Tina Hobley has quit The Jump 2016 after an accident on the slopes left her with a severe injury.
The incident occurred due to mistakes made by the crew.
The Holby City actress has been discharged from hospital but won’t be returning to the show.
A spokesperson for Channel 4 said in a statement: “The Jump adheres to the strictest safety protocols to ensure that the health and safety of the competitors is always paramount.
“Tina’s fall was caused by simple human error when members of the ground crew failed to clear the outrun.
“All those involved have been spoken to and extra procedures have now been put in place by the producers to ensure that this will not happen again.
“We’re very sorry to lose Tina from the competition and wish her a very speedy recovery.”
Tina revealed: “I am in a lot of pain and I’m very upset to be leaving in these circumstances.
“This fall wasn’t my fault and as I was doing so well in the competition it’s very frustrating.
“I’ve been invited back to compete next year and I really hope I can do that.”
There’s been speculation that a replacement for Tina will be brought in, with axed contestant Louis Lytton being a hot pick to return.
The Jump continues on Sunday (Channel 4).
