Former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding has joined the growing list of celebrities forced to pull out of 'The Jump' due to injury.

The 34-year-old star confirmed that she would no longer be able to progress in the reality winter sports competition after rupturing a ligament, making her the sixth celebrity that has had to leave this year's show for medical reasons.
