The Jump 2017's Amy Willerton wants to become the first ever woman to win the series.

Alongside Amy, the stars who have signed up for the series of The Jump 2017 this year are Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, TOWIE's Lydia Bright, model Caprice Bourret and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith.

More celebs on The Jump this year are rugby player Gareth Thomas and Paralympic medallist Kadeena Cox and retired pro cyclist Bradley Wiggins.

Rounding off the current cast are footie player Robbie Fowler, Olympic taekwondo champ Jade Jones, rugby player Jason Robinson and Camilla Parker Bowles’ niece Emma Parker Bowles.

In every series so far it's been a man who has triumphed but Amy is keen for that streak to end this winter.

Th model told Reveal magazine she was determined to triumph but admitted she faced stiff competition from Olympian Louis Smith, the current favourite to win.

Amy said: "I'm very competitive. I was really eating myself after the first race because I know if I'd had my mind more focused, I could have won it.

"[Louis]'s just so good at everything! He has the focus of a sportsman and the physical skill, so he's a double threat. I need him to take a really good tumble!"

Meanwhile, as for the prospect of ending up injured, Amy said: "Every time a negative thought comes into my head, I have to remind myself it's just a thought, it hasn't happened yet."

The Jump 2017 continues Sunday night on Channel 4.
