SPENCER Matthews, Vogue Williams, Lydia Bright, Louis Smith and co have proven they aren’t afraid to make fun of themselves, ahead of their debut on The Jump.

The Channel 4 winter sports competition is set to return next month and to get fans excited about the new series, a new trailer featuring this year’s lineup has been released. 

The celebrities can be seen donning their skintight ski gear and flying over the slopes, accompanied by Westlife’s Flying Without Wings. 

In the hilarious 50 second clip, former Made In Chelsea star Spencer and his co-stars seem pretty smug with themselves for conquering the mountain, but they’re quickly reminded that what they’re doing is “aerodynamically impossible.” 

Reality hits in and the celebrities crash back down to earth.

Is that a reminder that the contestants will be taking on some pretty difficult skills, that arguably could be deemed impossible, while competing on The Jump?

Or are they making light of concerns they are putting themselves at risk on the show? 

Either way, the celebrities were all good sports and proved they clearly don’t take themselves too seriously.

Last series, The Jump faced a backlash from fans after seven celebrities pulled out of the show after falling. 

Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle had to be rushed to hospital with her injuries and underwent major surgery on her neck. 

Despite calls from viewers to axe the show, they claimed it was ‘too dangerous’ to air, Channel 4 confirmed The Jump would return for 2017.

Host Davina McCall will be back too and she herself has said she is “amazed” celebrities still want to sign up to the show. 

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the 49-year-old said: “I was amazed because I didn’t think we’d be able to get people back on it. 

“But apparently people still want to do the show which is great. They’re amazing!”

She later added during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine that this year’s celebrities have undertaken a longer training process.

“We’ve actually got them out for a very long period before we star filming,” Davina explained. 

“We’re filming for two weeks non stop, instead of going live every week, so there is tonnes of training.

“They are out there for eight weeks, skiing all day, every day, it is full on.

“They are very brave, we’ve got some really good people.”

Joining Spencer, Vogue and Lydia on the slopes this time round are Jake Quickenden, model Caprice, rugby pros Gareth Thomas and Jason Robinson, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Louis Smith. 

Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones is also taking part, along with paralympic gold medalist Kadeena Cox, comedian Mark Dolan, Emma Parker-Bowles, footballer Robbie Fowler and former Big Brother star Josie Gibson. 

Josie has suffered a couple of falls already and was seen breaking down in tears to her instructor. 

She credited her co-stars for helping her through training, as the group have already appeared to form close bonds.

In fact, Spencer and Vogue have actually sparked romance rumours after being spotted getting very hands on with each other in a cosy Instagram snap. 

The Jump kicks off Sunday 5th February on Channel 5.
