Despite her return, Ally is still not yet fully recovered as she still wears a large brace over her knee and leg and requires both a wheelchair and crutches to get around.

The journalist had to be pushed through Channel Nine’s studios in a wheelchair as she balanced a pair of crutches on her lap.

When Karl joked “Where have you been?”, his co-host replied: “Just went to the ladies room if you don’t mind. Took me a bit longer to get back than I thought it might.”

While she has mostly kept the extent of her injuries private, she revealed to KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show that she’d suffered a broken leg and a dislocated knee, among other injuries.

“I’ve done a right royal job on it,” Allison said.
