Channel 4 reality show The Jump features a host of celebrities competing in winter sports including ski jumping, skiing and bobsleighing.

Although all the celebrities involved receiving coaching and mentoring from winter sport, the show has been heavily criticised for the number, and severity, of injuries received by participants.

Brian McFadden, who competed on the third season, suffered from broken ribs. Fellow season three contestants, gymnast Beth Tweddle and swimmer Rebecca Adlington, had to withdraw from the show with broken vertebrae and a dislocated shoulder respectively.

In total seven contestants withdrew from season three of the show, including former Holby City actress Tina Hobley, who suffered a serious fall early in the show's run. She recently told Hello magazine about the impact her injuries have had on her life. "My elbow came out of its socket and my arm was broken in two places; I tore my rotator cuff in my shoulder – a common rugby injury which has ended careers – and I had a full rupture of my ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] in the knee."

As a result of her injuries she was left unable to drive, or even dress herself. She even missed out on a role in ITV drama Broadchurch, as she was in a cast when the audition came up. She revealed "My daughter has had to help me put my clothes on. And for months at a time I haven't been able to take the kids to school, run errands, or do any of the things I love like yoga, cycling or walking any kind of distance,"

Despite these incidents Channel 4 has announced plans to bring the show back for a fourth series.
