Amy Willerton will replace Vogue Williams on 'The Jump'.
The 31-year-old model was forced to pull out of the Channel 4 winter sports show after severely injuring her knee whilst training for the ski cross and is set to be replaced by the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' contestant.
Amy said: "This experience has gone from being an exciting over extended ski holiday to suddenly overnight throwing myself into competition mode - but I'm so so ready for that challenge! I hope I can do Vogue proud."
It comes after Vogue admitted she was "really disappointed" not to be able to compete in the show this year but is setting her sights on appearing in the 2018 edition.
She tweeted: "Really disappointed to be out of The Jump. I've had the time of my life and if the show is back next year I'll be in it to win it! @Channel4 (sic)"
A source shared: "Vogue is absolutely devastated. She was so looking forward to taking part and has been training religiously. She's one of the most competitive of the group and was in with a real chance of winning. But she fell very heavily during the ski cross training and really hurt her knee and on doctor's orders she has had to pull out."
Meanwhile, show host Davina McCall sent her well wishes to Vogue and said she would definitely welcome her back for the next series.
She shared: "awwwww x big hugs x Vogue.... see u next year. Xxxxxx (sic)"
And her fellow contestant Spencer Matthews says he has been left "heartbroken" by Amy's departure from the show.
He tweeted: "Honestly heartbreaking... Amazing moments shared on this fun journey. A true friend.(sic)"
'The Jump' begins on Sunday (05.02.17).
