Amy Childs eliminated from The Jump after refusing to compete
28 JANUARY 2014
Amy Childs became these second celebrity to be eliminated from The Jump after refusing to do a "petrifying" ski jump.
The former TOWIE star was placed in the bottom two with Sinitta on Monday night's episode after competing in the skeleton event. But fear got the better of the 23-year-old, who could be seen shaking her head as she sat at the top of the run.
Despite receiving lots of encouragement from the crowd, and advice from Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, Amy looked utterly terrified. And as she was seen talking to her coach, viewers were informed that she had refused to make the jump.
It meant that Sinitta, 45, just had to attempt the event to stay in the competition, and, after consoling Amy, she did just that.
"I feel amazing," the So Macho singer told host Davina McCall, before celebrating with a little dance as she was congratulated by her fellow competitors.
Amy had previously broken down in tears over her fear of the ski jump, which she described as "totally petrifying".
Kimberly Wyatt topped the table in the skeleton (44.180 seconds), followed by Melinda Messenger (44.604 seconds. In third place was Laura Hamilton (45.369 seconds), with Anthea Turner in fourth (45.413 seconds).
