Fans of The Jump might want to bury their head in the snow and cover their ears for a minute, as the big honchos over at Channel 4 have ordered an urgent review into the safety procedures on the show.

After shedloads of viewers took to Twitter to voice their concerns and basically have a big old barney about how unsafe The Jump is, bosses and big cheeses at the channel have urged safety teams to reassess procedures.

What with Olympic athletes Beth Tweddle and Rebecca Adlington having to pull out of the show due to one dislocated shoulder and a broken neck, the broadcaster has urged producers to question the safety standards of EVERY event and their training plan. 

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: "Though it is a new course, the events have been designed to be no more difficult than in previous years and all contributors have undertaken rigorous training to prepare for the show.

"All winter sports carry some form of risk but in light of the number of injuries this year, Channel 4 has asked producers to review safety procedures again to further reduce the prospects of accident.

"The health and safety of the competitors is always paramount and Beth was immediately taken to hospital for treatment after hurting herself during training."

Some viewers have questioned why Beth Tweddle's injury, which left her needing surgery to remove bone from her hip and use it to pin two vertebrae together, was played down so much on Sunday's show.

But what do YOU think? Does The Jump need to be axed or what? Let's discuss this over on our twitter or in the comment box below, 'cos we wanna know your thoughts.
