Spencer Matthews says celebrities only have themselves to blame for injuries on The Jump 2017.

It follows two of this year's line up being ruled out of the show with Sir Bradley Wiggins the latest to quit.


He was forced to withdraw with a fractured leg, following Vogue Williams who didn't even make the first show after hurting her knee.

But Spencer didn't seem to have much sympathy, telling the Daily Star newspaper: "You must be doing something wrong if you hurt yourself. Anyone that has been hurt should only blame themselves.”

And he also confessed to the tabloid: “I haven’t taken out some crazy health insurance policy before going out there. Not at all."


“I didn’t really read the contract like I should have. I just signed it, as I was a bit busy.”

It was revealed on Sunday night that Sir Bradley had quit The Jump 2017 after injuring his leg.

In the latest show, we saw Bradley being given a pass through to the third week of The Jump 2017 after a leg injury ruled him out of the evening's snow cross event.

The live episode of the Channel 4 show saw contestants skate down the snow cross, a 175 metre track lined with obstacles including a corkscrew tunnel and punchbags.


While he was originally given a bye through to next weekend's show, it's now been decided that due to his leg injury Bradley can no longer take part.

According to The Sun newspaper, Sir Bradley has fractured his left leg.


“He doesn’t need an operation but he does need to rest and that’s why he couldn’t carry on competing," a source said. “He hurt himself in snow-cross training. It’s a cross between ice skating and skiing. It’s like an obstacle course."


Channel 4 told the newspaper: "Bradley injured his leg during training and although keen to continue in the competition he will no longer take part.”

The Jump 2017 airs Sunday nights on Channel 4.
