Joey Essex has been seriously living it up while training for The Jump, so much so that his co-stars have had to put him to bed after one too many!

Former TOWIE star is taking part in this year's series of the C4 reality show but has found time to party in between his practice sessions in Austria.

Fellow Jump 2015 contestant, heptathlete Louise Hazel, has revealed that Joey has even needed tucking more than once. Oops!

Louise told The Mirror: "There has been a lot of going out and drinking. I'm trying to contain it to the weekend but others have had to be put to bed during a few nights out. Joey often needs tucking in - probably most nights of the week."

Blimey, talk about going on the piste!

This Sunday (1 February), the new series of The Jump kicks off and the show has a jam-packed celebrity lineup. Joining Joey in the snow is Made In Chelsea's Louise Thompson, former JLS star JB Gill and singer Stacey Solomon to name a few.

Two of the show's contestants have, however, already been forced to pull out due to injury.

In December, Strictly Come Dancing's Ola Jordan suffered a knee injury in training and has since undergone surgery.

Meanwhile, Sally Bercow, wife of Commons Speaker John Bercow, has also pulled out of The Jump after breaking two ribs and Jodie Kidd has been brought in to replace her.
