Joe Swash leaves The Jump

Joe Swash has been eliminated from 'The Jump'.

The former 'EastEnders' star - who joined the competition two weeks ago as the replacement for Beth Tweddle - has been knocked out of the winter sports show after he received the lowest score in the Air Jump in tonight's episode (21.02.16).

Joe, 34, found himself in the bottom two, along with Sarah Harding, after he was advised not to take part in the moguls skiing round - featuring sharp turns, difficult manoeuvres and speed - after he chipped a bone in his shoulder last week.

After sustaining the injury, he explained: "I've done something to my shoulder. I've chipped a bone in my shoulder. I was ruled out of the Moguls."

And Joe was also left red-faced on live TV when host Davina McCall told viewers he was having a smooch with his new girlfriend Stacey Solomon.

She told the camera: "Stacey and Joe are K-I-S-S-I-N-G!"

Elsewhere in the episode, Dean Cain saw off competition from Heather Mills in the second race after she missed half of the course.

Explaining what happened, she said: "I was practising moguls a bit much and my line attachment [of her prosthetic leg] came off. So then I just went down the side so I could face The Jump."

And former The Wanted star Tom Parker was defeated by Ben Cohen, who picked up a mini cowbell trophy.

On next week's episode of 'The Jump' the remaining competitors will take on Ski Cross in the semi-final on Sunday February 28 at 8pm.
