Sophie Ellis-Bextor is rushed to A&E as she shares bloody and bruised snap after nasty bike accident – The Sun

SOPHIE Ellis-Bextor was rushed to A&E after suffering a nasty bike accident last night.

The 41-year-old star shared a shocking bloody and bruised snap from her hospital bed as she explained what had happened in the post's caption.

Sophie admitted that she used a black and white filter because the picture was otherwise "too gory" to share.

In the photo, the mother-of-three is wearing a hospital gown and face mask, with a bandage secured to a cut on her forehead with tape.

Sophie has painful-looking cuts and bruises around one eye, and is holding her left forearm up to show off more gashes and grazes.

The singer  thanked members of the public who helped her and her husband, Richard Jones, when they saw what had happened.

She wrote: "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 four 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."

Sophie's concerned followers flocked to the comment section to send their love and wish her a speedy recovery.

In recent months, the star and her family have been delighting fans with weekly, glitter-filled concerts from their stunning West London home.

While the brunette beauty has been in charge of the mic, her children have also been getting involved with she and Richard mum and dad to 16-year-old Sonny, 11-year-old Kit, eight-year-old Ray, four-year-old Jesse, and four-month-old Mickey.
