He returned to The Jump to replace the injured Linford Christie, but sadly, James ‘Arg’ Argent’s second trip to the slopes has lasted just one week.

Although, with all the injuries plaguing this series, he might yet be back to try and make it third time lucky.

The Only Way Is Essex star had given it his best shot for Linford’s sake as he took on Sarah Harding in the parallel slalom challenge.

However, after failing the beat the Girls aloud star, Arg was faced with another Air Jump elimination round.

Sadly, his 8.27 metre jump wasn’t enough to keep him in the competition, with newbie Joe Swash jumping 8.67 metres to beat him.

He didn’t seem too upset about leaving the competition (again) though, saying: “I can go back to Essex!”

Elsewhere on the show, Ben Cohen made his first appearance, replacing Mark-Francis Vandelli who pulled out of the competition after fracturing his ankle.

Pregnant girlfriend Kristina Rihanoff was on-hand to show support, saying: “I flew out to be with him. I just don’t want him to fall. We had planned St. Valentine’s dinner at home but it’s beautiful here.”

Heather Mills also returned to the show last night after competing last year.
