Loose Women host Kaye Adams was left unable to walk upstairs after injuring her knee at a tough fitness class.
The presenter, 60, revealed that her leg gave way while walking through London two weeks ago.
Speaking on her How to be 60 podcast, Kaye said: “It was awful. My leg just gave up on me. I was in the middle of London. I was walking from Goodge Street to Bank and my leg literally stopped working.
“It was so embarrassing; I couldn’t get up the stairs at the tube station. You know when you put one leg up first and then you drag the other up, you look like Frankenstein’s Monster.
“I just couldn’t understand what was happening to me. Usually at a tube station I flamboyantly skip up and down the stairs – ‘look at me, I’m 60 and I’m skipping!’”
Kaye sustained the injury at a high intensity F45 workout. Designed to improve strength and endurance, the tough 45-minute classes are seen as one of the most time-efficient ways of training and burn up to 750 calories a session.

The broadcaster, who launched How to be 60 last year, admitted: “I’m too old for them. It’s heavy duty circuit training, weights, burpees, all that sort of stuff.
“I’m twice the age of everybody else in the class and I’m really starting to feel it and now I’m going to have to go back and underneath my lycra leggings I’m going to have an elastic bandage – it’s just going to look f*****g tragic.
“It’s sore. And the worst thing is that it was all puffy and there’s nothing more ageing than a puffy knee. An elastic bandage on your knee and you’re old.”
She joked with her How to be 60 co-presenter Karen MacKenzie: “I thought I was going to have to call you up and ask to borrow your Nordic walking sticks!”
