In a series that saw more stars than ever before having to withdraw from ‘The Jump’ due to injuries behind the scenes, Tina was the first contestant forced to pull out, when she suffered a fall, dislocating her elbow and breaking her arm in two places.
reaShe told the newspaper: “Someone told me to jump and it wasn’t safe to jump. So it wasn’t an accident that was my fault.
Tina said at the time of the incident that she’d been offered a place on the next series of ‘The Jump’, adding: “I am in a lot of pain and I’m very upset to be leaving in these circumstances. This fall wasn’t my fault and as I was doing so well in the competition it’s very frustrating.”
Channel 4 went on to issue an apology, explaining: “Tina’s fall was caused by simple human error when members of the ground crew failed to clear the outrun. All those involved have been spoken to and extra procedures have now been put in place by the producers to ensure that this will not happen again.”
In total, seven celebrities were forced to pull out of the most recent series of ‘The Jump’, which saw Ben Cohen crowned winner last weekend.
Among those who had to withdraw were singer Sarah Harding and Olympians Rebecca Adlington and Beth Tweddle, with the latter having to undergo surgery on her neck following an accident which occurred as a result of taking part in the series.
