News of Brian joining the show was revealed by our colleagues over at Digital Spy, but Channel 4 only confirm names in the official line-up nearer to the transmission date.

The second series of The Jump, which was presented by Davina McCall, was won by former TOWIE star Joey Essex.

In April, it was revealed that the show would return for a third series after the second was a ratings hit.

Channel 4's head of factual entertainment, Liam Humphreys, said at the time: "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."

The first series was won by X Factor star Joe McElderry.
