Chloe Madeley Jumps into TV role

Chloe Madeley has been tipped for success after she was revealed to be replacing Ola Jordan in The Jump.

The Strictly Come Dancing professional had to pull out of the Channel 4 winter sports-themed reality show after injuring her leg during training and has just undergone surgery.

The Jump bosses have confirmed reality TV star Chloe - daughter of Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan - is to replace Ola in the line-up, and bookmakers William Hill have given her strong starting odds of 20/1 to win in the challenging competition.

"Chloe is a fitness fanatic, so she should do well but there are a number of sporty contestants any of whom could win this," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Jackass star Steve-O is the stand out favourite to claim victory with odds of 7/2, with paralympian Jon-Allan Butterworth second favourite and retired rugby player and husband of Zara Phillips, Mike Tindall close behind.

Heather Mills, the ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney, is also thought to have a good chance as she is an experienced skier and has competed for Britain, winning a World Cup silver medal.

Also in the line-up for this year are former JLS star JB Gill, choreographer and ex-Dancing On Ice judge Louie Spence, Sally Bercow, the wife of the House of Commons Speaker and Gogglebox tippler Dom Parker.

In addition, the show features a string of veterans from ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, including former cricketer Phil Tufnell, one-time Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Joey Essex and singer Stacey Solomon.

Completing the contestants for 2015 are socialite Lady Victoria Hervey, heptathlete Louise Hazel and Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson.
