Kate Garraway's mum was rushed to hospital during their first family holiday without husband Derek Draper after she broke her foot.
The 54 year old has whisked her mum, dad, and two children – daughter Darcey, 15, and son Bill, 11 – off to Cornwall to enjoy a much needed break after a horrific year.
But the getaway ended in a hospital dash after Kate's 78 year old mum suffered a fall during a trip to the beach and needed urgent medical attention.
Good Morning Britain host Kate took to Instagram to share the news with her one million followers, in a post where her mum posed with a nurse.
Kate wrote: "Just when you thought (hoped!) I hadn't had a new reason to thank the #nhs recently cue an unfortunate tumble from my mum on the way to the beach & and a broken foot and twisted ankle.
"Thanks to the typically wonderful #nhs team at #bodmin hospital and particularly wonderful Ruth we managed to get her booted and safely home for further treatment.
"You were all so kind – thank you so much. And thanks to @peugeotuk (again) for lending us a car with enough room for her to keep her leg stretched out for the whole journey (although it did mean my Dad was relegated for the first time ever to the back seat, where he really enjoyed defining the expression 'back seat driver'!!!)"
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Kate's famous pals were quick to comment with her co-host Charlotte Hawkins writing: "Oh no, your poor mum! Sending love."
One fan commented: "If anyone needs a break and some good luck it’s you Kate! Your positive attitude throughout is amazing."
A second said: "Gosh you've been through so much! Sending love and get well wishes to your lovely mum and positive continued healing vibes to derek."
Whilst a third wrote: "Hope your mum recovers quickly. So sad to read this."

Kate had previously admitted she was "emotional" about taking her children on their first family holiday without Derek as he recovers from complications due to coronavirus at home.
She shared a sweet video of daughter Darcey and son Billy playing football together with her parents as the sun set behind them.
Kate wrote: "Thanks to the wonderful mum dad & sisters draper for coming down to be with Derek (with nurses too of course) so I could take my mum, dad, Darcey & Billy to Cornwall.
"And thanks so so much to @peugeotuk for lending us a car to get us there! We got to see my brother aunts uncles cousins & new baby cousins!
"None of us have been able to get to see each other since Xmas 2019.
"So much love & v emotional – not that it made our annual football match any less competitive!!! Hope you have all had a great #halfterm."
