Davina McCall has praised Beth Tweddle for being ‘strong and positive’ as she recovers from a terrifying injury on The Jump.

The Olympic gymnast had to undergo surgery to fuse two vertebrae in her neck using a piece of bone taken from her hip after a crash in training.

In a statement released at the weekend, Beth told fans that she’s taken an amazing step in her recovery and has begun to walk unaided.

On Sunday night’s episode of The Jump, host Davina revealed that she’s been to see Beth in hospital and that she’s doing well.

She told viewers: “I went to go and see Beth in hospital this morning. It was really good to see her actually, because she was walking down the corridor with her mum and dad. She was so smiley.

“She’s so strong and positive, Beth, and she did want to say a massive thank you for all the good wishes because it’s really spurring her on. She really appreciates it.”

On Saturday (February 13), Beth wrote a message on her website, praising the ‘fantastic’ medical staff in Austria and saying: “It’s still a case of taking one day at a time, but I’m setting myself goals and I’m determined to be up and about as soon as I can.

“The doctors are happy with my progress and next week we will have a better idea of when I can be discharged from hospital. Thank you to everyone that has sent me get well messages.

“My mum and dad have been reading them to me and, one day, I’ll be able to reply to you all. It really has meant a lot to me, so thank you.”
