Lorraine Kelly in hospital after falling from a horse

The ITV presenter, who was practising for a charity event, escaped without major injuries


ITV breakfast show presenter Lorraine Kelly has spent the night in hospital after a horse-riding accident.


The 52-year-old was thrown from her horse while training for an Olympic sporting challenge in aid of charity PiggyBankKids.

It is understood Kelly has sustained no serious injuries, but was kept in overnight at a London hospital for observation.

Kelly was taking part in a private training session ahead of a charity modern pentathlon – which includes horse-riding, fencing, swimming, running and laser shooting – which she aimed to complete alongside former PM Gordon Brown’s wife, Sarah, who is president of the children’s charity.

“Our thoughts are with Lorraine as she recuperates following her unfortunate accident,” said Brown.


“She’s such a good friend of PiggyBankKids and we would like to thank her for the contribution she has made and wish her a speedy recovery.”
