Holby City actress Tina Hobley has admitted she's shocked that The Jump will be back on Channel 4.

Tina was one of seven celebs forced to quit the show last series due to injury after hurting her arm in training.

Other celebs who were left injured included Beth Tweddle, who required months of recovery after fracturing two vertebrae in her neck.

"The Jump is behind me and I will never do that show again," Tina told the Press Association this week of ever returning to the show.

She continued: "I'm still in shock that it's going again, but of course they will have learnt from all their mishaps and hopefully there won't be any more accidents.

"I'm very, very upset about not skiing for half-term with my children as I have been going for the last 30 years, and I am desperate to ski again."

She added of her injury: "It has been a really tough year, I'm not going to deny that, but we're out the other side and I am hoping I won't be left with any long-term problems."

Balls of Steel presenter Mark Dolan yesterday became the latest name confirmed for The Jump 2017 line up, with celebs seemingly not worried about the show's track record for injury.

As well as fronting Channel 4's Balls Of Steel between 2005 and 2008, the comic and TV host has appeared on Let's Dance for Sport Relief and co-hosted If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World.

Mark confirmed the news on Twitter and told the Daily Mirror newspaper of signing up: "I'm delighted to be taking part, and by delighted, I mean absolutely bloody terrified.

"However, I'm confident I will excel in the après-ski (the social activities following a day's skiing). That's a sport, isn't it?"

Mark is the latest celeb to sign up to the fourth series of the show, following news that Olympian Louis Smith had also joined the line up.

Their rivals on The Jump will reportedly include Big Brother's Josie Gibson, TOWIE's Lydia Bright and X Factor's Jake Quickenden.

The Jump 2017 begins on Channel 4 in the New Year.
