Davina McCall has revealed she has no interest in entering the Big Brother house, because her husband wouldn't want her to be on cameras constantly.

Despite hosting the reality TV show for 10 years, the presenter admitted she wouldn't want to be a housemate herself.

"I wouldn't, because you are on view 24/7 and Matthew (Robertson, her husband) said he doesn't want to share that side of me," she told Heat.

"It's hard enough for him being married to someone well known. It's a difficult, weird dynamic but we've got it worked out absolutely perfectly now and he's incredible about it.

"But that would be one step too far. He doesn't want other people to see me sleeping, because that's just for him."

Davina is hosting Channel 4's new skiing show The Jump, which will see 12 celebrities such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Amy Childs, Kimberly Wyatt and Sinitta competing to win.

"(I'm excited about) Sir Steve Redgrave. He's got that Olympian spirit and he's going to want to win, which I love," she said.

"If anybody knows about pressure and performance, he is the man. He's like the Don Corleone of getting into the right headspace."

She added: "Kimberly Wyatt is also very determined, as is Anthea Turner. Amy Childs has been training a lot and Henry Conway, the 'it boy', will be brilliant."

The Jump premieres on Channel 4 on January 26.
