Lucy Alexander, 51, the former Homes Under The Hammer star, has shared that her daughter, Kitty, is currently being cared for in a rehab facility. The BBC star explained that her youngest child is receiving medical attention for her spine.

It comes after Kitty suffered from a virus that attacked her spinal cord, leaving her paralysed in 2012.

Lucy explained that her eldest is currently receiving a check-up as she undergoes rehabilitation work.

But the presenter addressed the difficulty of being holed up on a hospital ward with her teenage daughter.

Taking to Instagram stories, Lucy admitted to feeling “trapped” after having to share a room with Kitty.

“Evening all. Night three of sharing a room with my daughter Kitty. Here’s my bed. I brought my own lovely duvet,” Lucy told her 51,000 followers.

“Look at Kitty’s bed… hospital blankets. Lovely curtains. It’s quite a nice room really. We’ve got two nights to go until we can go home.”

She continued: “We can’t go off the ward because of all of the Covid restrictions. So we are literally trapped on this ward in this little area because of infection.

“But she’s doing a lot of great rehab. Lots of great things. I’m nearly ready to leave the room because when you’re in a confined space with a teenager, it can be quite difficult. Do you know what I mean?”

 

In an earlier video, Lucy enjoyed some quiet time in the garden area of the Stoke Mandeville Rehab Unit.

She began: “Hi all. It’s Tuesday. Just having a little reflective cup of tea. I’m currently at Stoke Mandeville Rehab Unit with Kitty.

“She’s got a week’s rehab so we’ve just checked in. We’re sharing a room together – mother and daughter. We’ve had our Covid tests and we’re all fine.

“We’re just here to do some checking up with her and making sure everything is well.”

Lucy added: “I’m currently sitting in a beautiful space which has been created by Jo Swift which is called Horatio’s Garden.

“You can come and sit and have tea and cake. It’s for people here at the hospital and their guests.”

On February 8 last year Lucy marked the anniversary of her daughter’s health battle with spinal condition Transverse Myelitis which left her paralysed.

She wrote on Twitter: “This date will be forever etched on my mind.”

“My daughter 9 years ago became instantly paralysed at school from a virus that attacked her spinal cord.

“What a journey it’s been. As her mum I’m just so proud of the amazing woman she has become. Kitty [love] you so much.”

In the past, Lucy has spoken candidly on daughter Kitty and her spinal paralysis.

While appearing on the podcast White Wine Question Time last year, Lucy said: “Nine years ago, my daughter, at the age of seven, become paralysed in the space of an hour.

“An autoimmune illness attacked her spinal cord instantly, and she’s now in a wheelchair.”
