Denise Drysdale says she’s STILL recovering from a broken shoulder – three months after suffering a serious accident on the set of Holey Moley

Denise Drysdale has given fans an update on her health, three months after fracturing her shoulder on the set of Channel Seven’s golfing game show Holey Moley. 

Appearing on Thursday’s Studio 10, the 72-year-old comedian admitted that she’s still recovering from her injuries to this day, but luckily isn’t in pain anymore. 

‘I had a bit of an accident. I fractured my shoulder and then sat for three months, I couldn’t do anything, she lamented.

‘The hand hasn’t come back yet,’ the TV veteran chuckled, lifting up her left hand and making a claw movement. 

Studio 10 host Sarah Harris gave a concerned sigh, asking Denise: ‘Are you in pain?’ 

‘No… Pain is no stranger anyway!’ joked the funnywoman.

'I just feel so foolish': While Denise failed to reveal how she actually injured herself, the ageing star did admit that she felt very embarrassed by the accident

While Denise failed to reveal how she actually injured herself, the ageing star did admit that she felt very embarrassed by the accident.

‘I just feel so foolish… it’s the first time it’s happened though,’ she insisted.  

Denise has so far refused to publicly discuss the particulars of her accident.

Back in October, Denise told Studio 10 that she was simply ‘in a situation where she shouldn’t have been’ when she fell over and injured herself.  

‘I wasn’t playing silly buggers. It was 3.30 in the morning and a segment I was doing shouldn’t have even been considered,’ she cryptically explained. 

‘I did it, and I shouldn’t have. I’ve learned a terrible lesson to learn at my age, but it has changed my thinking – again!’

Meanwhile, TV Blackbox & McKnight Tonight host Rob McKnight speculated in October that Denise was performing her signature ‘chicken dance’ when she fell. 

‘[Denise] was playing up to the crowd and performing her infamous chicken dance on a flat part of the course,’ he revealed. 

Speaking more about the accident, he said she’d probably ‘done a dance for the crowd to keep them entertained, that’s what Denise does’.   

It is not known whether Holey Moley, which is currently airing on Channel Seven, will show the moment Denise fell down.
