Broadcast live from a mountainside in Europe, the show will take place over ten nights in early 2014.

McCall said: "The Jump is going to be amazing - the scenery, the challenge and the sheer grit needed to compete will make it gripping viewing!"

The famous faces taking part in the series are expected to be announced soon.

Contestants will be trained by expert coaches and Olympians for the challenges, which include skiing, bobsleigh, skeleton, slalom and ski jumping.

Earlier this year, McCall ruled out ever appearing in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, telling Digital Spy that she "physically could not do" the ITV reality show.
