Line-Up for Series 2 of The Jump Announced

Love it or loathe it, last winter’s first series of ‘The Jump’ brought winter sports into living rooms across the UK in a way that only Ski Sunday had done before. Although it’s unlikely to have inspired you to do an actual ski jump, the show was credited with helping to raise the profile of winter sports during what was an Olympic year. It’s for that reason that we’re keen to see which ‘celebrities’ are in the line-up for series 2, and we’re excited about the new coach. Jenny Jones!

Limbering up to take The Jump Cowbell Trophy from series 1 winner Joe McElderry are…

Ex-England rugby captain and hubby to Zara Philips Mike Tindall, Jack Ass star Steve-O, JLS’s JB, paralympian Jon-Allan Butterworth, dancer Louie Spence, Gogglebox star Dom Parker, cricketer Phil Tufnell and the one and only ‘personality’ that is Joey Essex.

On the girls team…

Heather Mills (who comes with the introduction of ‘philanthropist’ by the production company), Speaker of the House of Commons Sally Bercow, ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Stacey Solomon off of the Iceland telly adverts, dancer Ola Jordan, Lady Victoria Hervey, heptathlete Louise Hazel and ‘reality star’ Louise Thompson from Made In Chelsea (it’s acceptable to pretend that you don’t know who she is. We just did.)

All 16 celebrities have already started their training programmes and during the series they’ll go head to head at 60mph in the Skeleton. As before, the slowest celebrities will take on a live ski jump during the show to secure their place in the next round. They’ll be under the watchful eye of Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards and coaches include Graham Bell, Amy Williams and (this is the bit that makes the whole show worth watching), the one and only Jenny Jones. Davina McCall is back to present, and the show airs in early 2015.
