Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor was rushed to hospital following a bike crash in London.

The 41-year-old was riding by the Thames when she fell off her bike and sustained several cuts and bruises.

Ellis-Bextor took to social media to show fans the injuries she had sustained, which she deemed too ’gory’ to show in colour.

She said: "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."

Ellis-Bextor then later added: "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."
