Lorraine Kelly has returned to host her ITV1 chat show after being trampled on by a horse.
The 52-year-old presenter was "lost for words" on her return to 'Lorraine' after two months away following the accident, which saw her lose three pints of blood from a "deep wound" in her thigh, but she admits the incident could have been "much worse".
She said: "I'm fine, I just kept telling myself you have to keep looking on the bright side and it could've been a lot worse. I could've broken bones so it could've been much worse."
Just Bieber led tributes to the Scottish TV presenter and admitted he cannot wait to return to the UK to meet her.
The 18-year-old singer said: "Welcome back to the show and I can't wait to come back to the UK and meet you."
Former 'EastEnders' stars Kara Tointon and Barbara Windsor also praised Lorraine and admit they have missed her on the show.
Kara said: "You went a step too far. Sit on that sofa and don't move for a bit. You need a rest!"
Barbara added: "Lorraine, we have missed you so much and we're so thrilled that you're back. All the girls have done so well standing in for you but there's nothing like the real thing."
Following the "incredible" tributes, an emotional Lorraine thanked everyone for their help during her absence.
She explained: "Oh my God, I'm lost for words. That was incredible.
