The Jump dropped by Channel 4 for 2018

Winter sports reality TV show The Jump will be taking a “rest” in 2018, Channel 4 has said.

The broadcaster said the programme had been a “hugely successful brand”, but wouldn’t be shown at the same time as the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The show sees celebrities take on challenges like speed skating and ski-jumping and has run for four seasons.

But 34 contestants, including actress Tina Hobley and Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan, have been injured.

Jordan suffered a leg injury while former Coronation Street star actress Hobley broke her arm in two places.

There have also been injuries to:

  • Former gymnast Beth Tweddle – broke two vertebrae in neck and had to have part of her hip removed
  • Former swimmer Rebecca Adlington – dislocated shoulder
  • Made in Chelsea star Mark-Francis Vandell – fractured ankle
  • Former athlete Linford Christie – pulled hamstring
  • Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding – injured ligament
  • Model Heather Mills – knee and thumb injury

Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews was the latest winner of the show, which has been presented by Davina McCall.

A spokeswoman for Channel 4 said: “The Jump has been a hugely successful brand for Channel 4 over the last four years.

“However, with such a huge amount of winter sport on screen at the start of 2018 we have decided to rest the show for the year.”
