Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey strains back lifting birthday flowers

Oprah Winfrey strained her back as she picked up bouquets of birthday flowers from Tyler Perry.

The chat show host celebrated turning 59 by relaxing at home with her partner of 27 years, Stedman Graham, on Tuesday (29.01.13), where the couple enjoyed a birthday lunch and Oprah relaxed in her pyjamas.

However, the TV personality was surprised when she received several bunches of flowers from her close pal Tyler and struggled to lift them up as they were so heavy.

She posted on Twitter: ''Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes. Enjoying lunch with Stedman . No plans to leave p.j.'s all day (sic)''

Tyler took to his Facebook profile to write a note of apology and send birthday wishes to his good pal, who had posted a photo of herself surrounded by the colourful flowers.

He wrote: ''I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry :-( Next year I'm sending her one rose. :-) (sic)''

Oprah also teased as to what fans can expect from the Super Bowl, posting: ''Putting the final touches on Super Bowl spot... Watch for it... Next Sunday (sic)''

'Crazy In Love' singer Beyonce is set to perform at the NFL showpiece on Sunday (03.02.13) and pop star Justin Timberlake is to make his first live appearance since releasing his new single 'Suit & Tie' with a performance at a pre-Super Bowl party.
