Poor Lucy Mecklenburgh has been in a pretty horrific accident as part of new Channel 5 show, Tour De Celeb.
Just a week after it was reported that fellow contestant Hugo Taylor suffered a nasty injury on the same show, it’s now been revealed that TOWIE star Lucy had such a bad accident that it left her poor dad ‘hysterical’. No!
Louie Spence, who’s also competing in the new reality show, told The Sun: ‘Lucy had a really nasty fall.’
‘She was riding on her bike and her dad was on the other side of the road’, he continued. ‘A car went past and she wobbles and fell off. The van was coming from behind and swerved. We thought it had gone over her!’
Crikey. Sounds terrifying.
Louie went on to explain that Lucy’s fall was so bad that her dad was inconsolible as he watched from the sidelines.
‘Her dad was hysterical’, Spence added. ‘It was a near miss bit it was frightening. I think she’s been left pretty shaken.’
Poor lamb! Thank goodness she’s okay.
The show, which has been likened to The Jump, will feature celebrities such as Jodie Kidd, rugby-boy Austin Healey, Olympian Amy Williams, former cricketer Darren Gough and TV presenter Angelica Bell, and will kick off this month.
Stay safe, people!
