Lisa breaks toe in the Algarve after stairs fall

Socialite Lisa Murphy may be tripping down the aisle to marry legal eagle Gerald Kean next year, but she has had a fall of another kind that left her hobbling around on crutches in the Algarve.

Her fiance Gerald revealed how Lisa had an unfortunate tumble before heading off on their whirlwind trip away.

"It actually happened in Dublin, she fell up the stairs," he explained. "We didn't think it was that serious at the time but it was giving her a bit of trouble when we came to Portugal so I made her get it checked out. It turns out that she has a broken toe, which is unfortunate."

The pair have spent the past few days enjoying themselves in the sun-kissed holiday destination -- and mingling with some esteemed company, namely Portuguese soccer legend Luis Figo.
