Actress Tina Hobley has quit The Jump 2016 after an accident on the slopes left her with a nasty injury.

It's understood that Tina took a nasty fall after a mistake involving a member of the show's crew.

She was rushed to hospital and while the Holby City star has been discharged by doctors she will not be continuing in the show.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said in a statement this evening: “The Jump adheres to the strictest safety protocols to ensure that the health and safety of the competitors is always paramount.

"Tina’s fall was caused by simple human error when members of the ground crew failed to clear the outrun.

"All those involved have been spoken to and extra procedures have now been put in place by the producers to ensure that this will not happen again.

"We’re very sorry to lose Tina from the competition and wish her a very speedy recovery.”

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Tina said of her fall: “I am in a lot of pain and I’m very upset to be leaving in these circumstances.

"This fall wasn’t my fault and as I was doing so well in the competition it’s very frustrating.

“I’ve been invited back to compete next year and I really hope I can do that.”

It's not yet clear if Tina will be replaced in the line up. Louisa Lytton became the first to leave the competition last Sunday night so may be invited back to return to the show.

The Jump airs Sunday nights on Channel 5.
