Much-loved Seven Sharp co-host Hilary Barry has broken her ankle.

Barry was conspicuously missing from Friday night's broadcast with covering presenter Carolyn Robinson telling viewers her disappearance was due to "unfortunate" circumstances.

"We received a call from our Hilary late last night. Now she was in the A&E getting an X-ray after rolling her ankle and it turns out poor Hilary has broken that said ankle," Robinson said on Seven Sharp last night.

Barry was in a cast and recuperating at home, but had an important message for viewers, Robinson said.

"She wants us to know, not a drop of alcohol passed her lips."

Photos supplied to TVNZ showed a cast up to Barry's knee, while she hobbled on crutches albeit with a large grin on her face.

Another, pre-cast, showed a puffy ankle.

"Goodness gracious, that ankle is almost bigger than the foot," co-host Jeremy Wells remarked.
