Her caption read: ‘Self shot today for the first time in a while. Had totally forgotten how useful it is to just be able to record a quick couple of pieces to camera to finish off a story.

‘Was pretty pleased with lighting, sound, shot, makeup (as scars hidden), and then took a selfie of it all before dropping clip in to finish my edit. Whilst I don’t want to do all this by myself all the time, it feels good to know I can.’ 

Lara shocked fans when she unveiled images of her facial injuries from her accident, with one image showing her face in the immediate aftermath while another showed how much her face had healed six days later.

Clearly shook up from the crash, Lara declared that she would ‘never’ ride an electric scooter again.

She wrote alongside the images: ‘As an extremely clumsy person, always wobbly on two wheels, the electric scooter ride was never going to be a good idea! 

‘After being cleaned up and stitched up (2nd pic before, so not for the squeamish!), 6 days later I’m healing well, and grateful it wasn’t worse. Never again!’
