Joe the Champion!

With Marcus and Steve withdrawing due to injury from the ski cross, Joe and Donal went head to head in the final. Joe decided to go for it and take on the jump the competitors have nicknamed ‘Daddy Bear’ to win the competition: the K40. He landed perfectly at a distance of 17.5m. Joe said “I’m just glad I’m down on firm solid ground.”

Donal once again chose the middle (K24) jump. After psyching himself up at the top, he jumped 13.5m

Melinda out; Donal in

After weeks of training for The Jump Melinda Messenger has had to pull out of the competition after suffering from concussion following bobsleigh training a few days ago. It had been hoped that she would recover quickly enough to continue in the show but as she hasn’t been able to train on medical advice so she sadly had to withdraw.

After missing out on a place in the show last night to Joe McElderry, who replaced Henry Conway, investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre will now join the line up and take Melinda’s place. Donal said “I'm tremendously excited about joining the show; it's my most dangerous mission yet!” He will compete from tomorrow night’s show onwards.
