Ben Cohen joins The Jump

Ben Cohen has joined 'The Jump'.

The retired rugby player is the latest addition to the Channel 4 reality TV show, which sees celebrities compete at various winter sports including skeleton, bobsleigh, speed skating, ski cross and giant slalom.

Ben has already flown out to Austria where 'The Jump' is filmed and is expected to make his first appearance on the show this Sunday (14.02.16), according to Digital Spy.

This year's show has been plagued by injuries with Linford Christie the most recent casualty.

The former athlete suffered a hamstring injury but didn't recover in time to train for this week's show, forcing him to quit with the most recently eliminated contestant, James 'Arg' Argent, brought back to replace him.

Olympian gymnast Beth Tweddle broke her back when she ploughed into a bollard during training while 'Made in Chelsea's Mark-Francis Vandelli snapped his ankle while competing in the Snow Cross challenge.

Retired Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington dislocated her shoulder earlier this month and Tina Hobley was forced to quit after she dislocated her elbow.
