"Hi, quick one to ease some of the panic from my friends and family and anyone else who has messaged, thank you so much," she said. "I'm absolutely fine.

"There was a car accident yesterday, I was in it, it looked pretty bad. Nobody was hurt, thankfully. We crashed into an ambulance... Anyway, they were amazing, everyone was amazing.

"I did have to go to hospital just as a precaution but I was out yesterday evening and, yeah, I took a day off – absolutely fine. Both drivers, fine. Yeah, don't know what else to say. Thank you and sorry if anyone panicked. I panicked a bit when I saw it! So, anyway, thank you again."
