Stephen Fry has been seen for the first time in public since he worried fans with a fall off stage.
Thankfully, the broadcaster is ok and back on his feet, but has been using a walking stick to keep him steady.
In his first appearance since the accident, Stephen was photographed arriving at Zoe Ball’s Friends Round Friday breakfast show on November 3.
Despite his injury a few weeks back and his new use of a wooden stick, Stephen still appeared in high spirits as he flashed a smile.
He looked as smart as ever in a pair of navy trousers, a black sweater, and a long coat, while also wearing trainers for comfort.

In September after his horror fall, details emerged with sources saying Stephen had sustained injuries to his ribs and legs after losing his balance and slipping.
It remains unknown whether the TV personality had to stay over in hospital, however, he gave an update to listeners of Chris Evans’s show yesterday.
‘I am walking with a cane at the moment, because six weeks ago, to the very day, I delivered a lecture at the O2 Arena in Greenwich for part of CogX, which is a sort of festival of ideas, you might say,’ he began.
‘And I was giving a lecture on AI, a subject which has long absorbed my interest since the 70s.

‘And I took a bow at the end and walked off stage. I don’t know why, I just walked off to the right, having come on from the left!
‘I didn’t know as I fiddled with the black curtain that there was a six-foot drop onto concrete.’
Stephen revealed the extent of his excruciating injuries.
He said that he broke his leg ‘in two places’, as well as his pelvis ‘in many places’ and ‘a bunch of ribs.’
‘So, this is my first sort of outing in the world, really,’ he told Chris.
A spokesperson for the AI and Tech festival CogX Stephen attended when he fell previously shared their hopes for a speedy recovery for him.
Organisers said they were ‘deeply concerned to hear of Stephen’s accident.’

‘We are thinking of him and wishing him a swift recovery. We have opened our own enquiry and until then we are not able to share any further details.’
Meanwhile, Greenwich Council confirmed they were ‘considering whether any further investigations are needed’ after they received an ‘acccident report’ from the arena.
