Collier’s brand ambassador, Darren Gough, for The JumpChat
Cricket star, Strictly winner and brand ambassador of Collier’s Powerful Welsh Cheddar, Darren Gough, is joining 12 fellow celebrities, including Sir Steve Redgrade, Laura Hamilton, Melinda Messenger and Anthea Turner to face some of the most challenging and dangerous winter sports as they compete to become crowned champion of The Jump.
The Jump will hit TV screens on Sunday the 26th of January, the celebrities having partaken in much needed vigorous training these past few weeks and they’ll need is as they will participate in events such as the Skeleton, Giant Slalom and the Two Person Bobsleigh. Perhaps the biggest and most fearful of challenges is the Ski Jump. Each night the two competitors who performed the worst in the day’s event will face each other in ‘The Jump’. They’ll be given the option of three jumps – K15, K 24, or the K40 with the largest, the K40 taking them up to speeds of 50-60mph. Height, weight and general fitness will all affect how well the contestants fair.
Tackling such events is a hungry work and having ploughed through his regular stock of hand luggage Collier’s, we answered the cry for more by sending a shipment of Darren’s favourite cheddar out to Austria that was dually shared with his fellow competitors and tweeted by Laura Hamiltion. We are expecting a powerful performance all round and we wish Darren and all the celebrities luck in their exploits. I’m sure you will join us in supporting them.
‘The Jump’ starts on Channel 4 Sunday the 26th at 8pm
