The Jump 2016 has lost a SIXTH contestant to injuries today, with Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding now out of the competition after pulling a ligament.

Digital Spy reports that Sarah fell and hurt her knee while skiing in a training session yesterday, and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Doctors then discovered that she had pulled a ligament and advised her to rest for four weeks, meaning she's unable to continue.

It is unlikely that she'll he replaced, as the show is due to conclude a week on Sunday.

A statement released by Channel 4 reads: "Sarah Harding has withdrawn from the competition on medical advice after pulling a ligament in her knee during training yesterday.

"She has been advised by medics to rest and will undergo physiotherapy. Sarah has been a great competitor and we wish her a speedy recovery."

Sarah is the SIXTH contestant to pull out of this year's series of The Jump, which has been branded the most dangerous show on TV, since it begun at the end of January.

Rebecca Adlington, Tina Hobley, Beth Tweddle, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Linford Christie were all forced to quit over conditions ranging from a pulled hamstring to fractured vertebrae.

Other celebs have also suffered scrapes, including rugby star Ben Cohen, who has just had 20 stitches on his face after a crash landing from the ski jump.

Channel 4 bosses are apparently considering axing the show over the embarrassingly long list of injuries - but it's said there are still celebrities eager to sign up for a go at the challenging winter sports.

For now, The Jump continues on Sunday at 8.00pm on C4 with its ski cross semi-final.
