Louis Smith has told Paul Ross how excited he is to be taking part in The Jump. 

The champion gymnast, who won a silver medal at the London Olympics, has been confirmed to be taking part in the Channel 4 programme, which challenges celebrities to learn a variety of winter sports. 

When Paul Ross asked him about the risks of injury, Louis shrugged it off. 

He said: "I understand the risks of skiing, but there's just as much chance of injuring myself in a gymnastics gym. 

"That's some of the buzz, I love adrenaline. I love racing, I have that streak in me.

"This is right up my street."
