Amy Childs looked to be in her element today as she stepped on a ski resort in Austria in preparation for new winter sports reality show, The Jump.

The former TOWIE star posted a selfie on Twitter as she began filming a promo for the new Channel 4 show and appeared to taking it all in her stride, despite admitting her pre-show nerves to fans.

In the close up snap, Amy pulled off her famous pout as she kept a tight grip of her ski poles. Meanwhile, 80s songstress Sinitta, who is also taking part in the reality show, can be seen standing on the slopes behind in the picturesque resort.

Captioning the photo, Amy said: "Loved skiing today ..... Selfie."

She later added: "All the girls looking amazing in there SKI outfits ... Filming the promo and photoshoot today all in Austria #thejump xxx (sic)."

Amy, who will be competing against the likes of Sinitta, Kimberly Wyatt and Melinda Messenger, will be put through her paces for the new show, as she'll have to learn dangerous and challenging winter sporting disciplines.

After getting some well-wishes from fans on Twitter, Amy admitted that she was "very nervous" to be taking part in the competition. She later added: "Absolutely loving Austria .... All the gear but no idea!!! xxx #thejump."

Amy told fans last week that she would be heading to Austria for an entire month to get in some practice before the show kicks off later this month. The reality star also flew out to Austria a few weeks ago to get in some early training.
