The Jump is perhaps the most controversial reality show in the UK at the moment, with the ski-orientated programme seeing multiple celebrities forced to pull out after enduring horrific injuries whilst filming or rehearsing for the show.

Now Tina Hobley has revealed the true extent of the injuries that she sustained earlier this year, admitting that they were much worse than first believed when she fell on the ITV show.

Speaking out, Tina explained: “I had three major traumas - my elbow came out of its socket and my arm was broken in two places; I tore my rotator cuff in my shoulder and I had a full rupture of my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in the knee.

"For much of the year I haven’t been able to drive, dress, wash my hair or have a bath unaided.

"My daughter has had to help me put my clothes on. And for months at a time I haven’t been able to take the kids to school, run errands, or do any of the things I love like yoga, cycling or walking any kind of distance.”

Tina also told Hello magazine that most of her injuries weren’t revealed until she consulted a doctor in London upon her return from Austria, where The Jump is filmed.

She was also forced to miss out on acting work, including a role in TV drama Broadchurch, due to her injuries and the operations that she has needed.

Former Olympic gymnast, Beth Tweddle, was also left severely injured after appearing on the show, suffering a devastating spinal injury.

Rebecca Adlington dislocated her shoulder, Mark-Francis Vandelli fractured his ankle and Linford Christie damaged his hamstring.

Tina previously hinted that she might sue the show as she sustained the injuries after she was told to jump when it wasn’t safe for her to do so.
