The Jump 2016 will air weekly this year, ditching its original nightly format.

The first two series of the Channel 4 show had aired on consecutive nights in the one week, as celebs took on various winter sports.

But for the third run the show will now air its episodes weekly, giving the stars more time to train and recover between each discipline.

A total cast of twelve stars have been revealed who will be taking to the ski-slopes in Austria to appear in the 8 different winter sports.

Among the announced celebrity contestants are Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding and Westlife star Brian McFadden.

Also on The ump 2016 line up are TOWIE's James Arg Argent and Made In Chelsea's Mark Francis, together with no fewer than three Olympians: Swimmer Rebecca Adlington, gymnast Beth Tweddle and sprinter Linford Christie.

In another change to the format, the stars will be living together over the course of the competition for the first time rather then spending the week in a hotel.

The Jump 2016 start date hasn't been officially confirmed yet but is expected to be announced VERY soon!
