The Jump's Lydia Bright had a nasty crash in training ahead of tonight's final.

Lydia made a comeback to The Jump 2017 this week after originally missing out on the last live show in last Sunday's show.


"Yes it's true. Big boots to fill... I can't believe this is happening right now! Making it through to the FINAL of The Jump is INSANE," she wrote on Twitter.

Lydia's second chance followed Gareth Thomas quitting the show.

The rugby star wasn't injured, instead leaving due to "personal reasons", according to The Sun newspaper.

“Gareth was devastated to have to leave. He’s had the time of his life and thought he was in with a shot of winning," a source spilled to the tabloid.

They added: “Lydia was obviously gutted to hear that Gareth had to quit but she’s thrilled to be back in the competition as his replacement.”

Unfortunately for poor Lydia, training for the final hasn't been totally going to plan.


"I had a really bad fall three days ago," she told the Daily Mirror newspaper today. “I was doing a jump and I didn’t land - I just crashed.

“It all happened in a split second but all the medics came over. "

Lydia confessed: “It’s really tough because every fall on that jump sets you back. One fall, and you’re back to square one.

“And training has been on a different level this week - the jumps are a lot harder.

“But I feel so lucky I’ve been given a second chance.”


Joining Lydia in the final tonight are Spencer Matthews, Jason Robinson, Louis Smith, Kadeena Cox, Amy Willerton and Emma Parker Bowles.

The Jump concludes tonight on Channel 4 with the live final from 8:30PM.
