Lydia Bright is worried Arg will break bones on The Jump

Lydia Bright is concerned her boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent will "break some bones" when he competes on 'The Jump'.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star can't wait to see her beau take part in the winter sports show but she's terrified he'll injure himself because he's never hit the ski slopes before.

She explained to OK! Online: "We're a little bit nervous, because a lot of the contestants going on there are super-fit and Arg is probably the underdog, so let's just hope he doesn't break any bones!

"He might just shock us all. He's never skied before. The other day, he was training and got a really bad cramp in his leg and had to finish early. I hope James puts his heart and soul into it. He might even be a natural."

And Lydia's mother Debbie Douglas is so convinced Arg, who recently lost three stone in weight, is in with a chance of winning the show that she's prepared to put money on it.

She said: "Maybe we should put a bet on it, because it's probably a million to one for him to win at the minute. We could win a lot of money! He'll be pure entertainment for 'The Jump', and we all need a bit of entertaining."

However, the reality TV star will have to fight off stiff competition from Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington and gymnast Beth Tweddle if he wants to make to the final.

'The Jump' will return to screens across the nation later this month on Channel 4, as a string of celebrities try their hand at skeleton, bobsleigh, speed skating and giant slalom.
