    Hobley tweeted a picture of her arm in a cast and wrote: “When you’re sent to jump and find a man in your landing area – dislocated elbow, two fractures, so sad!”

    Channel 4 has apologised and revealed it will be putting extra procedures in place to ensure the accident does not happen again.

    Despite the best efforts of the Channel, Hobley has already hurt her shoulder in the competition, while Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington has dislocated her shoulder and EastEnders actress Louisa Lytton has hurt her hand.

    Former The Wanted singer Tom Parker will replace her on the show. He has been practising with the celebrities in Austria as the show’s stand-by contestant, but is also suffering with an injury.

    The 27-year-old posted a photo of his bandaged hand after he tore tendons in his wrist during a fall.
