The Jump takes reality TV competitions to the next level by getting a mix of celebrities, TV personalities and Olympic athletes to master the art of skiing. Each week they compete to learn a new skill, including skeleton, bobsleigh, snowskates, ski cross - with the worst performing contestants made to battle it out on the giant slalom in a bid to stay in the competition. What could possibly go wrong?

Channel 4 confirmed the show will be taking a break in 2018, blaming the "huge amount of winter sports" on our screens at that time (i.e. the Winter Olympics). However many are suggesting the amount of injures the stars have sustained during the show's four-year run may also have something to do with it.
