Stacey Solomon, 33, has given fans a fitness update after she injured herself in the gym last week.

The Loose Women panellist took to her Instagram Stories to update her 5.7 million followers on how she was feeling after the accident, as well as insisting that she wouldn't let the embarrassing blunder stop her from carrying on her fitness journey.

Last week Stacey was running on a treadmill at the gym when she fell and scraped her knees. To make matters worse, the influencer explained that in the process of falling, her leggings had come down, leaving her exposed in front of the gym class.

Despite being injured, the mum-of-five laughed off the incident and was back exercising at the weekend.

Thanking her fans for their support, Stacey said: "I love you all so much, thanks for worrying about my knees. I mean, they've seen better days to be honest with you. They don't look great, but it's probably my pride that hurts more than my knees at this point."

Stacey continued: "However, I'm jumping back on the bandwagon. You know like they say if you fall of a horse, get back on, I'm getting back on that treadmill and I'm going to show it who's boss. And then hopefully, in time, everyone will forget this ever happened."

Stacey opened up about the incident last week, describing her fall on the treadmill as a 'humbling experience' after her sister had to step in to help her.

Stacey has been embarking on a fitness journey with her personal trainer sister Samantha, who joined her at the gym this weekend.

The presenter captioned the post: "Happy Sunday everyone. Nearly three months ago I decided to dust the cobwebs off of Joes gym stuff in the shed and give it a go & I'm so proud I haven't given up.

"Grateful for my sister who still has to drag me out of bed at 6am on a Sunday @samantha.stone1.

She continued: "I love you as much as I hate you at this point Sam."
