'The Jump': Beth Tweddle 'Airlifted To Hospital After Seriously Injuring Her Back' In Ski Crash

Beth Tweddle is the latest ‘The Jump’ contestant to need medical attention, after seriously injuring her back, according to reports.

The former Olympian is believed to have been airlifted to hospital after an incident that took place on the slopes in Austria, on Saturday (6 February).

A source tells to The Sun: “Beth was on the jump on Saturday afternoon and managed to pull it off correctly.

“But she didn’t slow down in time or didn’t stop properly and crashed into a barrier.

“She fractured two vertebrae and will be operated on.”

Beth is far from the first of this year’s ‘The Jump’ contestants to be left needing medical treatment, and two stars have already exited the competition due to accidents.

Rebecca Adlington was left in huge amounts of pain after dislocating her shoulder during a practise jump, while Tina Hobley dislocated her elbow. Unsurprisingly, both women were then forced to leave the competition.

James ‘Arg’ Argent and Louisa Lytton have also suffered injuries while tackling the show’s tough challenges.
