The former Girls Aloud star was one of the celebrities forced to pull out of the winter sports reality programme due to a ruptured ligament.

Nearly six months on, Harding, 34, said she still has "another month of physio" to go.

She said during an appearance on This Morning: "I'm still struggling with my knee ... I can't go to the gym as much as I used to."

The singer told the ITV programme hosts James Martin and Anita Rani: "I'm walking again. I was literally in a knee brace for quite some time. I couldn't go to the gym but I'm gradually getting back into toning up."

The Jump came under scrutiny this year as a number of contestants were left with injuries.

Former Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle was involved in a horrific crash that left her needing surgery on her spine.

The 31-year-old sports star had part of her hip removed to fuse two fractured vertebrae in her neck after she crashed into a barrier when landing a jump on the show.

Former Olympic champion swimmer Rebecca Adlington, 27, also withdrew from the show on medical advice after a shoulder injury.

Holby City actress Tina Hobley, Made In Chelsea's Mark-Francis Vandelli and Olympic gold medal winner Linford Christie were among the other famous participants who were injured while taking part in the programme.

Harding is currently preparing to take on a leading role in Ghost: The Musical, a stage version of the 1990 film, which starred Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.
