Linford is a former Olympic and World 100 metre champion, but his career ended in controversy when he was given a two-year ban for taking performance-enhancing substances. Linford has always denied any wrongdoing.

Linford isn't the only person linked to the new series, as former Westlife star Brian McFadden has reportedly signed up for the show too.

The Jump is returning for a third series following a successful second series earlier this year.

Former TOWIE star Joey Essex won the second series, while former X Factor star Joe McElderry won the first.
