The premier took to social media over the weekend to wish Victorians a safe and happy Easter and provide an update on his lengthy recovery.

“I’m making steady progress and being diligent with my physio exercises,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Also building up my walking and am up to about 18 minutes on my daily walk.”

Mr Andrews suffered broken ribs and spinal damage after falling on wet stairs while staying at a holiday home on the Mornington Peninsula.

He was released from hospital on March 15, about a week after he fell.

At the time of the fall the premier issued a statement revealing the seriousness of his injuries after he was admitted to intensive care.
