Talking to Dr Hilary Jones, Kelly said: "I had a wee operation on my shoulder, it’s been annoying me for ages."

She further detailed her procedure and recovery over the Christmas period: "I just had to remove some calcification and a little bit of bone and, yeah, I’m doing my physio and I’m all fine.

"But we had a really quiet one at Christmas and New Year. Rosie and Steve looked after me and Rosie obviously takes after me in the cooking department, not."

Despite saying she was looking after herself, Kelly did confess to enjoying an alcoholic beverage or two over Christmas: "Yes, you said it was alright to have one or two. I was actually very, very well behaved and I’m fine and I’m doing lots of different exercises, I’m getting there."

Kelly wasn't the only ITV star battling with health issues over Christmas as Good Morning Britain's Richard Madeley revealed he was sick all over the holidays.

Madeley told Good Morning Britain viewers: "I had that [superbug] all Christmas for a month. Never had anything like it before. In fact, I’m beginning to wonder if there’s a new strain of Covid going around."

He added: "I took a test every week, it was always negative, but I can’t help thinking that’s what I had."
