Star forced to make emergency hospital dash

2014 hasn't been the best year for model and TV personality Nicola McLean, so it's highly unfortunate that the star has already spent a portion of her New Year's Eve in hospital.

The 33-year-old was forced to make a trip to Accident and Emergency after damaging her ankle yesterday.

Taking to social media to share a photo of her injury with concerned followers, the mum-of-two wrote: "In a & e waiting on an X-ray!!! I cannot stand hospitals."

When asked what happened, the former glamour model poked fun at her estranged husband, footballer Tom Williams, writing: "I rolled my ankle today #tomsfault."

It has been a difficult year for Nicola, who split from footballer Tom amid allegations that he had cheated on her. The couple were together 11 years, and have two children together.

While this is undoubtedly not how Nicola had planned to spend the last days of 2014, she can take comfort in the fact that best bud Aisleyne Horgan- Wallace is on hand to make light of the situation!

The reality star – who, herself has had a dramatic few weeks – took to Twitter to joke around over Nicola's injury.

"Can't stop laughing at the fact this beauty @NicolaMcLean is sat at home (with the bad ankle) watching…DARTs?! This is [why] I [love] her," wrote the former Big Brother star.

Here's hoping Nicola's New Year celebrations aren't totally ruined!
