ABC has announced that it is to move its gameshow Wipeout to a regular winter slot next year.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that the series will return in January 2011 with what is being described as a "winter wonderland" obstacle course.

The news comes after Wipeout was renewed for a fourth season earlier this year, having become one of producer Endemol's most successful programmes.

ABC has ordered a run of eight episodes as an extension of the show's fourth season.

Wipeout is currently presented by John Henson and John Anderson along with co-host Jill Wagner.

Following the show's success in America, the BBC launched a UK version last year fronted by Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram.
