WORK:
The Jump
"Contestants"
Channel 4 borrow the Ski Sunday theme tune in this trail for The Jump. A vintage-style commentator introduces four celebs eager to keep their limbs intact: Sir Bradley Wiggins, Caprice, Gareth Thomas, and Robbie Fowler. Good delivery of a tongue-in-cheek script, while there's a cheeky nod to Robbie Fowler's famous goal celebration referencing a different kind of white powder.
