Dan Walker has shared an update and a sweet picture of cuddling up to his dog amid his recovery from a horror bike accident.

Earlier this week the Channel 5 news presenter, 45, revealed he’d been left injured in a crash while riding his bike, and although his face was a ‘mess’ with cuts and bruises, he managed to avoid breaking any bones.

Dan first shared a selfie of his bloodied face, as well as photos from inside an ambulance where he thanked the paramedics and the police officer who helped care for him.

He’s since been sharing updates of his ongoing recovery, with recent footage also now being revealed of the shocking accident, which caught the moment of impact.

While he’s on the road to recovery, Dan has shared that he was unable to eat solid food after the accident.

In a post on Instagram, the broadcaster shared an adorable picture of his pup Winnie, cuddled up to his bruised and scratched hand.

‘Winnie hasn’t left my side this week ❤️ She’s the best,’ he wrote.

He continued with his update: ‘2 things happened today… 1. I had my first solid food since Monday 2. I ordered a new cycling helmet’.

‘Thank you for all the lovely messages & for asking how I’m doing,’ he added.

‘The swelling is going down but the body is still aching.’

Dan’s post was showered with support, with one person writing: ‘I really hope you’re feeing as ok as can be and managing to overcome the shock of it all. Also, thank goodness for helmets (and the healthcare staff) for saving our Dan! X’.

Another penned: ‘Is there any better way to recover than cuddling the dog!!’

This comes after Dan revealed that he ‘can’t do much’ with his left hand following the crash.

‘I was just thinking about tea but can’t do much with my left hand at the minute so these babies have arrived at just the right time,’ he penned via Instagram Stories, alongside a picture of some ready meals.

Following Dan’s accident, he was replaced on Monday’s 5 news by Tessa Chapman, who wished him well on his recovery as the programme came to an end.

‘All of the team wish him a quick recovery and send him all of our best wishes. Get well soon Dan,’ she said on-air.
