Beth Tweddle will be discharged from hospital in Austria today (February 16) - nine days after undergoing surgery on her fractured neck.
The Bunbury Olympian shared the good news on her official Twitter account, along with a photo of her smiling - the first time she has been pictured since she fractured two vertebrae while training for Channel 4's The Jump.
Beth, a former Queen's School pupil, has been keeping fans posted with her progress from her hospital bed in Austria and has expressed her gratitude for the many get well messages she has received.
"My Mum and Dad have been reading them to me and, one day, I’ll be able to reply to you all, it really has meant a lot to me, so thank you," she said on Saturday (February 13).
Doctors took a piece of bone from Beth’s hip to fuse the two fractured vertebrae, before pinning them together.
With calls for The Jump to be axed, Channel 4 said production company TwoFour has been ordered to reassess procedures due to the number of casualties this year.
Beth, Britain's most successful gymnast, is one of five of this year's celebrity contestants to sustain an injury.
A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: “The Jump is now in its third series and since launch 46 celebrities have taken part successfully.
“Though it is a new course, the events have been designed to be no more difficult than in previous years and all contributors have undertaken a rigorous training programme to prepare them for the show.
“All winter sports carry some element of risk but in light of the number of injuries this year, Channel 4 has asked the producers to review safety procedures again to further reduce the prospect of accident.”
