Knocked camera, now lens grinding when zooming

i just got a Gorillapod and was trying it out on the floor at home, taking pics at cat level, when it toppled over.

Didn’t seem like much, carried on taking photos. But when I switched off the lens made an awful noise as it retracted.

Tried it several times again - noisier than usual extending, awful grinding/whirring noise when retracting.

What have I done? And more to the point, can it be easily fixed?? This camera secondhand was all my pennies for quite some time.......😟
