FORMER TOWIE star Amy Childs fell at the first hurdle of reality show The Jump after refusing to do a ski jump.

Nerves got the better of the 23-year-old from Brentwood when she reached the top of the slope after finishing in the bottom two on Monday night’s bob skeleton challenge.

Sitting at the top of the K15 jump, the smallest of the three ski jumps, Childs looked petrified shaking her head vigorously before finally declining.

This allowed 80s pop star Sinitta the chance to simply complete a jump herself and stay in the Channel Four show set in Innsbruck, Austria.

Each day on The Jump, celebrities attempt a different winter sport with the two finishing last having to jump-off to stay in the competition.
