EDIT - hello all. Thank you for all the lovely messages. I should have said that the main reason I posted was to thank the incredible folk who stopped and helped (although the sympathy is very cheering) so don’t worry I’m ok and being well looked after. Richard has been amazing and the kids are being very sweet ❤️ Lots of love. I ended up in a&e last night after I took a tumble from the tow path down to the side of the Thames on my bike during an evening cycle. I’ve put the photo in black and white so it’s not too gory. 🩸I am ok, just a bit bruised and sore. I want to thank the ambulance crew and the staff at west mid hospital (where I was born, as it happens) for gluing me back together. I also want to thank Lucas, Colin, Josh and Willow who were 4 runners who stopped and helped @richardjonesface and I when I hurt myself. You were so calm, thoughtful and reassuring. Thank you very much. I hope you see this message as I didn’t get your details. You’re all lovely people. Xxxx

It was during an evening cycle along the Thames that Sophie hit trouble.

She "took a tumble" from the towpath towards the river, where she was helped by four runners who happened to be passing.

Then she went to West Middlesex Hospital to be treated for injuries.

Sophie's accident comes just days after she finished up her Kitchen Disco series, which she held every Friday during lockdown.

Her husband Richard Jones filmed Sophie performing in their London home, sometimes stepping on one of their five children (ranging from aged one to 16) while doing so, and the concerts live streamed on Instagram.
