Tina still hob­bling a year on from The Jump

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY JA­NINE YAQOOB

HOLBY City ac­tress Tina Hob­ley still walks with a crutch a YEAR after her ter­ri­fy­ing ac­ci­dent on The Jump.

Tina, 45, suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries to her leg, arm and shoul­der while com­pet­ing on the Chan­nel 4 show.

Just days ago she was seen in Lon­don look­ing un­steady and lean­ing on a crutch for sup­port.

Tina says her pain and suffering has had a “huge im­pact” on her life.

Her act­ing ca­reer has been put on hold and she missed a chance to au­di­tion for ITV se­ries Broad­church.

And she can longer do the things she en­joys, like skiing. But she hopes the after-ef­fects are not per­ma­nent.

The mum of three said: “For much of the year I haven’t been able to drive, dress, wash my hair or have a bath un­aided. I’m very up­set about not skiing with my chil­dren as I have been go­ing for the last 30 years. It has been a re­ally tough year, I’m not go­ing to deny that.I hope I won’t be left with long-term prob­lems.”

The Jump is back on Fe­bru­ary 5 de­spite in­juries to Tina and six other stars in­clud­ing Olympians Re­becca Adling­ton and Beth Twed­dle.

Tina added: “I’m still in shock that it’s go­ing again, but of course they will have learned from all their mishaps and hope­fully there won’t be any more.”

This year’s crop in­cludes cy­cle star Sir Bradley

Wig­gins, gym­nast

Louis Smith and model Caprice.
