The Jump 2017: Big Brother's Josie Gibson becomes the first celeb to take a tumble


Big Brother winner Josie Gibson has become the first celeb to take a tumble in training on The Jump 2017.

The former Big Brother housemate appeared in the final Channel 4 series and All Star spin-off Ultimate Big Brother back in 2010.


She's now signed up to series four of The Jump but took a fall in training this New Year.

The Sun reports that Josie had a nasty fall onto her back while training indoors in London before flying to Austria for the show.

There didn't appear to be any lasting damage though with Josie eventually getting back onto her feet with the help of the show's team.

"Josie has been training hard for the show and really throwing herself into it," a source spilled to the tabloid. “She’s been having ski lessons to try and make sure she doesn’t embarrass herself on the slopes and she’s really taken to it.”


Josie and the rest of The Jump 2017 cast may be some of the bravest names in showbiz after the last series proved a disaster, with seven celebs withdrawing due to injury.

Despite the nightmare, C4 announced a fourth series of The Jump in July, following a "thorough review of safety standards".

Alongside Josie, other names who have signed up for The Jump 2017 cats include TOWIE's Lydia Bright, Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews and model Vogue Williams.

They join footballer Robbie Fowler, Olympians Louis Smith and Jade Jones, X Factor singer Jake Quickenden and model Caprice Bourret on the cast of this year's show.


Completing the line up are former England rugby captain Jason Robinson OBE, comic Mark Dolan and Welsh rugby international Gareth Thomas.

The Jump 2017 will air on Channel 4 later this year.
