She revealed back in April 2015: "[I suffered a] stress fracture – thanks to Richard who insisted we arrive by train.
"I had to trudge all the way through the station, to the terminal…all the way around. Suddenly I felt this sharp pain and by the time we got to our holiday destination – where it was raining – it had swollen up to the size of a balloon."
She added: "My doctor said it was a classic. It often happens to people trudging around at airports carrying bags."
