Olympic champion Beth Tweddle has been airlifted to hospital after injuring herself during training for Channel 4 reality show The Jump.
The Bunbury gymnast is understood to have completed a jump but was unable to stop, crashing into a barrier.
Medical staff put her into a neck brace before she was airlifted to hospital for treatment.
It is not yet known if the accident will affect her appearance on the show.
Bath's mum and dad Ann and Jerry released a statement today (Sunday) saying: "Yesterday Beth had a fall on the slopes whilst in training for The Jump. She is stable and due to undergo routine surgery on her back. Beth and the family would like to thank everyone for their good wishes. We will keep you updated on her progress."
Competitors' health and safety 'paramount'
A Channel 4 spokesman said: "The health and safety of the competitors is always paramount and Beth was immediately taken to hospital for treatment after hurting herself during training."
The Jump sees well-known faces take on challenging winter sports such as bobsleigh, ski cross and snowboarding to be crowned champion.
But this year's series has been marred by injuries with both Tina Hobley and Rebecca Adlington forced to withdraw from the competition after sustaining injuries.
Actress Hobley, 44, left the show after dislocating her elbow while performing a stunt, whereas Olympic gold medalist Adlington was seen in agony after dislocating her shoulder during a landing.
