Ola Jordan

Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Ola Jordan leads the celebs for the second series of Channel 4’s winter sports show The Jump.

The Strictly beauty will swap the ballroom for the outdoors and she will be joined by 15 other stars.

The eight men participating are ex-England Rugby captain Mike Tindall, Jack Ass star Steve-O, JLS singer JB Gill, Paralympian Jon-Allan Butterworth, dancer Louie Spence, Gogglebox star Dom Parker, TV & radio presenter and former England cricketer Phil Tufnell and TV personality Joey Essex.

The seven women hitting the slopes alongside Ola will be philanthropist Heather Mills, wife of the Speaker of the House of Commons Sally Bercow, ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, pop star Stacey Solomon, ballroom dancer Ola Jordan, socialite Lady Victoria Hervey, Heptathlete Louise Hazel and Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson.

All of the celebrities have already started their training ahead of the series launch in early 2015. They will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of series one winner Joe McElderry by claiming glory.

The celebs will be training with legendary Winter Olympian Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards. They will also be put through their paces by a team of top coaches including Winter Olympic skier Graham Bell, Winter Olympic Skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams and snowboarder Jenny Jones.

The series will kick off with the Jump In. The competitors will go head-to-head in the Skeleton, reaching speeds of up to 60mph, with the fastest men and women qualifying directly for the show. The slowest celebrities will have to take on a live ski jump to secure their place, with those who jump the shortest distances joining The Subs Bench.

Davina McCall returns to present the show and the full line-up of events will be revealed in January.
