Tina Hobley 'unable to drive, dress or wash herself' following The Jump injury

Holby City actress Tina Hobley has revealed how her injuries on The Jump turned out to be a lot worse than feared.

Tina was forced to pull out of the Channel 4 series earlier this year after a crash on the slopes in training.

In a new interview with Hello! magazine, Tina has spoken about how it's been a very tough recovery after suffering from two breaks to her arm and a dislocated elbow .

She revealed: "For much of the year I haven't been able to drive, dress, wash my hair or have a bath unaided. My daughter has had to help me put my clothes on.

"And for months at a time I haven't been able to take the kids to school, run errands, or do any of the things I love like yoga, cycling or walking any kind of distance."

Tina ruled out a return to the series, saying she didn't want to put her family - or body - through the "trauma" again.

Alongside Tina, others who had to quit the show included Mark-Francis Vandelli who fractured his ankle, Rebecca Adlington who dislocated her shoulder, Sarah Harding who injured her knee and Beth Tweddle who injured her back.

Beth said back in June that she was also still recovering from her injury on The Jump with rehab "every day".

Beth had to be airlifted to hospital back in February after falling during practice and hitting a crash barrier.

Speaking on BBC's The One Show, the former Olympic gymnast admitted: "It's hard to talk about it.

"I'm using a psychologist. I didn't panic at the time. It was when I flew back to the UK.

"I realised the journey I'd have to go on - the recovery phase, rehab, surgeons, physics. People couldn't realise how serious it was. I couldn't even deal with it."

She added: "It's been a long road - rehab every day."

Despite the injuries, Channel 4 have confirmed that The Jump will return for a fourth series in 2017.
