Olympic skier hopes show will return
Published 07/02/14



GRAHAM BELL says he hoped TV reality show The Jump will return.

The former Great Britain skier, of New Street, Henley, was a performance director on the Channel 4 show, which finished on Monday after eight episodes.

Each night, celebrities including Sir Steve Redgrave competed in winter sports including the skeleton, bobsleigh, speed skating, ski-cross and slalom.

The winner was X Factors Joe McElderry, who beat journalist Donal MacIntyre in the jump finale.

Sir Steve, who is vice-chairman of Henley Royal Regatta, was in the final four but had to pull out after being left in agony during training for the ski cross.

Bell, 48, said: Some of the celebrities were complete novices so I was quite happy with what we were able to achieve.

The show was a fun watch from all accounts and Im happy with the exposure it gave to the sports. It could happen again next year if they can get anyone to sign up for it.

Bell, who also presents the BBCs Ski Sunday, has now travelled to Sochi in Russia to commentate on the winter Olympics.

He said: It should be amazing and two weeks of really good competition.
