Speaking on ‘This Morning’ about the current calls for the show to be axed, Ola admitted that she feels she should never have taken part.

"I love the show but it was probably too quick for me. I shouldn't have signed up because I'm a dancer and my legs are important,” she told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

“My leg is still not 100 per cent. It's my stupidity, I signed up for a show I shouldn't have."

However, Ola, who eventually made a triumphant return to ‘Strictly’ before quitting last year, defended the show from the recent controversy.

"It is an incredibly dangerous sport. My accident could have happened on holiday though if I’d gone skiing for four days,” she said.

“You sign up to a dangerous show and the injury was my fault, no one pushed me to do it."

'The Jump' has been plagued by injuries this year

Rebecca Adlington, Tina Hobley, Beth Tweddle and Mark-Francis Vandelli have all been forced to quit the show this year, following injury.

Olympic gymnast Beth is currently in hospital recovering from neck surgery, following her horror fall during training for the latest live show.

Channel 4 have since ordered an urgent safety review of the show, while bookies have slashed the odds on the show being axed.
