Actress Sarah Parish, who appeared in Broadchurch and Bancroft, has been hospitalised after breaking her leg while trying to snowboard.

She posted a picture on Instagram that showed her leg in a cast and another photo and a video of herself being tended to by medics as she was lying in the snow.

Parish,49, told her 21,000 followers: “Day 2 in Winchester Hospital. Looks like I’ll be operated on today.

“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.”
