Jenni Falconer has praised the NHS for their support after her young daughter Ella was caught up in a ‘terrible accident’, leaving her with a broken leg.
The presenter pulled out of her radio show on Heart yesterday evening following the scary incident and admitted to her social media followers that hearing that the six-year-old had been hurt was a heartbreaking moment.
“Today was eventful. My gorgeous little girl was involved in a terrible accident where she came off the worst,” Jenni, 42, captioned a photo of Ella resting up on a hospital bed.
“Broken leg and admitted to hospital for observation. I can hand on heart say that the call to tell you that something has happened to your child is one of the worst calls you could ever receive.”
Fortunately it sounds like Ella has received the best care following her injury.
“Thankfully the wonderful @nhsenglandldn have been truly amazing, cared for her brilliantly and are making sure she has everything she needs to get better,” Jenni wrote.
“In our ward there are so many poorly children, far worse than Ella, it makes your heart ache seeing their parents just willing their babies to get better. If only we could start today again…. ❤”
Jenni – who shares Ella with actor husband James Midgley – received lots of messages of support from her fans following the news and was touched by the kind words.
“Thank you so much for your get well messages,” the TV star posted later on. “@jpmidge and I are completely overwhelmed by your kind words and best wishes for our little girl.
“We just want her to be back flossing and doing relentless cartwheels as soon as possible.”
Jenni and James, 43, often share glimpse of their family life with Ella on Instagram.
The clan recently enjoyed a holiday to Greece during which they posted several sweet pictures in the scenic location.
Jenni married Cutting It star James in 2010 and has previously spoken of how loved-up they are despite their different characteristics.
“It’s great being married – we really love each other and laugh all the time but we’re so different,” she told the Daily Record in 2013. “He’s so messy and I’m bordering on OCD, so that can be a nightmare for me.
“Since becoming a mum I’ve had to relax though – I used to put Ella’s toys away, only to watch her tip them out again.”
