KIRSTIE Allsopp has been forced to pull out of filming Location, Location, Location after the "scariest moment of my life".
The Channel 4 presenter, 52, told fans she had been left "battered and bruised" after the horror fall and was rushed to hospital in an ambulance yesterday.
"Today is Wednesday, and it's a working day," Kirstie said whilst propped up in bed at home.
She continued: "I should be out filming Location, Location, Location.
"Except yesterday, when we were in a pub in Stoke Newington, filming a chat with our lovely house hunters Beth and Rory, I went off to the loo.
"And unfortunately I got something wrong and I ended up falling down an entire flight of stairs.

"It was, I think without a doubt, the scariest thing and most painful thing I have ever done in my life and I feel immensley blessed to be lying here in bed and not having broken anything. I'm bruised and battered.
"I went and had an x-ray and a CT scan. And I've been looked over by a lovely doctor.
Kirstie went on to thank the paramedics who came to her aide and "scooped me off the floor of the pub".
She also apologised to members of the TV crew who heard her barrelling down the stairs in their ear-pieces that picked up the screams through her microphone, saying "they heard everything".

Kirstie said co-star Phil Spencer would be stepping in for her to show the couple their potential properties, adding: "Hopefully if I am feeling up to it I will facetime them to give my advice from bed."
The star said she had been ordered to get plenty of bed rest and her bruising meant that "sitting or going in the car is out of the question".
She added: "Sadly that spa weekend I was taking my sister on is no longer happening, but I am really grateful, to be honest it was quite comic …
"When I was lying with my dress around my waist on the pub floor, I thought, 'Oh my god there is a comic element to it.'
"There were so many people that were so kind and helpful, Bernie from Enfield, Hayley from New York, and you know, you rely on the kindess of strangers when you arein that situation so I am very grateful."
Kirst shared her video on Instagram and captioned it: "News from bed…stupidly I went head first down a pub staircase yesterday morning while filming @c4locationsofficial I am battered & bruised and putting my pants on is a struggle but I’ll be back on track soon. @philspencertv is stepping into the breach and is taking over with my house hunters. On L,L,L what comes first is the lovely people who give up their time to house hunt with us and we must never forget that.
