Jackass star Steve-O became the latest celebrity to be knocked out of The Jump tonight.

The Hollywood daredevil was pipped by just three centimetres in losing the elimination air-jump to British Paralympian Jon-Allan Butterworth.

With television presenter Chloe Madeley safely getting through with a devilish 6.66m jump, Steve-O posted 6.57m, only to be pipped by Butterworth’s 6.60m.

It came in a night of drama on the Austrian slopes which saw Made In Chelsea’s Louise Thompson needing medical treatment after crashing out in the ski-cross race event.

But the reality star bravely carried on to get through to the next round of the tournament at Jump Mountain in Kuhtai.

Royal husband and ex-England rugby captain Mike Tindall bagged himself a golden ticket to Monday’s final after putting in the fastest time around the ski-cross course. He pipped reality star Joey Essex from The Only Way Is Essex, by just over a second.

They were joined in safely getting through by Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning heptathlete Louise Hazel and former JLS singer JB Gill, and then by Thompson.

That left the three slowest ski-crossers to fight it out to avoid elimination.

The remaining six contenders will test their snowboarding skills in the next show, with coaching from Sochi Winter Olympic medallist Jenny Jones.
