Episode 7 of 12

Duration: 1 hour

Hell has frozen over! Wrap up warm, because Richard Hammond and co-host Amanda Byram are back with another frosty episode of Winter Wipeout.

Twenty brave Brits - including a bollard salesman, a farmer and a comedian - have volunteered for an expedition to the arctic wastelands of Argentina. There they must tackle the most absurd obstacle course on the planet in a bid to return home more than a few pounds richer.

The twelve fastest contestants then must face the terrifying ordeal that is Ski Lift. Luckily, or not so luckily, the five contestants left standing on Ski Lift qualify for the next round, Winter Blunderland. They then discover the meaning of centrifugal force on the Winter Wizzy as they are spun at the speed of light (almost) and then have to complete the insane set of blockades ahead of them in order to qualify for the Winter Wipeout Zone.

There is only one £10,000 cheque to be claimed and it is served over ice - the icy challenge that is the Wipeout Zone. The fastest on the final obstacle course hobbles home, exhausted but a champion nonetheless.

Dig out your mittens and let the icy challenge commence.
