Award winning comedian, Marcus Brigstocke, is joining the celebrity line up in the new Channel 4 series, The Jump. Competing in challenging winter sports, Marcus will join fellow corporate favourites, multi Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave and Eddie the Eagle Edwards who will be training them and other celebrities to compete.


Marcus, already an accomplished snowboarder, founded the Altitude Festival together with fellow comedian, Andrew Maxwell - a comedy and music festival in the ski resport of Meribel in the French Alps.  Marcus is a perfect choice for cabaret or comedy hosting.


Legendary Winter Olympian, Eddie Edwards will coach the celebrities to face a live ski jump to stay in the competition.  Eddie is an inspiring motivational speaker focussing on his Olympic journey in a fun and upbeat style.


The Jump will be screened on Channel 4 for nine nights in February 2014 and will be presented by Davina McCall and Alex Brooker.
