Footage shows Drysdale’s horror fall
Channel 7 has aired the shocking footage of Denise Drysdale being injured on the set of Holey Moley.
Drysdale was one of the stars who took part in Celebrity Holey Moley which was filmed back in October.
It was reported at the time that Drysdale had fractured her shoulder while participating in the show, but it wasn't clear exactly how it had happened.
A Eureka Productions spokesperson said at the time: "While filming Holey Moley in Brisbane last night, Denise Drysdale tripped on a putting green and sustained a shoulder injury. She is resting and receiving treatment. Denise is a national treasure and everyone is wishing her a speedy recovery."
On Sunday night, it was revealed in the TV special that Drysdale tripped while chasing an adult in a gopher costume.
Drysdale was chasing the gopher because it had just zapped her with electricity - a punishment she received for not getting her ball in the hole which was named 'Frankenputt'.
The TV legend screamed in pain after the fall and clutched her shoulder on the ground as the gopher looked on helplessly.
"I've done my shoulder," Drysdale could be heard saying. "That hurt like hell."
A team of medics attended to Drysdale and she was given pain relief before being taken off the set in a wheelchair.
Drysdale first spoke about the incident on Studio 10 not long after it happened, telling the hosts: "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. 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!"
She spoke about the incident again on Studio 10 earlier this month telling co-hosts Sarah Harris and Tristan MacManus she felt "so foolish" after the fall and was still in pain from it.
"I had a bit of an accident. I fractured my shoulder and then sat for three months, I couldn't do anything," she told them.
