Darren Gough and SIr Steve Redgrave had to face the jump this evening after coming at the bottom of the leaderboard in the skeleton competition.

Gough took to the smallest jump and managed to travel 12m, while Redgrave decided to jump from the medium ramp and managed to travel 14.5m.

"I was nervous there, I really was," said Gough after jumping. "I'm just pleased to get down. To get down was a massive bonus."


Gough added that he was "fine" after finding out that he had been eliminated from the show.

Meanwhile, after Davina McCall informed Redgrave that he was to continue in the competition, he said: "It was horrible being up there. My plan was to not do any jumps at all."


Only four contestants competed today, after Henry Conway had to pull out of the competition due to breaking a bone in his wrist.

Joe McElderry replaced Conway as a contestant on the Channel 4 show this evening.
