The Jump 2016 is set to kick off at the end of the month on Channel 4 for what will be its third series.

The start date for The Jump 2016 has now been officially confirmed, beginning on Sunday, January 31 at 7:30PM on Channel 4 with host Davina McCall.

The start date for The Jump 2016 isn't the only thing that's been revealed, there's also a slightly new format: For 2016, The Jump will air every week instead of nightly.

The Alpine skiing reality contest will again celebs practising sports such as skeleton, bobsleigh and snowboarding.

Those who fare worst in the events go head-to-head in the titular ski jump in a bid to avoid being eliminated.

And this year will see another change as reports suggest that contestants on the new series will be forced to LIVE TOGETHER.

Stars of previous series lived in hotels while taking each other on in a range of winter sports challenges in Innsbruck, Austria.

But the Radio Times claims bosses are now planning to make the famous faces shack up together on camera for the upcoming third run in the New Year.

The official line up of twelve celebrity contestants have also been confirmed, including Made In Chelsea's Mark Francis, Olympian Rebecca Adlington and Westlife star Brian McFadden.

They'll all be joined by Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, sprinter Linford Christie and TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent.
