Anthea posted a collage of four pictures to her followers, one showing her fracture, two showing the hospital and a selfie of the star in the waiting room.

She captioned the image: “So, yesterday didn’t work out as expected.

“I was going to wear it next and catch a cab into Soho to help promote @pinkribbonfoundation sale of their fabulous new hoodies, sweatshirts and T’s.

“Just after I took this picture outside Fenwicks hailed a black cab, but rushing to get in tripped on a dropped curb twisting my foot, immediately it started to hurt and by the time I arrived @martinezbarlondon where the shoot was taking place, was in total agony.

“So after posing around decided to go home via Chelsea and Westminster A&E, actually on the insistence of Mark and another Black Cab Knight of the road.”

She added: “Now wearing funny boot and resting my fractured 5th Metatarsal in bag of ice taking painkillers every 4 hours wearing my face mask on my foot, because I’ve read infrared light helps with bone healing and of course moaning.

“Hospital was simply amazing but will take 4-6 weeks to fully mend.”(sic)

Fans were quick to offer the presenter a speedy recovery.

Bathboards said: “Oh no!! Speedy recovery!”

Pesfelizesbykaylouise added: “Happy healing!

“My daughter had done the same thing three weeks ago.”

Anthea is attending an event in Oxford Street tomorrow and has warned her followers to excuse her “dodgy footwear”.

Anthea has been presenting for many years and was the host of Blue Peter from 1992 till 1994.

She also presented on GMTV from 1994 to 1996.

More recently in 2017 Anthea appeared on BBC’s Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

Anthea hit headlines when she hit out at former colleague Eammon Holmes.

Speaking to The Guardian, she said: “If anybody was going to have a bit of a tiff, it was Eamonn and I.

“He was going through a difficult time and it was hard for me to understand. I wasn’t as worldly-wise, I didn’t have children.

“His real-life marriage was crumbling, he was living two lives, being torn away from the kids in Ireland all week. He was unhappy. And who’s sitting next to him every morning?”

She continued :“Everything got blown up out of proportion. I didn’t lose my job, Eamonn didn’t have that power.”
