Sinitta is ready to test herself on new Channel 4 show 'The Jump'
Sinitta wants to challenge herself on 'The Jump.'
The 'Toy Boy' singer - who used to date Simon Cowell and Brad Pitt - is set to appear on Channel 4's new reality show 'The Jump' where contestants will be coached in a number of different winter Olympics sports and she claims she signed up to step out of her comfort zone.
She said: "I thought it would be good to get away from my usual environment and do something different."
Sinitta will be joined on the show by several other celebrities former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Amy Childs and Olympian Sir Steve Redgrave and viewers will see them train in activities from speed skating and skiing to skeleton and Sinitta says she tried to keep up with Steve.
She told The Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I've spent the most time with Sir Steve. We're like little and large. He's taking it so seriously and he doesn't do sports for fun so I found it really useful to follow behind him."
The mother-of-two also admitted that her and Amy aren't quite as dedicated to the sports as Steve.
She said: "Amy and I have a laugh - she's great fun to tease and whenever things get too taxing she always says it doesn't matter as long as we look good, and gives me a dab of lip-gloss."
Each night on 'The Jump' celebrities with the lowest judges score in the chosen challenge will have to perform a ski jump, overseen by British ski jumping legend Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards.
