Chloe Madeley's mum Judy Finnigan BANS her from returning to The Jump

The Jump Series 2 - (Chloe Madeley)

Chloe Madeley may already have taken part in Channel 4's The Jump without incident - but her mum Judy Finnigan has BANNED her from returning to the show.

Chloe just missed out on a place in the final of last year's series of the winter sports contest, which did not feature any unexpected exits (at least once it had begun airing on telly).

However, the current run has been plagued by serious injuries, forcing no less than FIVE contestants to leave the competition.

And with bosses bringing back previous stars to make up the numbers, Judy - one half of famous telly couple Richard and Judy - isn't taking any chances when it comes to their daughter.

"To say I was petrified would be an understatement," she commented in an interview with Woman magazine.

"If Chloe ever wants to do anything like that again, I will kidnap her, tie her up and lock her in our house!"

Rebecca Adlington, Tina Hobley, Beth Tweddle, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Linford Christie have all been forced to quit The Jump this year over their injuries.

Beth especially made headlines after a crash on the slopes damaged vertebrae in her neck. She was discharged from hospital last week after undergoing surgery to have them fused together.

Heather Mills, who also competed in series two alongside Chloe, was brought back as a replacement contestant - while chiefs gave the current line-up's James 'Arg' Argent a second chance after his early elimination.

Fresh faces Tom Parker, Ben Cohen and Joe Swash were also drafted in, with Joe becoming the third person to be booted at the weekend.

The Jump 2016 continues on Sunday at 8.00pm on Channel 4 with its semi-final.
