Rebecca Adlington won't miss daughter 'too much' when she's on The Jump

Rebecca Adlington doesn't think she'll miss her baby daughter "too much" when she's competing on 'The Jump'.

The 26-year-old swimmer is set to jet off to Austria later this month to take part in the winter sports show but she's not worried about being away from seven-month-old Summer because she knows she's in good hands and will visit her.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "Summer is seven months old now and has her own little personality which is lovely to see. She will come out a few times with my husband Harry and my parents, depending on how long I am out there for, so hopefully I won't miss her too much."

Meanwhile, as she gears up to slip on her thermals and hit the ski slopes, Rebecca is adamant she's not nervous yet, despite the fact she's never manoeuvred on snow before.

She explained: "I'm not scared yet, that might change once I'm out there training and know what I'm in for! I am a complete novice and have never skied before so I am really looking forward to learning a new skill, I am aware that it can be dangerous but I have great confidence in the team."

Rebecca Adlington is the new face of Slazenger Swim and will be working with the brand to create a pinnacle swim fitness range, which will launch later this year.
