    Dan Walker is "glad to be alive" following a horror collision with a car.

    The former BBC Breakfast star, who presented the morning programme for six years until 2022, was out on his bike when he was hit by the vehicle and was quickly rushed to hospital.

    Sharing a photo of himself in the back of an ambulance, the 45-year-old had blood pouring from his face as he gave his followers a look at his nasty injuries.

    Alongside the trio of snaps, he wrote: "Bit of an accident this morning. Glad to be alive after getting hit by a car on my bike.

    "Face is a mess but I don’t think anything is broken. Thanks to Shaun and Jamie for sorting me out and the lovely copper at the scene."

    He signed off the post by saying: "This is my smiling [laughing emoji] Thankful for our NHS [red heart emoji]."

    It wasn't long before the Channel 5 star's friends and followers gathered in the comments to send their well wishes.

    "Hope you’re all good, Dan. Hell of a hit that!," penned one user.

    Another person added: "Blimey, Dan. That looks painful. Glad you're ok, in the grand scheme of things. Recover well!"

    "Simply awful, so sorry Dan. Hate my boys out cycling, I’m on tender hooks and this is why. Recover soon pal and hope it’s just cuts and bruises," wrote a third.

    Someone else shared: "So glad you are OK Dan, what a shock. Rest up and feel better soon."

    While a fifth echoed: "Gosh! Glad you’re ok, what a shock that must’ve been. Hope you feel better soon x."
