This Morning star's horror as daughter is rushed to hospital with broken bones after accident in the street


Vanessa Feltz opened up about a horror incident involving her daughter Allegra, 36, on Wednesday’s episode of This Morning.

Speaking on the incident, the 62-year-old explained how her daughter was walking back home from work wearing trainers on Friday night, when she was involved in a horrific accident.

"She went flying on an uneven slab of pavement,” the TV personality told hosts Cat Deeley and Ben Shephard. “She hurtled through the air and we think that she hit her face as she fell on another sticking up, jagged, uneven slab of pavement.”

The revelation had the hosts gasping in shock as Vanessa explained her daughter was “extremely badly injured,” lying in a “spreading pool of her own blood,” in Hendon, North West London.

“Nobody knew which bit of her was bleeding,” she continued explaining that Allegra couldn’t move and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance.

As Vanessa explained the story on This Morning, she told viewers that Allegra was currently having an MRI scan, as she has an elbow broken in two places.

She also suffered a laceration under the chin which had to be stitched up, as well as a black eye and cuts over her face and body. She explained that her hand and shoulder may also be broken.

Allegra returned from the hospital past midnight that night, as Vanessa emotionally described her looking like a “broken bird.”

Previously, the star spoke about the incident on LBC and said the phone lines were jammed with people all over the country who could relate to falling on the uneven pavements.

Host Ben Shephard then asked the star if she had had a response from the council to which she responded she hadn’t yet. “We’ve been so upset and also busy with hospitals and doctors and appointments that we haven’t given it a thought yet.”

She then explained that her main priority was her ‘badly hurt’ daughter’s well being. “We don’t even know how many broken bones she’s got yet,” Vanessa said. “I just don’t want anyone else to take a fall, but also you don’t want to spend all your life looking down and picking your way along the pavement like it’s an obstacle course.

“You want to feel safe that you can walk along the pavement for God’s sake, don’t you?”

Vanessa has two daughters, Allegra and Saskia Kurer who she shares with her ex-husband Michael Kurer.
