In the message, that was recorded from her bed, she explained: "Hey, I thought I should give a bit of an explanation about my foot, I was out walking the dog yesterday and I thought I'd run down these steps. I think I must have tripped on a root or something, and oh my god it hurts so much. I sort of twisted my foot, anyway I can't flex it upwards!" Ouch!

Donning workout gear and rocking a radiant makeup-free look, Davina told fans: "I have made myself a commitment. From 1 November I'm going to cut out refined sugar, fruit and honey for the first couple of weeks to try and get myself off sugar again. I've massively fallen off the sugar-free wagon and it's ugly."

"I don't want to do it anymore," the star continued. "It makes me feel rubbish and it makes me feel super bloated."

The former Big Brother presenter went on to admit that going cold turkey on the sweet stuff was the "only way" she could get herself back on track. "The shame of not sticking to it is what will keep me going [laughing emoji]", she penned.
