The Jump may have a track record when it comes to celebrities injuring themselves, but that hasn't put Spencer Matthews off from signing up for the show.

Former Made In Chelsea star Spencer has been confirmed as one of the celebs taking part in The Jump's next series, and when quizzed about the possible injuries that could be heading his way, Spencer wasn't fazed.

He said: "It makes it more exciting!"

Eek.

Speaking about his upcoming debut on the Channel 4 winter sports show during an appearance on This Morning, Spencer told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "I think a bit of risk is always good."

"It makes it more exciting," Spencer insisted. "If you hurt yourself, you hurt yourself. Get up and carry on. I very much enjoy competitive sport. There's always a risk of injury, we'll just have to see."


While Spencer may be no stranger to the slopes (he has snow boarded all his life), he is only just learning how to ski. Spenny was seen practicing during a recent trip to the Italian Alps.

And he seemed to be enjoying himself while there! Spencer took to Instagram with a photo of himself all geared up in Cervinia. He told fans: "#Cervinia #GoodTimes."

Along with Spencer, model Caprice Bourret, Dancing On Ice star Gareth Thomas and retired rugby ace Jason Robinson will be taking on The Jump when it returns next year.

Davina McCall will also be back as host.

Last series of The Jump was plagued by injury with a whopping seven celebrities forced to exit the show after falling. Beth Tweddle was forced to have surgery on her neck after her fall, prompting a backlash on social media over the show.

In a statement, Channel 4 responded: "The Jump is now in its third series and, since launch, 46 celebrities have taken part successfully.

"Though it is a new course the events have been designed to be no more difficult than in previous years and all contributors have undertaken a rigorous training programme to prepare them for the show.

"All winter sports carry some element of risk, but in light of the number of injuries this year, Channel 4 has asked the producers to review safety procedures again to further reduce the prospect of accident."
