Davina McCall talks The Jump and her Sport Relief 2014 challenge

She's a one woman presenting machine, that Davina McCall and it seems she hasn't been off our tellybox since she fronted Streetmate 15 years ago.

From Big Brother to Million Pound Drop and The Biggest Loser, there seemingly isn't anything this woman can't do!

And now she's landed another primetime show - The Jump.

Today she joined Phil and Holly on the This Morning couch to talk about it.

Now, The Jump - what is that all about then?

The celebrity challenge show sees 12 famous faces take to the slopes to attempt some of the most dangerous winter sports there are.

Davina explained: "They have been in training since November – some of them literally learning how to ski.

"Some have no skiing experience whatsoever but they’ve got gumption. What I love is that they’ve all got the 'eye of the tiger.'

"They have to ski cross – it is absolutely crazy - as well as speed skating and bobsleighing."

The show, which will feature Eddie the Eagle as a judge, kicks off on Sunday (January 26) on Channel 4.

She said: "Doesn’t it just make you appreciate how utterly difficult the winter Olympics sports are?

"We will all be looking at it in a different light."

Davina will also be looking at Sport Relief in a different light after signing up for her biggest challenge yet.

She said: "I didn’t even contemplate it when they asked me - when Sport Relief asks me to do something I just say: 'Yes, I’ll do it.'

"It is seven days of endurance – I’ve got to get myself from Edinburgh to London.

"Running, swimming, mountain climbing, trekking, fell running and cycling. I am genuinely terrified."
