The Good Morning America star took to Instagram at the start of the week to reveal what happens backstage on the ABC daytime show, with footage of her dancing in the studio with co-host Rebecca Jarvis.

Due to her injury, Lara was sitting down on a chair as she swayed to the music, while Rebecca danced alongside her.

The mother-of-two tore her plantar plate and ligament in her foot, which resulted in her having to get a boot just before Christmas.

She shared a lengthy post on Instagram at the time, detailing what had happened. It read: "Not the boot I was hoping for this Christmas!!! BUT I did get some shiny new wheels (swipe to see my sexy scooter!!).

"A torn plantar plate and ligament in my foot that's been slowly getting worse and worse FINALLY fixed by the magnificent Dr O'Malley at HSS today. Didn't want to miss my daughter's last soccer season or the holidays, so here we are! Rollin' into 2023 like....... well, I'm not exactly sure but it should be interesting at work."

"I can't put weight on my left leg for 5 more weeks if I am lucky and even then will still be wearing this book for another 5 BUT I can stay in shape in the meantime," she wrote: "This is a great ab buster! 3x 30 seconds each leg.
