In 2016, Tweddle participated in the third series of Channel 4 reality contest show The Jump. However, on February 7, two weeks into the show, Tweddle suffered a back injury and was forced to withdraw from the competition. It was reported on 8 February 2016 that she had successfully undergone neck surgery to fuse two vertebrae together using a piece of her hip bone.
In the uneven bars final, Tweddle won the bronze medal with a score of 15.916. She said, "It's the best feeling in the world to win the bronze medal, there was one point today I thought I'd end in 4th like in Beijing 08, so I'm really happy. This was the one medal missing from my collection; this is the one I really wanted. I tried to keep calm and do what I do best and the crowd were amazing, as soon as I walked into the arena it was incredible. I haven't made any future plans yet, I definitely won't be in Rio but I'm happy to go home now and have a bit of a holiday and get back into the gym; if my heart's in it I will continue. I had a step on my dismount but at the end of the day I had to go for the difficult dismount to challenge for a medal. To be honest I could say 'what if' but I'm not disappointed in the slightest, any medal, any colour is what I always said I wanted, so I'm extremely happy."
Tweddle retired in August 2013. Following retirement, Tweddle's profile allowed her to take on a variety of media and sporting work. On 10 March 2013, Tweddle won the eighth series of Dancing on Ice along with partner Daniel Whiston, who won the show for the third time. In 2014, she took part in the ninth and last series of Dancing on Ice, the "All-Stars" series, with new skating partner Łukasz Różycki, making the final and coming third.
Tweddle represented Great Britain at three Olympic Games. She is the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist on uneven bars, the 2006 and 2010 World Champion on the uneven bars, the 2009 World Champion on floor exercise, a four-time European Champion on the uneven bars, and a two-time European Champion on the floor exercise.
After the Beijing Olympics, Tweddle decide to contentrate her training on uneven bars and floor. She said, "I thought I would retire this year but then I was so close in Beijing that there is still some unfinished business. Now I don't really know when I'll stop. To be honest 2012 is in my sights now which it wasn't this time last year. We will just have to see how my body holds up but that's the goal. As long as I'm still enjoying it and still up there challenging then I'll keep going. I want to try to prove everyone wrong and get that Olympic medal. I've been working closely with both my coach and my physio to keep my body going. My training has changed a lot and I only do bars and floor seriously now. Beam and vault are the ones which hurt my feet and I can't really upgrade enough to be up there to contend for the all around anymore. I've also changed my training partner and now I train with Hannah Whelan. The variety has given me a new lease of life."
In October, Tweddle competed at the World Championships in Tokyo, Japan. She contributed scores of 15.666 on uneven bars and 14.533 on floor toward the British team's fifth-place finish. This was the team's highest placement ever and qualified a full team for the Olympics. In the floor final, Tweddle placed seventh with a score of 14.500. She said, "The week has been a great success as we achieved our number one aim and we've got the British women's team qualified for 2012 so that's now the focus."
At the beginning of July, Tweddle was selected to compete for the United Kingdom at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She said, "It is of course a massive honour to be selected to Team GB for the Olympic Games. This is my third Olympics and with it being on home soil it's definitely the most special. The build-up has been totally different and you really feel the support of the whole country. Everyone knows everything about the Games this year and people are really interested in all the events and all the team members. From Beijing to here has been a long journey. After 2008 I wasn't even sure I would carry on, but the huge support for London and the enthusiasm of the public has really motivated me and inspired me to carry on training hard. Everything about competing in the Olympic Games is exciting, the moment you get the official letter, the kitting out, the multi-sport atmosphere, it's all a huge honour to be a part of and I can't wait."
At the end of July, Tweddle competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom. In the team final, Tweddle contributed scores of 15.833 on uneven bars and 14.166 on floor toward the British team's sixth-place finish.

Tweddle was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours. She said, "It's been totally surreal to get an MBE. I didn't really believe it at first. I waited for the letter telling me I was coming to the palace before I did. I was surprisingly quite nervous before the ceremony – I was worried about tripping up when I walked in. Everyone kept saying to me 'you are not going to cartwheel in'. I train to win gymnastic medals but away from gymnastics the MBE is a massive honour."
