Channel 4’s winter reality show The Jump starts tonight and Joe McElderry and Donal MacIntyre are in Austria as standby competitors.
2009’s X Factor champ McElderry and investigative journalist MacIntyre have been training alongside the other competing celebrities and will step in if needed.
And by ‘if needed’ this could mean a whole host of things. Someone could be injured or perhaps decide they are far too frightened to take part. Having visited the jump myself, I can safely say I’d be in the latter category.
Joe McElderry seems to be quite enjoying himself. Rather than tweeting messages of sheer terror, he shared the rather chirpy message that he’d just bumped into competing star Amy Childs. And posted a happy snap of himself after falling down the ice run.
