The Jump CANCELLED again after 34 celebrities injure themselves

Shockingly, it’s officially the end of the slope for The Jump.

The Channel 4 ski show was “rested” last winter, and has continued its hibernation for a second year after 34 celebrities sustained injuries during its four-season run.

Now, the new C4 boss Ian Katz, who has taken over from Jay Hunt, who commissioned the show, confirms there are “no plans” for it to return.

Last week, gymnast Beth Tweddle confirmed she is suing programme makers after she fractured two vertebrae when she crashed into a barrier on the show in 2016.

She also required surgery on her neck and spinal cord.

Other casualties included Holby City actress Tina Hobley, who dislocated her elbow and suffered two fractures to her arm in 2016.

Former Strictly dancer Ola Jordan said her leg will “never be the same” after sustaining ligament damage on The Jump in 2015.

In the first series, in 2014, Melinda Messenger suffered a concussion, and in 2017 cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins broke a leg.

Katz tells the Mirror: “You can never say never, but we’ve got no plans.”
