Former 'EastEnders' actress Louisa Lytton has reportedly signed up to compete in the forthcoming series of 'The Jump' later this month
Louisa Lytton is set to compete in 'The Jump.'
The former 'EastEnders' star, 26 - who was known for playing Ruby Allen in the BBC One soap until 2006 - is the latest name tipped to hit the Austrian slopes as she tries her hand at various winter sports - including skeleton, bobsleigh and speed skating - for the forthcoming Channel 4 show, according to the Daily Star newspaper.
Louisa - who has also starred in 'The Bill' - should be at an advantage because this isn't the first time she's taken part in a reality TV show as she also competed and made the semi finals on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2006.
However, if the gorgeous actress thinks she has any chance of succeeding this time around, she'll have to fight off stiff competition from the likes of Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington and gymnast Beth Tweddle.
And one thing that may stand in her way is her lack of fitness as she recently admitted she rarely work outs.
She said: 'I don't get much time to exercise."
Meanwhile, other names dropped in relation to the forthcoming winter show, which is in its third series, include former Westlife singer Brian McFadden and Olympic champion Linford Christie.
'The Only Way is Essex's James 'Arg' Argent has confirmed he's been offered a huge deal to slip on some skis, while Sarah Harding is keen to do better than her stint on gymnastics-based 'Tumble' last year.
'The Jump', which will be hosted again by Davina McCall, will return to screens across the nation later this month.
