Louie Spence and Jodie Kidd were left deflated after they were eliminated from winter sports competition The Jump.

Eccentric dancer Spence waltzed out of the competition after he was defeated in the air jump by former JLS singer JB Gill - the popstar managing to beat Spence's leap by just 4cm.

Model and television presenter Kidd, at 6ft 2in, towered over pint-size rival Olympian Louise Hazel in the losers' showdown. But she failed to match Hazel's 6.83m leap in the jump-off.

The four worst contestants reached speeds of 30mph when they leapt from the 4.5m kicker onto a giant air bag to decide which two celebrities would be sent home from the Channel 4 show in Austria.

 

Disappointed Spence told host Davina McCall: “I'm out again, it's the story of my life. Do I get to keep all my pink lycra?”

The quartet were left to fight for their place in the next round after failing at the snow-cross, a fast-paced skating downhill race on a snow course.

Last night, history was made as campaigner Heather Mills became the first ever below-the-knee amputee to take on the ski jump.

However, it wasn't enough to secure her spot in tonight's round of the competition.

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts, England cricket legend Phil Tufnell and Gogglebox regular Dom Parker have also been eliminated.
