Strictly Come Dancing pro Ola Jordan will undergo surgery this week after her injury on The Jump.

Dancer Ola was in training for the Channel 4 series last year when she fell while skiing and injured her leg and knee.

The potentially career changing injury left Ola in hospital in the run up to Christmas and facing up to nine months recovering.

Now Ola faces surgery to help get her back to full health, tweeting this week: "Had a good Physio session today. They said I'm ready for my operation on Tuesday. Fingers crossed everything goes well. Xxx"

A source added the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "It has been a very worrying time for Ola - the type of injury she suffered can be career threatening."

The Jump host Davina McCall this weekend branded celebs "mad" for agreeing to take part in the series.

“I honestly don’t know what the celebrities are thinking signing up,” she confessed. “They must be mad, especially after seeing how many people got injured and how dangerous it was last year.”

Stars taking part in the new series are X Factor’s Stacey Solomon, Made In Chelsea’s Louise Thompson and JLS singer JB Gill.

The Jump 2015 begin on Channel 4 later this month.
