Posting on social media at the time, she explained she underwent treatment after her optician noticed that she had a detached retina.

Her recovery required her to wear an eye-patch, meanwhile, and resulted in her needing time off to allow her vision to come back.

But yesterday, Lucy shared an early morning snap of herself preparing for work as she smiled whilst sitting next to a number of 'Get Well' cards.

Addressing her 33,000 followers on the platform she wrote: "Filming for Wales Today once I’m out of my PJs, first time in 3 months. Thank you so much for all your lovely messages, kept me going! These get well cards came from ⁦@tyhafan, @CP_Cymru⁩ and my beyond supportive twitter friend ⁦@siobhanx3. Thank you."

Fans were quick to express their delight at news of her comeback, with one commenting: "That's so good to hear. Looking forward to seeing you again on Wales Today."

Another responded: "Be great to see you back Lucy, missed you. Hope your feeling a lot better."

A third wrote: "Nice jim jams! Hope you are recovering well. Makes us realise the importance of having good eyes/sight."

And a fourth added: "Very very good news Lucy. Will be so lovely to see you again. I’m sure many will agree with me when I say 'I’ve missed you terribly'!"
