The Jump is fast becoming one of the most dangerous reality television shows on the box.

Seriously the contestants are dropping like flies, with Sally Bercow today pulling out of the Channel 4 skiing competition because of fractured ribs.

The 45-year-old suffered a fall while training on the slopes and was advised by doctors to leave the competition.

Producers have now called in model Jodie Kidd to take her place.

Last month Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan was forced to leave the competition after injuring her leg.

Since then Ola has undergone surgery as it was feared she may have ended her dancing career in the accident.

Chloe Madeley stepped in to take her place and now is training alongside: Ashley Roberts, Dom Parker Heather Mills, JB Gill, Joey Essex, Jon-Allan Butterworth, Louie Spence, Louise Hazel, Louise Thompson, Mike Tindall, Phil Tufnelll, Stacey Solomon, Steve-O, Lady Victoria Hervey and latecomer Jodie.

Let’s just hope no one else succumbs to the dangers of the slopes…
