Tina Hobley, Rebecca Adlington, Beth Tweddle, Mark-Francis Vandelli and Linford Christie were all forced to pull out of the show since 12 stars headed to Austria in January for the dangerous stunt show.
Sarah appeared to be having the time of her life on the show, after throwing herself into training in Austria at the start of this month.
In early pictures of her in action, she appeared to be inches from a crash landing as she tried her best to master the art of jumping over obstacles in skis.

She was seen whizzing through the air without her poles for balance and looked unsteady as she built up enough momentum to push her over a ramp.
Although she looked far from a natural stunt woman, she managed to pluck up the courage to execute a simple jump mid-air.
Sarah was brightly clad in a skin-tight red one-piece for the stunt, which meant she couldn't be missed on the course.
