Grant Denyer is back in hospital, almost a month after he was seriously injured in a home accident.

Grant’s wife Chezzi shared an emotional update on Tuesday, where she revealed Grant was “left in significant amount of pain after hosting Dancing With The Stars grand finale show [Monday] night”.

“A little over 4 weeks ago, Grant injured his back while doing some routine work on our farm. He was diagnosed with an Annular Fissure, or ‘Disc Tear’ in his L5-S1 Disc with a disc bulge,” she wrote in the post’s lengthy caption.

Chezzi goes on to explain Grant has undergone two epidural procedures using cortisone to try and reduce his pain, however they have only offered limited relief.

“Grant attempted to return to work as he loves his job on both Channel Ten, and 2Day FM Breakfast, however after being left in significant amount of pain after hosting Dancing With The Stars grand finale show last night, he has decided to take a further two weeks off all work to be admitted to a Sports Physiotherapy Recovery Hospital to attempt to recover from his injury,” she continued.

While Grant has spent much of the past month in hospital, he managed to make a very special return to his hosting duties on Dancing With The Stars last week.

Taking to Twitter ahead of the live show, Grant said it took a “magical procedure” to get him back on his feet.

“It is so good to be back here … right in time for the business end of the series, ” the father-of-two said as the show kicked off.

“Great to be back on my feet. A bit of a unique and magical procedure has happened to get me here tonight!”

The TV host was admitted to hospital in March after a backyard accident left him with a painful bulging disc in his back.

Denyer had been using a sledgehammer to knock a star picket into the ground in his paddock when the accident occurred, leaving the star in immense pain and struggling to walk or even stand.

After being bedridden for days, the presenter was eager to get back to his hosting duties and, after getting local anaesthetic and an epidural, he was finally allowed to leave hospital. However, things took a turn for the worse the following day when the incredible pain returned and Grant was rushed back to hospital.
