Catch Up


This sounds like all nine Circles of Hell, only on skis. A typically lumpy brew of reality-show participants, TV presenters and sundry dancers on the edge of show business learn winter sports from scratch. Then they are sent off to compete against each other.

You’re probably already dying on the inside just reading this, but before you abandon all hope, you might enjoy a few cruel laughs at the expense of Amy Childs (from The Only Way is Essex) who, on approaching Innsbruck, announces apropos of nothing: “It don’t remind me of Marbella, no way.” Or possibly “party promoter” Henry Conway, hairdresser Nicky Clarke, pop singer Ritchie Neville and TV presenter Melinda Messenger. They’ll be coached by Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards, among others.


In the run-up to Sochi 2014, 12 celebrities battle it out in some of the most challenging winter sport disciplines, including speed skating and giant slalom. Taking to the slopes in Austria are Steve Redgrave, Ritchie Neville, Darren Gough, Sinitta, Marcus Brigstocke, Amy Childs, Nicky Clarke, Kimberly Wyatt, Henry Conway, Anthea Turner, Laura Hamilton and Melinda Messenger, and each night two of them face a live ski jump to keep their place in the competition, coached by Eddie `the Eagle' Edwards. In the first edition, the men take on the giant slalom. Guiding them through the twists and turns of this key Alpine event is Winter Olympian Graham Bell. Presented by Davina McCall and Alex Brooker.
