Who would have thought that two of our favourite reality stars are now besties?

Well, according to TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent, he's struck up a new friendship with Made in Chelsea's Mark-Francis Vandelli as the reality stars settle into their temporary new home in Austria for the new series of The Jump.

This year's series of The Jump sees a change to the original format, as for the first time, the celebs will live together for the duration of the competition.

They'll be staying in the luxury Austrian Mountain Schloss, and each week, host Davina McCall will be letting us in on the behind the scenes training and delivering gossip from the house.

Also, unlike previous years, The Jump will air weekly instead of nightly.

The 12 celebrities arrived in Austria for training over the weekend, and it'll be a lot of hard work, as they'll be put to the test on the slopes while being coached by Winter Olympic skier Graham Bell, current Winter Olympic World and European Skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold and British skier Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards.
