Davina McCall has said The Jump 2017 line up is "unbelievable".

Rubbishing claims that the show was struggling to attract celebs, host Davina says the upcoming series has attracted some "crazy amazing people".

Over the past three series of The Jump many celebs have taken a tumble on the slopes but this year's latest run was particularly bad.

Beth Tweddle suffered the show's most serious injury to date, getting airlifted to hospital after hurting her back.

Alongside Beth, others who had to quit the show included Mark-Francis Vandelli who fractured his ankle, Tina Hobley who dislocated her elbow and broke her arm, Rebecca Adlington who dislocated her shoulder and Sarah Harding who injured her knee.

However none of that seems to have put stars off.

Raving about next winter's fourth run, Davina said: "It is a crazy, crazy show to be part of and our contestants are just the coolest, bravest people on television.

"Not because we put them at any risk, but you know, it's just being in the snow."

She explained:"Normally you're in the snow for a week and you have a certain amount of risk, but if you're in the snow for eight to ten weeks and you're on the slopes every day doing these crazy events... these people are amazing."

Talking to DigitalSpy, Davina teased The Jump 2017 line up of contestants: "People that love it, love it. So I'm really pleased they do.

"We've got an amazing lineup - an unbelievable lineup. And no, I can't tell you, but we have quite a few people set. They're crazy amazing people - I'm so excited."

The Jump 2017 is expected to start on TV in January or February on Channel 4.
