The Scottish GMTV presenter has Tweeted from hospital
Lorraine Kelly is recovering in hospital after she was thrown off a horse yesterday.
The GMTV host was injured during a riding lesson in London and is being treated for ‘serious leg injuries’.
‘Thanks for your get well tweets,’ Lorraine Tweets from hospital.
‘Basically I fell of the horse while attempting a jump for the first time.
‘Unfortunately the horse stamped on my thigh. As a result – deep wound and lots of blood.
Was treated by fab paramedics in ambulance – then given an op under general anaesthetic at hospital.’
The 52-year-old has been learning to ride for a charity pentathlon she was due to take part in with Sarah Brown for PiggyBankKids – but she’ll no longer be able to compete.
‘Will be in (hospital) for a couple if days and will take around four weeks to heal but will be back at work before that!’ continues Lorraine.
‘A bit bruised and battered but fine – just sad I can’t complete today’s charity challenge.
‘Huge thanks to everyone at the scene and the amazing NHS staff- and to you for thinking of me!’
