The third series of ‘The Jump’ hasn’t even begun yet, but one star has already suffered their first injury.

Over the past two series, the winter sports-based reality show has become synonymous with its celebrity contestants becoming injured, with ‘TOWIE’ cast member James ‘Arg’ Argent the first of this year’s casualties.

His girlfriend and co-star Lydia Bright has revealed to Metro: “He’s injured himself already, he’s got a massive golf ball on his knee.

“I think he went into it thinking it would be fine and now he’s realised how hard it is, so hopefully now he’s bubble wrapped himself and he’ll be more cautious.”

Arg is one of 12 celebrities taking part in the new series of ‘The Jump’, which kicks off on Channel 4 in the coming weeks.

Also among the cast are pop singer Sarah Harding, ‘Superman’ actor Dean Cain and ‘Made In Chelsea’ favourite Mark-Francis Vandelli.

For the first time, the new series will air weekly, rather than nightly, with Davina McCall once again returning to host.

In another first, the 12 participants will also be sharing a house together during the training process.

Last year’s series saw not one but two of its stars pulling out of the show due to injuries accrued during training, with Ola Jordan and Sally Bercow being replaced by Jodie Kidd and Chloe Madeley.

Over the course of the series, ‘Gogglebox’ star Dominic Parker suffered a concussion, while eventual-winner Joey Essex also complained of injury.
