Terrifying training for The Jump!

Hello from Austria and the skeleton track!

I love most winter sports but I think I have actually found one that I don’t enjoy.  I am not sure if it’s the fact that physically I am not built for it or the fact I feel completely out of control, but lying on a tray and going down a toboggan track at a speed of 80-90kmph is totally insane and quite terrifying.  Amy Williams, the Olympic Gold medalist and our trainer. is fantastic and I have an enormous amount of respect for her.

I’m so exited that The Jump starts on Channel 4 at 8pm this Sunday, 26th January. I really can’t wait for you all to see it.  We have all been training so hard and I think it will be a great show.


I feel so lucky to be working with such a great group of people and I love chatting with Kimberly Wyatt about her wedding, which she is planning while taking part in this competition.  Having been there myself I know how stressful it can be organising a big wedding whilst working.


Kimberly is really sweet and has treated all the girls to some lovely bits from her make-up range Beautiful Movements.  It’s a lovely collection of mineral make-up that you can buy online and in Holland & Barratt.  It’s all cruelty free natural and natural and worth checking out at


This past weekend my husband Alex came to visit baby Rocco and myself in Austria.  I think Alex was surprised by how alert Rocco is and how much he has grown.  Rocco has finally started to sleep through the night and is such a smiley, happy baby. We hired a car and went on a little road trip to St Anton which was lovely. Hopefully Alex will get the chance to come back again when the show is on, but it will all be dependant on his work schedule.

That’s it from me for now.  Sorry my blog posts are a bit shorter at the moment but I have to get back to training.


I hope you can tune in on Sunday!

Until next time.
