Channel 9 presenter Leila McKinnon has revealed that she was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

The 49-year-old shared photos to Instagram of herself in a hospital bed and some leg X-rays after suffering a serious accident.

“Hey what did you do on the school holidays? I don’t want to show off or anything but I got a fancy piercing in my knee,” she wrote.

She then asked her followers to guess how the accident occurred, giving them options.

“Did I? a) throw myself into a mosh pit to get closer to Harry Styles? b) throw myself at a mountain at high speed? c) throw myself down the stairs in a high-heel related accident?”

It’s been since confirmed that the Ninja Warrior host suffered a skiing incident, which suggests her second option is the answer.

The Today Show co-host Karl Stefanovic left a comment on Leila’s Instagram, wishing her a speedy recovery.

“Oh no Lala. That’s two of my co hosts down with dickyknees. Argh. Get well. X,” he wrote.

Karl was referring to his co-host Allison Langdon who wound up in hospital after suffering a disastrous hydrofoiling accident while on-air in February last year.

Other media personalities and talk show hosts left their well wishes as well.

“Eek. Hope it’s a speedy recovery … just think of the knitting you’ll rip through,” Tim Davies commented.

“Bugger. Knees aren’t safe at Nine. They should all be trembling,” Tracey Grimshaw wrote.

“Ohhhh noooo- ouch!!! Hope you feel better soon. Lots love,” Jessica Rowe commented.
