    Channel 4 to review The Jump’s safety procedures

    Channel 4 to review The Jump’s safety procedures

    Channel 4 have confirmed they will review safety procedures on reality show, The Jump, after a fourth star was forced to leave due to injury.

    Made in Chelsea’s Mark-Francis Vandelli was taken to hospital after falling in a snow cross race and fracturing his ankle.

    He is the fourth star to withdraw from the third series of the show following a string of winter sports accidents, prompting Channel 4 to confirm that it will be reviewing safety procedures.

    ‘Show safety being reviewed’

    A spokeswoman for Channel 4 says although the 26-year-old received immediate medical treatment he will not be able to continue competing in The Jump as a result of fracturing his ankle.

    She says the show’s producers have been asked to review safety procedures in light of the number of injuries that have been sustained this year. It is hoped that doing so, she adds, will reduce the chances of another accident happening.

    Vandelli’s accident follows the withdrawal due to injury of Olympians Beth Tweddle and Rebecca Adlington along with Holby City star Tina Hobley.

    Retired gymnast Tweddle is still in hospital, having undergone surgery after injuring her neck in a fall during training.

    Linford Chistie hopes to return

    Former sprinter Linford Christie, meanwhile, has had to take time out of the show after injuring his hamstring but hopes to return to the competition.

    The Channel 4 spokeswoman says the show’s events have not been designed to be more difficult than in previous years, adding that all competitors take part in a “rigorous” training programme.

    Hundreds of British holidaymakers are injured in alpine skiing accidents at resorts across Europe and North America each year.
