Sophie Ellis-Bextor is rushed to A&E

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has been rushed to A&E after falling from her bike while riding close to her family home.

The singer was left with nasty cuts and bruises to her head and arms after falling from her bicycle during a ride along the Thames with husband Richard Jones on Tuesday evening.

Taking to Instagram after receiving treatment, Sophie, 41, admitted she could only share an image of her injuries in black and white because they were too graphic for social media.

Addressing followers, 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 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.’

The singer, best known for her 2000 Groovejet collaboration Murder On The Dancefloor, has been isolating with Richard and their four children since lockdown began in March.  

But she has been doing her bit to keep fans entertained on social media by conducting a live singalong in her family home every Friday night.    

She has been in charge of the mic, singing her own hits, with tweaks, and cover versions of some of her favourite tracks.

Reflecting the decision to let people into her home via social media in May, the traditionally private singer told the Daily Mail: ‘It has been quite surreal, hasn’t it? But this whole situation is surreal, so I guess it has been fitting.

‘We’ve had all sorts — the kids joining in, or sitting there bored with it all as I dance around them. We’ve had the baby crawling across the floor, trying to pull the plug out of the router. It’s not stuff you normally have to contend with when you go on stage.’

Surprisingly, the singer ensures her children, Sonny, 16, Kit, 11, Ray, eight, and Micky, 16-months, all get in on the act during her weekly singalongs. 

And she admits their presence has aided their popularity.

She added: ‘I think what has kept some people tuning in is the music, but others are only watching to see if any of my kids injure themselves.’
