The Loose Women presenter took a tumblewhile running down a flight of stairs with her hands in her pockets, wearing four-inch ankle boots.
Carol, 52, subsequently needed surgery on her face and was left with nasty bruising around her eye.
She said: ‘I’m a complete idiot! But I’m fine. I am just counting my blessings that I didn’t damage my skull or the left eye itself.’
Carol has been forced to cancel her TV work after the accident and joked with her Loose Women pals: ‘I’m fine…I’m just bored to death!’ See more pictures below…
