TOWIE’s Arg eliminated from The Jump – again

The most brutal reality show rumbles on


Celebrity charnel house The Jump has gotten so brutal, it seems to be bringing people back just to knock them down again. 


James ‘Arg’ Argent was eliminated on Sunday night, only one week after he was knocked out (not literally, but you never know on The Jump) the first time. The TOWIE star had been brought back to replace Linford Christie – who was forced to pull out over a hamstring injury – but Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud made short work of him in the slalom and Arg eventually recorded the shortest ski jump in the eliminator, which consisted of pre-recorded jumps due to bad weather preventing a live competition.

Speaking of returns, Heather Mills and Dean Cain were locked in a battle to be slalom champion, with Mills trying to make up for last year. In 2015 an accident (what else?) forced her to compete using someone else’s prosthetic leg. However, standing on her own two feet was not enough to defeat Superman, and Cain clinched the title.


The current roll call of the fallen: Louisa Lytton, Linford Christie, Rebecca Addlington, Mark-Francis Vandelli, Beth Tweddle and Tina Hobley.
