TV presenter Lorraine Kelly has returned to the screen, seven weeks after a horse-riding accident, and told viewers: "It's good to be back."

As she hosted her ITV1 show once more, Kelly received "welcome back" messages from stars such as Justin Bieber, The Wanted and Ronan Keating.

The 52-year-old was in hospital for more than a week after falling from a horse and then being trampled by the animal. She had to undergo surgery for a deep wound on one of her thighs.

Kelly said she had now recovered, and was pleased her injuries had not been more extensive.

"I'm fine. I just keep telling myself 'You've got to look on the bright side'. I could have broken bones. It could have been so much worse," she said.
