Who’s taking part in The Jump on Channel 4?
Here’s the lineup of celebrities due to take part in this new winter sports based, reality TV contest:
Amy Childs – Model and ex-TOWIE star.
Anthea Turner – Television and radio presenter.
Darren Gough – Retired England cricketer.
Henry Conway – Author, socialite and party promoter, apparently.
Kimberly Wyatt – Singer, dancer and former Pussycat Doll. What British reality series would be complete without one?
Laura Hamilton – TV presenter and 2011 Dancing on Ice runner-up.
Marcus Brigstocke – Stand-up comedian, TV host, actor and panel show regular.
Melinda Messenger – TV host and former glamour model.
Nicky Clarke – Celebrity hair stylist.
Ritchie Neville – Member of the boyband 5ive.
Sinitta – Former pop star and friend of Simon Cowell.
Sir Steve Redgrave – Legendary five-time Olympic rowing gold medalist.
Due to the somewhat risky nature of the sports these celebs are taking part in, this cast list of contestants may be subject to change. Original names Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Sam J. Jones both pulled out of The Jump before the show has even begun airing.
The show which is scheduled to air over 10 consecutive nights, will be hosted by the team of Davina McCall and Alex Brooker. Meanwhile, Olympians Amy Williams and Graham Bell will both be on hand to coach this lineup of novices, with Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards acting as mentor.
