Jodie Kidd has joined reality show The Jump after Sally Bercow was forced to pull out due to injury. The model, who has previously taken part in Strictly Come Dancing and was a finalist in 2014's edition of Celebrity MasterChef, signed up to the Channel 4 show at the last minute after 45-year-old Sally suffered two broken ribs.

Sally, whose husband is House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, took a tumble while training for the winter sports show alongside her fellow contestants including, former JLS singer JB Gill, Heather Mills and Zara Phillips' husband Mike Tindall.

Mike, whose grandmother-in-law is the Queen, tweeted his encouragement to Jodie, writing: "You will be sweet!!!"

Sally is not the only person to have pulled out of the show before it hit the small screen. Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan was left with an injured knee after an accident at an indoor skiing centre in Milton Keynes and was later replaced by Chloe Madeley.
