It breaks my heart to say I am having to take some time out.

She wrote beside it: "It breaks my heart 💔to say I am having to take some time out and won’t be able to continue with my role in 9-5. Due to a nasty fall I have only gone and fractured my wrist and got 10 (yes 10) stitches in my chin. 🤕."

The 44-year-old mum-of-two went on: "Following my doctors orders- they have said I will be ok but as they say in the theatre 🎭 'the show must go on' and I wish the rest of the fabulous cast an amazing opening night and I will be back on that stage for 9-5 before you know it. 💔😢💔."
