Poor Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden is not having the best half term holiday, as she's managed to spend most of it with a broken leg.

The TV star has been holidaying with her family, and while away she attempted to do an inflatable assault course... which didn't end terribly well for her.

Amanda revealed in an Instagram picture that she managed to break her leg, writing: "Heart Break fast !"

Elaborating further in a phone-in to her Heart Breakfast radio show with Jamie Theakston, she explained: "So basically I was trying to be a good mother, and I put my book down, I put down the Uno cards… and I said to Hollie, 'Mummy can come on that with you' and there's this like, you remember [Total] Wipeout, that TV thing?

"There's like a children's Total Wipeout thing in the middle of the sea and I thought, 'Yeah I can do that'. So Hollie was doing brilliantly and going round it. I walked around it and then crawled across like an old person, like across the difficult bits.

"And then there were these three inflatable stepping stones in the middle of the sea and everyone else was running across it and I thought, 'Oh I could do that – if kids can do it, I can do it' and I did it and I made it – I was showing off!

"I made it across to the other side and then my leg slipped because obviously it's wet, like an inflatable thing in the sea. My leg slipped and it went the other way and I felt it break and I fell into the sea and I had to swim back to the shore one-legged."

"I've broken it in two places, I've broken my fibula in two places and I was rushed to hospital and I've got a metal plate and screws in my leg which currently is the fastest and easiest way for it to heal," Amanda added.

"I haven't got a cast I've got like metal in my leg and a splint and it's all wrapped up and it's got a heartbeat in it."

Well, we do wish her a speedy recovery.
