Sixteen famous faces will take on some of the most dangerous winter sports events as they battle it out to be crowned the champion of The Jump 2015

In a bid to steal The Jump trophy from series one winner, Joe McElderry, sixteen celebrity men and women will be taking to the ice for the Channel 4 series a second time around.

Competing in the eight extreme sporting events, the all-star male line-up includes ex-England rugby captain Mike Tindall, Jackass star Steve-O, JLS singer and new father JB Gill, Paralympian Jon-Allan Butterworth, dancer extraordinaire Louie Spence, hilarious Gogglebox star Dom Parker, TV & radio presenter and former England cricketer Phil Tufnell, plus former TOWIE star Joey Essex.

The battle of the sexes will be fought by ex-model Heather Mills, wife of the Speaker of the House of Commons Sally Bercow, ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, pop star Stacey Solomon, Strictly Come Dancing‘s Ola Jordan, socialite Lady Victoria Hervey, Heptathlete Louise Hazel and Made In Chelsea‘s Louise Thompson.

This is not a competition for the faint-hearted as it will push the sixteen celebsto their limits and will see them go head-to-head in the dangerous Skeleton event, reaching speeds of up to 60mph. The fastest celebrity contestants will qualify immediately for the show while the remaining brave competitors will have to do a live ski jump to secure their place. Talk about scary!

While the celebrities have already begun their gruelling training, top Olympic coaches including Winter Olympic skier Graham Bell, Winter Olympic Skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams and snowboarder Jenny Jones continue to put them through their paces.

The Jump will be presented by Davina McCall and will air on Channel 4 in early 2015. The full line-up of terrifying events will be revealed in January but will include some additions alongside the Bobsleigh, Slalom and the teeth chattering Ski Cross event.
