Hamilton slopes off in The Jump

Laura Hamilton is out of The Jump

Laura Hamilton has revealed she cannot wait to get home to her family, as she became the latest celebrity to be eliminated from The Jump.

The TV presenter left the Channel 4 show, after losing to Donal MacIntyre in the live jump. Both chose to jump from the middle slope K24, but Laura's fate was sealed when she landed half a metre shorter than Donal.

"I'm really happy with everything I've achieved," she said, adding: "I can't wait to cuddle my baby, Rocco."

She tweeted: "I've had an absolutely amazing time on #thejump. Got very emotional seeing little Rocco on TV."

Sir Steve Redgrave topped the leader board with a time of 58.46 seconds, with Kimberly Wyatt in second place with 59.56 seconds after the eight celebrity contestants took part in the two man bobsleigh event.

Ritchie Neville took third spot, followed by newcomer Joe McElderry, Marcus Brigstocke and Anthea Turner.

Donal, who had just joined the show, was disqualified after failing to get in the sled, putting him instantly at the bottom of the leader board.

All the competitors will battle it out head to head in speed skating in tonight's show, which will be shown at 9pm on Channel 4.
