“Ouch, now how to write that into the script,” a follower said.

“Oh Lynne. I hope you are ok. That’s a mess. On the plus side, it could make a great story for Irene. Hope you heal quickly, love you lots xxx,” another agreed.

“Lucky that wasn’t before the wedding!! 😅😘,” a user said.

Lynne’s only daughter Clancy McWaters married her long-time love Luke Dickson in August 2023.

In an interview with 7Life, Lynne previously shared details about her 31-year-old daughter’s wedding.

“She’s our only child and when we got told (about the engagement) in September 2021, I remember she FaceTimed me and said, ‘So we’ve got a bit of news’,” the actress said.

“I thought she was pregnant, which I wouldn’t have minded,” she added, laughing.

“She saw the look on my face and went, ‘No mum I’m not pregnant but…’ and she lifted up her finger with the engagement ring on it.”

Lynne said it was such a delightful surprise that she “thought they were taking the mickey, I didn’t believe it”.

The Home and Away star’s husband was in on the secret after their future son-in-law had asked him for his permission.

Dickson also got in touch with McWaters’ aunt and uncle, who are jewellers, to help with the ring.

“So (Paul’s brother and sister-in-law) knew and they kept it from me, which was kind of good,” Lynne explained.

“It was a lovely surprise.”

Lynne also pointed out she would have struggled to keep the secret, laughing that it is “so hard” to keep such exciting news quiet.

“Even when she told me she said, ‘Now don’t tell anyone’ and I said, ‘Can I tell my best friend?’

“She said, ‘Yes you can tell Maureen but don’t tell anyone else.’

“And I said, ‘Can I at least tell Ada?’” Lynne added.

“Clancy was like, ‘all right you can tell Ada’.”
