Kimberly Wyatt says she signed up to appear on Channel 4's 'The Jump' in order to get into shape before her wedding last month
Kimberly Wyatt was hoping 'The Jump' would get her in shape before her wedding.
The 32-year-old singer signed up for the programme, which saw celebrities competing in dangerous winter sports, before she married her partner Max Rogers last month.
Although she initially though it would aid her fitness she realised how focused she needed to be to make sure she didn't get injured when filming began.
She said: "It didn't really cross my mind how dangerous it would be when I signed on the dotted line. If anything, I felt skiing and skating was the perfect way to get into bridal shape.
"But when I got out there and saw how intense these sports were I knew I had to focus in order to stay in one piece."
Max was more concerned about his wife's demeanour if she lost the competition, rather than potential injuries, however.
He joked to Britain's HELLO! magazine: "It did occur to me that she might get injured, but I was more concerned about the mood she'd be in if she got knocked out of the competition."
The pair announced their engagement in September 2013 and tied the knot on February 22.
