Goughie Ready For New TV Show

Friday January 3 2014


Darren Gough Darren Gough


FORMER England cricketer Darren Gough is limbering up for a series of winter sports as part of a new television show.

Goughie, 43, is one of 12 celebrities who will compete against each other in challenges such as speed skating, skeleton, bobsleigh, skier cross and slalom in Channel 4's 'The Jump'.

He flew to Austria alongside the likes of Olympic hero Sir Steve Redgrave, hairdresser Nicky Clarke and The Only Way Is Essex's Amy Childs.

But after skiing for two years, Darren is feeling 'reasonably prepared'.

He said: "It's not just skiing, it's speed skating, bobsleigh and all kinds of things and it'll be great to see what other sportsmen and women do and how they prepare.

"I’ve never been on ice skates in my life so that'll be interesting."

The Jump will air in early 2014 and will be presented by Davina McCall and Alex Brooker.

Snubs Barnsley? Barnsley is the best place in the world.

Lmaoooooooooooooooooo. Barnsley is stuck in the 70's along with the majority of Barnsley folk. All flat caps and whippets, and stll harping on about the miners strike. I suppose you worshiped scargill aswell.

Live in the real world Jayne, Barnsley is a laughing stock!

yes he does along with parky. hes also toying with the idea of becoming a conservative mp. and for me thats enough to class him as a scumbag, who doesnt really care about his roots. i wont be watching it.

Reply Posted by Fred on Wednesday January 8 2014 at 19:23
It's better than becoming a Labour mp. First it was Dickie Bird, now it's Goughie turn for some stick. Lots of bitter and nasty people in Barnsley.

I am surprised they don't live in Barnsley anymore. Why would they leave such a wonderful place? (sniggers)

Reply Posted by John on Monday January 6 2014 at 12:30
It seems that some who leave are very bitter and suffer delusions of grandeur.

@NW and where are you from? Let me guess, that wonderful city down the road?

Reply Posted by NW on Thursday January 9 2014 at 07:23
Im from Barnsley John, why would you think im from Sheffield? I take it you mean that City?

I haven't said anything that isn't true.

Barnsley Town centre is stuck in the 70's thanks to Labour BMBC - Yes.

Flat cap and whippets (Take a look around Cudworth and Grimethorpe for starters) - Yes

Barnsley folk still harp on about the miners strike 30 years on - Yes.

And finally, Barnsley is a laughing stock sadly. Mention the town Barnsley to anyone and you will see what I mean.

Sometimes you just have to admit it John. It might sound like im slagging the town off, im not it's fact.

Reply Posted by lauren on Thursday January 9 2014 at 07:41
You say your not slagging off Barnsley but thats exactly what your doing Barnsley is not that bad compared to other places no matter were you live there's alway shitty parts to a town and to be honest it's the people who live in these areas that give it a bad name by not looking after there area I live by a college I regularly go out with my 2 kids and pick up all the litter that college kids have chucked on the floor I do my part to try to keep things clean instead of slatin the place get involved in trying to make it better place to live in for our children so they have a nicer environment to live in when they are older

Reply Posted by John on Thursday January 9 2014 at 10:13
It's not "fact" at all, it might be your opinion but it's certainly not fact.
