But while Gulzar-Brown seems relatively unscathed, the impact of the fall on Attwood's elbow ends up jarring her old shoulder injury, leaving her tearful at the pain.

She explains: "It's just gone straight through my elbow into my bad shoulder."

The other celebrities in the training session look concerned as they keep cycling at speed around the track.

As well as action from the velodrome, Thursday night's episode on ITV will see the men take part in the speed climbing event which was popular with viewers of the recent Tokyo Olympics.

However, the number of medals hasn't been the only achievement for some of the celebrities taking part in the challenge series which sees 12 famous faces compete in Olympic disciplines.

Coronation Street's Colson Smith, who has enjoyed a body transformation in recent years since taking up running during lockdown, won over viewers by being absolutely delighted with last place in a swimming race.

Smith, 23, had managed to smash his previous personal best for the event, despite only learning to swim five weeks previously as he had spent his childhood too ashamed of how he looked to get in the pool.

Viewers have also praised Max George for taking part just weeks after losing his best friend and The Wanted bandmate Tom Parker to a brain tumour.

The Games continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
