Chloe Madeley is set to make her debut on the new series of The Jump this weekend - and her mum is "terrified" she will injure herself.

TV star Judy Finnigan and husband Richard Madeley will be in the crowd in Austria supporting their daughter on Sunday night, but they are concerned about potential accidents.

Fitness fan Chloe joined the lineup for The Jump late, as she was drafted in to replace Strictly Come Dancing's Ola Jordan who suffered a serious knee injury while training.

As a result, Chloe hasn't had as much time as her fellow contestants to learn the ropes in the snow - and Judy is worried.

Appearing on Loose Women today, Judy said: "She's never been on a pair of skis before in her life. She's a total novice. She's had just four weeks to train up. I'm terrified.

"We're going out to Austria on Sunday just to give her some moral support. As long as she gets back in one piece, that's all I want."

Chloe will be starring alongside the likes of Joey Essex, Louise Thompson and Louie Spence on the Channel 4 show, but Judy feels it is Heather Mills who her daughter should be worried about.

"Heather Mills is one of the contestants and she's a really skilled Paralympic skier," Judy added. "I think she might be the one to watch, her and Mike Tindall. Sorry, Chloe!"
