Anyone else watching The Jump on Channel 4? How do they manage to get insurance for the celebs (even D-list celebs like these) to do such potentially dangerous stuff?

Didn't see it but it never ceases to amaze me what fading celebrities will do to stay in the public eye. Which ones are doing it?

Anthea Turner, Sinitta, Sir Steve Redgrave, Nicky Clarke (already eliminated), Henry Conway, Darren Gough, Marcus Brigstocke - can't remember the rest.

I only saw a couple of minutes of a preview, and I was shocked at how terrifyingly high the jump is.
Not something I'd want to attempt in a million years. shock

The stuff of nightmares. Don't know who the last three are, but the first two are good guys, so I take back what I said abut 'celebs'. Are they doing it for charity?
