Wiggins for high jump on ski show

Winner winner Bradley most decorated Olympian

Rower Sir Steve Redgrave, gymnast Beth Tweddle and swimmer Rebecca Adlington were forced to pull out of the competition due to injuries.

But the five-time Olympic champion, who became Britain's first Tour de France champion in 2012, is a seasoned skier and says he is looking forward to the challenge of learning how to ski jump.

Speaking to PA ahead of the show's launch, the 36-year-old revealed skiing was a "big passion".

The Tour de France victor and eight-time Olympic medallist announced he was retiring after 15 years of competitive cycling and now has a new very unsafe challenge to face. "Major retiring Olympians such as Sir Steve Redgrave have also trod this path".

"I have been lucky enough to live a dream and fulfil my childhood aspiration of making a living and a career out of the sport I fell in love with at the age of 12", Wiggins wrote.

"Just don't call me a celebrity".

Gareth Thomas - Welsh rugby worldwide player.

Robbie Fowler - England worldwide footballer.

Jade Jones - Olympic Taekwondo champion.

The start date for the next series is yet to be confirmed by Channel 4.
