is expected to air over 10 nights in early 2014.
