Former BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, 45, has amazed fans with his speedy recovery following his horrific bike crash. The Channel 5 News star posted an optimistic health update in view of his 796,100 Twitter followers today.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star, who was involved in a nasty collision last week, posted a cute pic with his dog Winnie on social media.
While he was still looking a bit worse for wear, the scarring and bruising to the journalist’s face had dramatically improved.
“Took Winnie for a walk and a haircut today,” Dan told his followers.
“She’s much happier than she looks and smells gorgeous,” he added with a laughing emoji.
“Face coming on nicely. Hopefully back in business soon.
“Thanks for all your lovely messages,” the presenter concluded with a heart emoji.
Dan’s followers took to the comments section to congratulate him on his speedy recovery.
Phil wrote: “That’s a fast recovery mate. Nice. Hope you’re doing well.”
While ITV’s Sally Biddulph commented: “You look so much better Dan. So good to see xx.”
“Good to see you are recovering Dan,” added Paul.
Ed penned: “Dan! You’re back again! Good to see you looking much much better. All the best.”
“Winnie looks beautiful and you are looking a lot better. Take time to rest up before heading back to the day job,” added Jo.
Dan is continuing to spend some time off from Channel 5 News as he heels from his accident, which took place last Monday at a Sheffield roundabout.
In a lengthy column with The Sunday Times, Dan opened up about the terrifying crash one week on.
He spoke about how it had been a normal Monday that suddenly resulted in a painful accident, detailing everything he remembered before his memory went blank.
“There are four lanes on ‘the Waitrose roundabout’,” he said. “If the left-hand lane is lane one, I positioned myself where I normally go, on the left-hand side of lane three, one of the two lanes that enables you to turn right.
“I looked to my right and waited for a gap. I saw a gap, so I set off. And that is the last thing that I remember.”
Dan then recalled how he woke up seeing green – only to realise he was being seen by two paramedics.
He continued: “I could see myself watching the black screen and I looked as if a tiny white hole appeared in the middle of it and slowly got bigger until I could see two faces looking down on me.”
Dan, who joined Channel 5 last year after leaving BBC Breakfast, hopes to return to work as soon as possible.
