Sir Bradley Wiggins has become the latest celeb to injure themselves ahead of The Jump 2017 tonight.

The show kicks off this evening on Channel 4 but with just hours to go, Sir Bradley has been receiving medical treatment.

He shared a picture of himself getting his leg strapped up in bandages online, captioning the picture: “The show must go on.”

So it seems as though Bradley's injury isn't too severe that he'll be ruled out of the contest.

But not all the celebs have been so lucky.

Model Amy Willerton has joined The Jump 2017 line up after one celeb was forced to quit.

Last Friday, The Jump 2017 lost its first contestant after a knee injury forced Vogue Williams to leave the competition ahead of launch night.

According to The Sun, Vogue seriously damaged her knee after enduring a heavy fall while training for the ski cross.

A Channel 4 spokesperson said: "Vogue fell during training for ski cross yesterday injuring her knee which sadly means she can no longer continue in the competition."

Former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Amy is now stepping in to take Vogue's place.

Amy had already been in training alongside Vogue and the other celebs as a standby contestant in case of injury.

Although we don't imagine she ever expected to be called upon before the first episode!

Amy said: “This experience has gone from being an exciting over extended ski holiday to suddenly overnight throwing myself into competition mode - but I'm so so ready for that challenge!

“I hope I can do Vogue proud,” she added.

The Jump 2017 begins on Sunday at 7.30pm on Channel 4.
