Flash Gordon star Sam J. Jones injured in ski contest

Flash Gordon star Sam J. Jones has been forced to pull out of an upcoming TV ski competition after injuring his shoulder. The actor had been training for a place in new U.K. reality TV show The Jump, in which 12 celebrities take to the slopes to show off their skiing skills, but has now left the line-up after sustaining a nasty injury.
Jones hurt his shoulder when he fell over while celebrating a successful ski jump, telling Britain’s The Sun newspaper, “I was so shocked when I landed (successfully)… and I went ‘Yeah!’ and raised my arms. So after completing the run I fell over and hurt my arm.”
The actor will reportedly be replaced by 5ive pop singer Ritchie Neville, who has been training as a reserve.
The line-up also features British Olympic hero Sir Steve Redgrave and 1980s pop singer Sinitta.
