Until now her sudden departure from the show has been a mystery but in the HELLO! interview she says: "I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. I found out while I was competing in the show and boy, was it more horrific than any of the challenges." "The Jump saved my life," adds Caprice as she recounts the events leading up to her diagnosis: "I had headaches that were not going away and my vision was beginning to act up so the show’s production insisted I see their doctor."
