Ex-Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor has become the first celebrity to be injured whilst taking part in Channel 5’s Tour De Celeb.
The reality star is one of a group of famous faces competing in L’Etape du Tour, a 146km stretch of endurance cycling through the French Alps which is described as the toughest challenge in the world of amateur cycling.
The Sun is reporting that Hugo has already suffered an injury, days into filming.
Doctors were called in to examine the ex-I’m A Celebrity castmate yesterday, and he was forced to pull out of a press event to promote the new series.
The report suggests Hugo may have been over-vigorous in training.
“They’re all keen to get off to a good start but Hugo overdid it. He’s frustrated but hopes to be back in the saddle soon,” a source said.
“After the uproar surrounding The Jump, producers will be hoping this is the first and last of the injuries,” added the mole. “With just eight people taking part they can’t afford to lose any more.”
Hugo is joined in the Tour De Celeb line-up by Louie Spence, Angellica Bell and Jodie Kidd and Lucy Mecklenburgh – as well as professional sports stars Austin Healey, Darren Gough and Amy Williams.
Tour De Celeb is due to air on Channel 5 later this year.
