Vogue Williams to join The Jump

Vogue Williams is set to take part in the forthcoming series of 'The Jump'.

The 30-year-old television presenter has agreed to swap her killer heels for a pair ski boots as she heads to the Austrian mountains in January for the winter sports show.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I'm thrilled to be taking part in 'The Jump' as it's a show I've wanted to do for years! I love winter sports, so I can't wait to put my ski boots on and hit the Austrian slopes. It's going to be so much fun and I'm looking forward to a bit of friendly competition with the other celebs!"

However, the blonde beauty will certainly have her work cut out as she will be up against previously-announced competitors England International footballer Robbie Fowler, England Rugby Captain Jason Robinson OBE and Spencer Matthews.

Vogue's signing comes just a year after her ex-husband Brian McFadden - who she was married to from 2012 until 2015 - took part in the competition but, despite his impressive skills on the ice, he was eliminated from the show before the grand final.

Although she loves winter sports, Vogue is no doubt riddled with nerves as last year's show was responsible for a number of celebrities experiencing life-changing injuries.

The last series saw gymnast Beth Tweddle break her back, 'Made in Chelsea' star Mark-Francis Vandelli fracture his ankle and Rebecca Adlington dislocate her shoulder.

The spike in injuries meant bosses were forced to revisit the risky format and discuss whether it was worth bringing it back for another series at the beginning of next year.

However, after bosses managed to persuade a good amount of stars to take part in the forthcoming series, producers were given the go-ahead to do another installment.
