Former 'EastEnders' actress Louisa Lytton had to seek medical advice following a dramatic fall on the slopes in Austria while training for 'The Jump'
Louisa Lytton has been rushed to hospital after she took a dramatic tumble while training for 'The Jump' in Austria.
The 26-year-old actress was taken to Innsbruck medical centre for tests after she suffered an accident "halfway down" the slope while practicing for the winter sports show.
A source explained: "She was in a bad way on the slopes and it didn't help that she was stuck halfway down.
"There was no easy way to get to her and Mountain Rescue were needed to take her off to the hospital.
"She was clearly in a lot of pain and it was all very scary as no-one knew how bad her condition really was."
Despite doctors initially fearing the worst, X-rays and a CT scan later revealed the brunette beauty hadn't broken any bones and was just experiencing extreme bruising.
The insider explained: "She was devastated by the fall and it has really knocked her confidence."
However, the former 'EastEnders' star, who has also fractured her thumb and bruised her backside, won't let her injuries stop her from hitting the slopes when she competes for the first time this Sunday (31.01.16).
The source told The Sun newspaper: "The whole process has been a struggle for her but after all of the suffering she isn't going to let anything get in the way of taking part.
"She wants to reinvigorate her career so crashing out before the show has even started just isn't an option."
Meanwhile, Louisa has made no secret of the fact she's struggling to master the art of skiing and has admitted she's cried "every day" since training kicked off last week.
