Mark-Francis Vandelli has revealed he may need a YEAR out to recover from his injury on The Jump 2016.

The Made In Chelsea star was one of SEVEN celebs forced to withdraw from the competition this year after hurting himself.

Mark-Francis smashed his ankle in while taking part in the Snow Cross and he's still in pain a month on.

"I had to have 16 stitches," he told Bang Showbiz (via Mirror). "I need two more operations and it will take one year to fully heal. I'm still in pain."

He revealed: "The plan now is just to recover."

Despite the nasty injury, Mark-Francis defended the show and added: "The Jump was a lovely concept. I was a good skier, although I never went to ski school."

Meanwhile another celebrity contestants injured on the Channel 4 series is also facing more trips to hospital.

Joe Swash may need surgery after hurting his shoulder and could require an operation to put it right.

He revealed to the Metro newspaper last week: "It’s alright, it’s coming on, and it’s a little bit sore.

"I’m going back to the hospital tomorrow so they can have another look and we can take it from there."

Joe added: "I haven’t had an operation at the moment but I think when we go back then they’ll have another look and they’ll be able to see the damage."

It was rugby ace Ben Cohen who won The Jump this year in the final earlier this month.
