Sinitta has exited 'The Jump' after going head-to-head against Anthea Turner in the live ski jump

Sinitta has been eliminated from 'The Jump'.

The 'So Macho' singer went head-to-head against Anthea Turner in the final challenge after they had earlier recorded the slowest times in the giant slalom, clocking in at 1.00.14 and 56.14 seconds respectively.

During the live jump, Sinitta travelled 9.5 metres on the smallest slope, K15, while Anthea opted for K24, the medium slope, and recorded a distance of 11m.

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt had been quickest on the giant slalom, completing the course in 53.44 seconds, followed by presenter Laura Hamilton, who fell over but still recorded a time of 55.70 seconds.

The fifth remaining female contestant, Melinda Messenger, pulled out of the competition before the event after suffering concussion.

A spokesperson for the show said: "After weeks of training for 'The Jump', Melinda Messenger has had to pull out of the competition after suffering from concussion following bobsleigh training a few days ago

"It had been hoped that she would recover quickly enough to continue in the show but as she hasn't been able to train on medical advice she sadly had to withdraw."

Donal MacIntyre will now take her place in the competition.

The investigative journalist lost out on a spot earlier in the week, when he and Joe McElderry tackled the live jump in a bid to replace Henry Conway, who withdrew with a broken wrist.

Tonight (30.01.14) sees the male and female celebrities compete against one another for the first tine.
