Line-up for series two, which was won by Joey Essex.

The Jump, which is presented by Davina McCall, averaged at 2.3 million viewers across its entire run for the second series, which was won by former TOWIE star Joey Essex.

Channel 4's head of factual entertainment, Liam Humphreys, said: "With The Jump we've created a show that is a unique blend of daring live action, genuine sporting skill and some raucous après ski – it's the most frightening show on TV.

"It's a magical formula in which Joey Essex can legitimately beat Mike Tindall in a sporting arena. It is compelling viewing; the show wears its authentic Winter Olympics credentials lightly and keeps it's tongue planted firmly in its cheek."

Joey battled stiff competition to take the cowbell trophy as the 2015 champion with an impressive 17.5 meter skill jump. Who will have the courage and skills to steal his crown next year?!

The Jump first came onto our screens in 2014. The first series was won by X Factor star Joe McElderry.
