Tina Hobley is considering legal action against The Jump, says a new report.

The Holby City star, 44, was the first celebrity to leave the Channel 4 skiing show due to injury last month.

She broke her arm in two places and dislocated an elbow after a nasty fall, swerving to avoid a member of the production crew.

Following her exit, the show issued the actress with an apology, as her fall was a result of the landing area not being cleared properly.

And, although Tina's admitted she's been invited back to compete in the 2017 series, the Daily Star Sunday now suggests she may sue the channel and producers TwoFour.

She told the newspaper: "Someone told me to jump and it wasn't safe to jump. So it wasn't an accident that was my fault."

She added: "What happened was painful. I'm recovering at the moment. That's what I'm doing. I've got a long recovery to go. It will be about a year before I'm back to normal."

Tina faces two operations to attempt to restore her arm back to normal, which may affect her ability to work.

However, while she recuperates, she has managed to keep a sense of humour about her "bionic arm".

Attending the TRIC awards earlier this month, she tweeted: "I'm getting used to my new fashions accessories #TRICAwards."

Seven out of the 12 contestants in this year's series of The Jump suffered broken bones or torn ligaments, including Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle who broke vertebrae in her neck and needed emergency surgery.

Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington dislocated her shoulder in a nasty fall and described the pain as "worse than childbirth".

Despite numerous complaints, Ofcom have confirmed they won't be investigating the winter sports reality show.

The Jump's third series was won by latecomer Ben Cohen.
