Heather Mills is reportedly set to take part in the Channel 4 reality show 'The Jump' in which she will compete in various winter sporting activities against a host of other celebrities
Heather Mills will reportedly take part in 'The Jump'.
The 46-year-old star - who is the ex-wife of Paul McCartney - is close to finalising a deal with Channel 4 bosses to join the latest series of the reality TV show, which see celebrities compete against each other in various winter sports including speed skating, slalom and ski jumping.
Heather - who lost part of her left leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993 - will join Zara Phillips' husband Mike Tindall and the Speaker's wife Sally Bercow on the Austrian slopes next month and is keen to join the show "on the same basis as able-bodied athletes".
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are still confirming the deal but she is expected to sign on the dotted line in the next few days before heading out to Austria to start practising.
"Heather is keen to take part on the same basis as able-bodied athletes.
"She loves a challenge and thinks 'The Jump' is a great platform."
The former model is already a keen skier and was ranked 28th in the world at slalom before unceremoniously quitting the UK disabled ski team last year following a spat with an official.
Heather reportedly screamed, 'You bitch', at International Paralympic Committee member Sylvana Mestre after she was told her footwear hadn't been approved for the competition.
