The Jump ‘AXED’ by Channel 4 after dramatic failing ratings!

Controversial winter sports show The Jump has been ‘axed by Channel 4 after dramatic ratings loss’.

The Jump hosted by Davina McCall has hit the headlines constantly this series with many celebrities taken to Hospital for treatment after major accidents.

According to The Sun, Channel 4 now plan to cancel the show because of falling viewing figures.

A source for the show claimed: “The feeling among the show team is that this has been the worst series yet,

“After so many injuries, the celebrities are terrified of everything — and then the viewer ratings have fallen off a massive cliff. Yes, there has been a lot of controversy about people getting injured, but that isn’t the problem. At the end of the day, this comes down to business.

“The show is just not pulling in the viewing figures to justify the huge amount being spent on it.”

Beth Tweddle had to have two vertebrae in her neck fused together after a serious incident training for the show.

2.3 million tuned into the premiere episode of The Jump 2016 and just 1.6 million watched the semi-final last week.

A showspokesperson has denied the claims: “The Jump has been hugely successful, averaging over two million viewers. Last Sunday it helped Channel 4 to be the most watched commercial channel across the day.

“It is categorically untrue to suggest the show has been axed.”

Tonight will see Ben Cohen, Tamara Beckwith, Sid Owen and Dean Cain compete to become The Jump 2016 champion.
