Una Foden will try to mask her pain, as she makes her debut in Splash! next week after breaking her toe while practicing her swimming pool techniques. Confirmed as one of the main celebrities for Tom Daley’s new series, Una will try and rehab her broken toe to move forward.
“Una has been putting everything into her training but is having to take it as easy as possible right now because she’s in a lot of pain,” sources tell Mirror. ‘She wasn’t even jumping off the board when it happened. She was practicing landing in foam in a ‘dry dive’ area and her foot just buckled.’
Una then turned to Twitter, tweeting: ‘I’ve had a broken baby toe for a couple of weeks. I know it’s the poorest excuse for a moan ever but boy does it hurt.’

What to Know About a Broken Toe
Although most people try to avoid foot trauma such as banging, stubbing, or dropping heavy objects on their feet, the unfortunate fact is that it is a common occurrence. Given the fact that toes are positioned in front of the feet, they typically sustain the brunt of such trauma. When trauma occurs to a toe, the result can be a painful break (fracture). Another type of trauma that can break a toe is repeated activity that places stress on the toe for prolonged periods of time.
Symptoms of a Broken Toe
- throbbing pain
- bruising on the skin and toenail
- the inability to move the toe with ease.
- toe appears crooked or disfigured
- tingling or numbness in the toe
- injured person experiences fever or chills throughout their body, and when there is an open, bleeding wound present on the toe.
Generally, a minor toe break will heal without long-term complications, but it is important to discontinue activities that put pressure on the toe. It is best to stay off of the injured toe with the affected foot elevated on pillows. Swelling can be alleviated by placing an ice pack on the broken toe for 15 minutes every two hours then taping the two toes together with medical tape.
