Epic celebrity winter sports show The Jump returns to Channel 4 on Sunday 5th February at 7:30pm. Broadcast live from Jump Mountain in Austria the first show will see the fourteen daring famous faces compete in Parallel Ski races with the slowest down the mountain taking on The Jump eliminator to keep their place in the competition.
Taking part this year will be Britain’s most decorated Olympian and Tour De France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins, Welsh Rugby International player Gareth Thomas, World Cup Winner and England Rugby Captain Jason Robinson OBE, England International footballer Robbie Fowler, former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, comedian Mark Dolan and double silver Olympic medal winning gymnast Louis Smith MBE.

After weeks of being put through their paces in training by a team of world class experts and trainers, the competition at Jump Mountain is set to be fierce as they all have their eyes on the prize – the coveted Cowbell Trophy – currently in the hands of The Jump 2016 champion, Rugby ace Ben Cohen.
The aim of the game is to dodge around the gates as quickly as possible, and complete the mountain course in the shortest time. But in an exciting twist, the competitors go head-to-head on parallel courses, so anyone falling behind will know all the ground they need to make up. The losers of each race will then face The Jump live and one celebrity will be eliminated.
Davina McCall will be back at the helm of every action packed episode, with old blue eyes Graham Bell and legendary sports commentator Barry Davies in the commentary box analysing every event.
