She said: "I should be out filming Location, Location, Location, except yesterday, when we were in a pub in Stoke Newington, filming our start of day chat with our lovely house hunters Beth and Rory, I went off to the loo.

"And unfortunately I got something wrong and I ended up falling down an entire flight of stairs."

"It was, I think probably without a doubt, the scariest thing and most painful thing I have ever done in my life and I feel immensely blessed to be lying here in bed and not having broken anything," the star went on.

"I’m bruised and battered, and I went for an X-ray and CT scan, and I have been looked over by a lovely doctor."

Mum-of-two Allsopp said her co-star Phil Spencer would be "stepping into the breach" and that she may appear on the programme from her bed via FaceTime.

She also thanked the paramedics who "scooped" her off the floor of the pub and apologised to those she had been working with, including the sound man who had his earphones on when she fell and so had to listen to the whole thing.

The TV star admitted that when she looked back there was a "comic element" to her slip.

"At the time it was incredibly painful, it didn’t feel that comic, but when I was lying with my dress around my waist on the pub floor by the toilets, which I had been heading to, I did think, there is a comic element to it!" laughed the property expert.
