The Only Way is Essex's Clelia Theodorou was recently involved in a major road accident, leaving her with two broken legs.
The reality TV personality, who is currently expecting her first child with partner Tommy Cole, unveiled the extent of her injuries via Instagram yesterday (August 29), alongside a selection of hospital photos.
In the caption, she wrote: "My reality - 35 weeks pregnant, two broken legs and two broken feet. Broke more bones than I even knew you had in your feet and I'll forever be setting off metal detectors at airports."
"Three surgeries later, the healing process is going well. It's a long, slow process but I'm getting there. I still have another surgery to get through and there have been hard some pushbacks, unforeseen delays and a lot of pain along the way but the main thing is our little baby is battling through it with me, keeping me going each day, making me more determined and giving me so much strength, more than I ever I thought I would have in a situation as difficult as this.
"It would be a dream to be standing, up on my feet before our bundle of joy arrives but I just have to take each day as it comes. Having never broke a bone in my body or experienced anything even close to the pain and discomfort I've been through, I'm truly proud of myself and my body for how far I've come since that day, the worst day of my life."
The 28-year-old went on to thank her partner Cole for looking after her since the accident and through her recovery.
He himself replied in the comment column, lovingly writing: "Every day that passes is better than the day before and you'll be back on your feet before you know it! Very brave to post this, you're stronger than you know and I'm so proud of how far you've come."
The Only Way is Essex airs on ITVBe and streams on ITVX.
