Vanessa Feltz reveals her eldest daughter Allegra was rushed to hospital after suffering a fall which left her ‘in a pool of blood’

Vanessa Feltz has recalled the terrifying moment her daughter Allegra was rushed to hospital after suffering a fall which left in a pool of blood.

The broadcaster, 62, detailed the incident during an appearance on Wednesday’s This Morning, explaining that Allegra, 36, had fallen over an ‘uneven slab of pavement’ while walking home from work.

She told hosts Ben Shephard and Cat Deeley: ‘She went flying on an uneven slab of pavement.

‘She hurtled through the air and we think that she hit her face as she fell on another sticking up, jagged, uneven slab of pavement.’

Hosts Cat and Ben were visibly shocked as Vanessa shared her daughter was ‘extremely badly injured’ and was left lying in ‘a spreading pool of her own blood.’

She said: ‘Nobody knew which bit of her was bleeding,’ and revealed Allegra had to be rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

As Vanessa detailed her ordeal, she shared that Allegra was undergoing an MRI scan, as its believed that she has broken her elbow in two different places.

She added that Allegra  suffered a laceration under the chin which needed stitches, as well as a black eye and cuts all over her face and body, and that her hand and shoulder may also be broken.

Vanessa went onto share that Allegra returned home at midnight that evening, and described her daughter as ‘a broken bird.’

The star appeared on This Morning to discuss the dangers of uneven pavements and Ben asked whether she’d received any feedback from the council.

Admitting she had little updates, Vanessa said: ‘We’ve been so upset and also busy with hospitals and doctors and appointments that we haven’t given it a thought yet.’

She added that her primary concern was that her daughter was still yet to know the extent of her injuries.

‘I just don’t want anyone else to take a fall, but also you don’t want to spend all your life looking down and picking your way along the pavement like it’s an obstacle course. 

‘You want to feel safe that you can walk along the pavement for God’s sake, don’t you?’ Vanessa added.

Vanessa shares two daughters, Allegra, and Saskia, 35, with her ex-husband Michael Kurer.
