Big Brother stars Josie Gibson and Hughie Maughan

Former Big Brother UK housemates Josie Gibson and Hughie Maughan have both signed up to appear on major reality TV shows in the New Year.

Josie, the winner of Big Brother’s final Channel 4 series in 2010, will be reunited with its former presenter Davina McCall when she bravely competes on the new series of The Jump.

The C4 winter sports competition will return in late January or early February, despite attracting huge controversy during its last run, when seven of its contestants were forced to withdraw due to injury.

“I am unbelievably excited to be joining the fourth series of The Jump,” Josie commented to Digital Spy. “When Channel 4 asked me to take part, I jumped at the opportunity (pun intended!!).

“It’s perfect for me as the show combines some of my favourite things; fitness, competition and new experiences. Bring it on!!”

Meanwhile, Hughie is one of eleven contestants on Dancing With The Stars, the Republic of Ireland’s new version of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, which begins on Irish channel RTE One on Sunday 8th January.

Hughie, who finished as runner-up on Channel 5’s latest Big Brother earlier this year, said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of Dancing with the Stars.

“You never know, I could be the new Patrick Swayze or I could look as rubbish as a cat on ice skates. Either way I am going to bring the fun to the show.”
