Ben Cohen was crowned the winner of ‘The Jump’ on Sunday night, as the injury-ridden series came to a close.

The star, who was brought onto the show late to replace one of the many injured celebs, triumphed over former The Wanted star Tom Parker and actor Dean Cain in the grand final.

Ben faced stiff competition from Dean

After completing a series of three winter sport challenges, the finalists completed one last live jump - though for Tom it was also his first - and while the trio all managed respectable distances, Ben triumphed with 18.25 metres.

Sid Owen and Tamara Beckwith also competed in the last episode, but lost their places in the final after coming last in the first two challenges.

This series of ‘The Jump’ has hit headlines on numerous occasions, thanks to the number of participants who have been left with injuries and in need of medical attention.

Heather Mills and Sarah Harding both bowed out in the last two weeks of the show, while Beth Tweddle was previously airlifted to hospital after breaking two vertebrae.

The Olympic medal winner had surgery that saw bone from her hip used to repair the break.

Midway through the series, Channel 4 were asked to complete an emergency safety review and despite speculation that ‘The Jump’ won’t be returning to our screens, a spokesperson has remained insistent that the decision on its future has not yet been made.
