News for Channel 4's The Jump just went from double bad to worse, after it was revealed they might be forced to payout a ridonkulous £500k after seven celebrities were injured on the show.

Cast your mind back a couple of months and amongst all the Leo DiCaprio Academy Awards fuss and Lad and Dad photos (side note: THEY'RE STILL TOO ADORABLE), you might remember a load of celebrities flew out to Austria, only to break a bone and be flown straight back.

Of course we're actually talking about The Jump, which left a total of seven celebrities - including Beth Tweddle, Rebecca Adlington, Mark Francis, Sarah Harding and Heather Mills - seriously injured while filming the show.

According to The Sun, a compensation specialist at Quittance reckon The Jump could be forced to fork out thousands to each of the hurt celebs if they decide to pursue the matter.

The compensation fella said Beth Tweddle, who suffered serious neck injuries, could claim £100k, whilst Tina Hobley, who broke her arm in two places, could be due £40k and Rebecca Adlington £13,000 after dislocating her shoulder.

Blimey.

The specialist continued that Mark Francis's fractured ankle deserves £8k, Heathe Mill's knee injury could gain her £12k and Sarah Harding £8,000 after rupturing a leg ligament. 

SO. MANY. INJURIES.

If this doesn't count as an excuse for us being lazy, sitting in front of a fire and never stepping foot near a pair of skis, we don't know what does.
