Broadchurch star Sarah Parish hospitalised after snowboarding accident

Amanda Holden said she will send the actress a bottle of gin as a get-well present.

Actress Sarah Parish has been hospitalised and will undergo surgery after injuring her leg while attempting to snowboard on a “cheap plastic” sledge.

The Broadchurch and Bancroft star, 49, posted a picture on Instagram of her leg in a cast on a hospital bed.

She also shared a picture and a video of herself being tended to by paramedics while lying in the snow.

“Day 2 in Winchester Hospital. Looks like I’ll be operated on today,” she told fans.

“They’re putting a bloody great big pin right through my shin!! No sleep last night, was on enough Morphine to knock the Navy out but still in pain.

“Note to self: cheap plastic sledges are for sitting in and gently trundling down primary slopes NOT a substitute for a stand up snowboard.”

On Friday, Parish had shared a video of herself sledging down a hill in her Hampshire garden in the snow.

Among the well-wishers was Amanda Holden, who commented: “Darling I just cannot believe this.”

The Britain’s Got Talent star added: “Gin on its way.”

Paris, who is also known for roles in W1A, Doctor Who and Mistresses, was recently revealed to be returning for a second series of ITV drama Bancroft, in which she plays respected yet ruthless police officer DCI Elizabeth Bancroft.