In April 2008, Tweddle competed at the European Championships in Clermont-Ferrand, France. She contributed a score of 16.075 on uneven bars toward the British team's sixth-place finish. In event finals, she placed fourth on uneven bars scoring 15.475 and second on floor scoring 15.525.
In June, Tweddle competed at the British Championships in Guildford, United Kingdom. She placed second on uneven bars with a score of 14.550 and was unable to compete on any other apparatus due to an ankle injury. She said, "I've only been able to train on the bars for the past couple of weeks so I've had to do a lot of visualisation with the other apparatus. But hopefully this week I'll be able to train on the floor, beam and vault. I've had a few ankle injuries before so it's just a case of having physio, doing lots of exercises and just keeping on top of it. It's just a case of working with it and looking after it." Afterwards, Tweddle was selected to compete for the United Kingdom at the 2008 Summer Olympics. She said, "I'm really excited and just looking forward to getting there and doing the best job I can."
In August, Tweddle competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. She contributed scores of 15.650 on uneven bars and 14.950 on floor toward the British team's ninth-place finish. In the uneven bars final, she placed fourth with a score of 16.625. Tweddle said, "I'm going to continue, I don't see myself quitting now, although I will have some time off. I was pleased just to be in the final. My dismount is normally not a problem but I just didn't get enough height and to be honest I thought I was going to end up on my face. My dream has been to be in the final. Now I'll have to leave it to London in 2012 to get a medal. I came into this final in last place, so I just had to go out there and do it and I am pleased with my performance. It was a good result, I am not disappointed with fourth."
Tweddle attended The Queen's School, Chester and completed a foundation degree with the University of Liverpool. In 2007, she graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a degree in sports science. She was accepted to the University of Liverpool's physiotherapy programme and began to attend after the 2012 Summer Olympics. Tweddle is also involved with Total Gymnastics. She said, "I have a sports science degree, and I'll be continuing my studies in the future – I have place at the University of Liverpool to study Physiotherapy in 2012. I've also started Total Gymnastics with the help of former Olympic swimmer Steve Parry. We go into schools and leisure centres to help give children a chance to try gymnastics – which I'm enjoying because so many gymnastics clubs are overbooked.". Tweddle is a keen football fan and is a supporter of Conference Premier team Chester F.C.. She is also a patron of Alder Hey Children's Hospital charity.
In July, Tweddle competed at the British Championships in Guildford, United Kingdom. She won the all around competition for the seventh straight time with a score of 59.750. In event finals, she placed first on uneven bars scoring 16.350. Tweddle said, "It's a bit spooky to win my seventh title on the seventh of the seventh 2007. I was really happy with how things went today. I made the decision to alter my second floor tumble just to help my foot and make sure I didn't injure it before the Worlds, but everything else was fine."
In March, Tweddle injured her right ankle and was unable to compete in the 2006 Commonwealth Games. She said, "It's a big disappointment as I was looking forward to the Games but as team captain I'll stay in Melbourne and cheer the team on. It will be difficult watching but I'll have to put the injury behind me now. We were doing podium training when I landed badly after a vault. I knew straight away that something was wrong. The injury is not too severe it is a bruised bone and the doctors have said I will be back in time for the Europeans in April. In the back of my mind I was still hoping to do bars but the doctors advised me to leave it if I wanted to be fit for the Europeans. The Beijing Olympics are still in the back of my mind but I've still not decided whether I will carry on yet."
At the end of the year, Tweddle was nominated for, and finished in third place, for the 2006 BBC Sports Personality of the Year, the only British gymnast ever to make the short list for the award.
In April, Tweddle competed at the European Championships in Milan, Italy. In event finals, she placed first on uneven bars scoring 15.575 and first on floor scoring 15.150. Tweddle said, "It is nice to be back. Since 2006 I have had my share of fourth positions, and all week I have been so focused on getting everything right. I was a touch short on the Tkatchev-half, and I think it was pure determination that got me through."
In August, Tweddle competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. She contributed an all around score of 36.912 toward the British team's eleventh-place finish. In the all around final, Tweddle placed nineteenth with a score of 35.761.
