TOWIE’s James ‘Arg’ Argent joins The Jump

The reality star is the latest celebrity to head for the slopes in the new series of Channel 4's winter sport reality show


James ‘Arg’ Argent is the latest celebrity to be revealed for the new series of The Jump.


Confirming that he has joined Channel 4’s winter sport reality show, The Only Way is Essex star tweeted that his time on the slopes would be “tough” but “great entertainment.”

The reality star will be joining Westlife’s Brian McFadden, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, Olympic sprinter Linford Christie, swimmer Becky Adlington, gymnast Beth Tweddle and Made in Chelsea star Mark-Francis Vandelli.

Argent has big (ski) boots to fill given that fellow TOWIE cast member Joey Essex was crowned the 2015 champion.

The new series of the Channel 4 show will have a ‘reality’ element in 2016, with all the celebrities living together under one roof as well as competing with each other on the slopes.


The Jump is back on Channel 4 in the new year.
