Anthea Turner and Ritchie Neville missed out on a spot in the final of 'The Jump' on Sunday night (02.02.14) after losing out to Donal McIntyre in the ski jump challenge
Anthea Turner and Ritchie Neville have been eliminated from 'The Jump'.
The pair narrowly missed out on a spot in the final of the celebrity winter sports competition on Sunday night (02.02.14), after losing out to Donal McIntyre in the ski jump challenge, following their poor scores in the slalom, which along with speed-skiing, was one of the key events.
Upon exiting the contest, Ritchie told show host Davina McCall: "I've had an amazing time. I said I'm going to come here and give it 100%, and that's exactly what I did."
The event saw winners Joe McElderry, Sir Steve Redgrave and Marcus Brigstocke take a place in the final with the fourth place up for grabs.
Donal and Ritchie jumped an impressive 15.5 metres and 16 metres respectively, but Anthea only managed 14 metres, putting her out of the contest.
That left the 5ive singer and the investigative journalist to battle it out for a place in the final.
The pair then jumped again, with Donal gaining the longest jump of the series so far at 17.5 metres, however, Ritchie was disqualified after an awkward take off left him crashing to the ground.
The four remaining celebrities will compete to win 'The Jump' when the final screens tonight (03.02.14) on Channel 4.
