If you've been keeping up with the latest series of The Jump, the chances are you've probably heard about Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle pulling out of the competition due to a nasty fall which left her with an injured back.

What you probably didn't know, though, is that she actually fractured two vertebrae in her neck during the accident, meaning she needed emergency surgery which involved taking a piece of bone from her hip and using it to pin them back into place. Really nasty stuff, eh?

At this point a timescale for her recovery remains uncertain, but her parents have revealed she has been able to walk "a few steps" with assistance and move her fingers and toes, which she initially wasn't able to do. 

In a statement, Ann and Jerry Tweddle said: "Since her surgery, Beth has managed to walk a few steps whilst being assisted by the nursing team.

"She is still very tired from the operation but the medical team are pleased with the progress she is making. At the moment we aren't certain of the timescale for her recovery. We are taking each day as it comes and will update you when there is further news."

Sounds absolutely horrific, doesn't it?

All this comes as other celebrities in the show have also been forced to pull out due to injury, with MIC's Mark Francis fracturing an ankle, swimmer Rebecca Adlington dislocatinga choulder and Holby City actress Tina Hobley fracturing her arm in two places.

Channel 4 have insisted they've made an urgent review into the safety procedures of the show, but that hasn't stopped viewers calling for it to be axed before someone gets even more hurt.

But what do you think? Is it time for The Jump to call it a day? Let us know your thoughts over on our twitter @Sugarscape, y'all.
