The Jump 2017 Final: When it's on and everything you need to know about the celebrities competing

The mountain has claimed its fair share of victims this year, as has the eponymous event the show is named for.

And with the fourth series of The Jump drawing to an end this weekend, there really can be only one King/Queen of the mountain.

But who exactly are the final few celebrities who’ve managed to avoid catastrophic injury and carve their way through the piste to the finishing line?

Previous years have seen three men walk away with the Golden Cowbell, with Joe McElderry, Joey Essex and Ben Cohen all managing to battle their way down the mountain to glory – could this year be the year of the shake-up?

So, who are the finalists?

Those ‘lucky’ enough to have staved off broken limbs and fractured bones this year include two Olympians and three reality stars amongst others.

Louis, 27, is the firm favourite to win this year’s series, having show natural aptitude for many of the extreme winter sports.

He’s no stranger to delivering the good when under pressure either, as the gymnast has walked away with two bronze medals and two silver medals during three Olympics.

He’s even had success in another hit TV competition, walking away with the Strictly Come Dancing glitterball trophy in 2012.

The former Made In Chelsea bad boy, 28, has battled back from dislocating his shoulder and has continued to be a real contender on the slopes.

Having left the safe confines of W10 for good in 2015, finishing a 10 series tenure as the Casanova and bad boy of E4’s fan-favourite reality show.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, he headed into the outback jungle for I’m A Celebrity the same year, but had to withdraw after just two days as he admitted to show bosses that he was taking a steroid-based medication.

Having got himself back on the straight-and-narrow, Spencer competed in a number of gruelling marathons and sporting challenges in 2016 for charity – could he possibly add a cowbell to his medal haul?

One of the driving forces behind England’s memorbale Rugby World Cup win in 2003, the former winger and full-back, 42, knows all about driving through the competition and taking your chances.

He’s bounced back from some disappointing early events, which saw him struggle to find his feet on the ice and snow.

Originally heading to the Austrian Alps as a secondary contestant, the 24-year-old model soon found herself slipping into her lycra jumpsuit as Vogue Williams pulled out of the show at the start of February after damaging her knee.

The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! (2013) beauty has proven she can adapt to nearly any event on the show.

But will the former Miss Universe Great Britain be able to stand the tests thrown her way in the show’s final?

Following in the ski tracks of her ex-boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Argent, the former TOWIE star, 27, left her plush pad in Essex and headed for the icy climes of Innsbruck.

She was originally eliminated from the show in the semi-final, but following the departure of Gareth Thomas she is now back in the running.

The 26-year-old Paralympian managed to scoop three medal – one gold, one silver, and one bronze – at Rio 2016, so its an understatement to say she’s a fierce competitor.

Having shown no fear and taken to the sloped with relative ease in a number of events, the fiery Yorkshire sporting star has been one to watch throughout the series.

The niece of the Duchess of Cornwall and daughter of Richard Parker Bowels and Camilla Younger has surprised even herself by fighting her way through from an unsteady start to the final.

The journalist, 42, is more used to the fast lane with her work for Top Gear Magazine and Tatler, but she has proven to be quite resilient when it comes to the rough and tumble nature of life on the ski slopes.

Who didn’t make it off the mountain in one-piece?

While the contest hasn’t accrued a hospital list anywhere near the likes of the infamous third series, there have been some celebs who have had to withdraw this year.

The Irish model and DJ – previously married Brian McFadden – had to pull out of the show before the competition even aired.

The 31-year-old model had been making headlines thanks to her cosy friendship with Spencer until disaster struck and she suffered a knee-injury causing her to pull out of the show.

Despite smashing his way through the semi-final, the former Welsh rugby star, 42, quit the show just days before the final – gifting Lydia his place in the final line-up.
