Famous, why? A former showjumper, model and TV presenter

Bio: Following her childhood showjumping career, Kidd modelled for the likes of Chloé, Chanel and Yves Saint Lauren, and has stints on Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity MasterChef under her belt. While she was a late entry into The Jump (replacing an injured Sally Bercow) she’s delighted at the “bonkers” opportunity to be taught by Olympians, including Skeleton pro Amy Williams. She would also “much rather” be part of the après ski competition with Phil Tufnell and Gogglebox’s Dom Parker.
