The Jump 2015: Louise Thompson more worried about embarrassment than injuries

The Jump Series 2 - (Louise Thompson)

The Jump 2015 contestant Louise Thompson has confessed she fears embarrassment more than injuries.

The Made in Chelsea star will make her debut on the show tonight as the girls take on their first challenge.

This evening will Louise battle female rivals Ashley Roberts, Chloe Madeley, Heather Mills, Jodie Kidd, Lady Victoria Hervey, Louise Hazel, Louise Thompson and Stacey Solomon in the nerve-shredding skeleton in order to stay in the competition.

Those who log the worst results will have to take part in the dreaded live Ski Jump at the end of the show,

Speaking ahead of the series, Louise said: "I can be quite competitive, and I really don't want to come last. But I don't think I'm going to be the worst.

"My main fear is all the live stuff, though. The Jump, with everyone cheering you on. It's the embarrassment I'm worried about, the idea of so many people seeing it."

She explained: "I don't mind going down black runs, I don't mind going over jumps, I don't mind falling over. It's just the fact that it's televised that's petrifying."

Louise confessed that she had 'no idea' what she had let herself in for when singing up for the new series.

She said: "It's really difficult to know, because I don't think you can fathom the scale of the jump. You can't tell how high it is on TV. I think, with practice, I'll be fine.

"But I've never done anything like that before. How do you stop at the bottom? I'll probably just fall over. The whole thing's going to be quite comical. I've just got to try and not take it too seriously."

The Jump starts on Sunday tonight at 7PM on Channel 4.
