The reality star shared the news to her Instagram Story on Wednesday with a close-up photo of what appeared to be her sitting in a car wearing a hospital gown, though her face was not visible. 

She wrote: "Hi guys, I've just been collected from hospital due to being in a serious car accident. I won't be responding to anyone until I can.
