Gogglebox star Dom Parker has suspected concussion after crashing during ski training for a Channel 4 reality TV show.

The 49-year-old, who was practicing a ski cross course for 'The Jump' in Austria has also hurt his shoulder and is being monitored by specialists.

It has not yet been decided whether he will continue in the show, which has been beset by injuries ahead of its return on Sunday.

Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan withdrew and had to undergo knee surgery after falling, and Sally Bercow - wife of House Of Commons speaker John - has also had to pull out.

Dom Parker, who is an experienced skier, was racing on a 500-metre Ski Cross course, that is infamously dangerous.

I've skied on and off since I was five years old. It's quite exciting - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be trained up to do this stuff.

I'm not expecting to win, probably because I'm a bit old and a bit fat.

But there's a part of me, deep down, thinking 'If I'm going to do it, I'd like to be the winner.
