Davina McCall teases 'amazing lineup' for The Jump

Davina McCall says the celebrities who take part in 'The Jump' are the "bravest people on television".

The 49-year-old television personality is excited for the Channel 4 winter sports show to return and has teased the "amazing lineup" they have secured.

She said: "It is a crazy, crazy show to be part of and our contestants are just the coolest, bravest people on television. Not because we put them at any risk, but you know, it's just being in the snow. Normally you're in the snow for a week and you have a certain amount of risk, but if you're in the snow for eight to ten weeks and you're on the slopes every day doing these crazy events ... these people are amazing.

"People that love it, love it. So I'm really pleased they do. We've got an amazing lineup - an unbelievable lineup. And no, I can't tell you, but we have quite a few people set. They're crazy amazing people - I'm so excited."

And Davina - who hosts the show - particularly likes seeing sportsmen and women sign up for the competition because they are "supple, competitive and strong".

She added to Digital Spy: "My favourite people to get on there are sportspeople because they are so supple and good and great at learning things and competitive and strong.

"I love getting a really good range of sportspeople on there so hopefully ... I can't say anything! I can't say any more. I'm going to shut up because I'm going to give you something!"

Meanwhile, Davina previously admitted she would never compete on 'The Jump' herself.

Asked if she'd try any stunts they do on the show, she said: "No way! They won't let me ski - they won't let me do anything. The only activity I'm allowed to do when I'm filming is snowshoeing, where you put tennis rackets on your feet and just walk."
