Dan Walker is currently struggling to use his left hand following his grisly bike accident.

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

Sharing a selfie of his bloodied and bruised face, he also posted photos from inside an ambulance, where he thanked the paramedics and the police officer who helped care for him.

He was subsequently replaced for 5 News that evening, before admitting that he had ‘no memory’ of the incident.

The star has been updating fans on his recovery, and in his latest snap he revealed that he was having difficulty with one of his hands.

‘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.

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.

In a new tweet following his return home from hospital, the Channel 5 presenter said: ‘It’s odd to get lectured by people telling me that bike helmets aren’t important when the emergency services at the scene yesterday told me I probably wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t wearing one.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star added: ‘Funny old world! I hope you’re having a good Tuesday. Soup through a straw for lunch⛑.’

Several of Dan’s former Strictly Come Dancing co-stars have expressed their support for him, including Rose Ayling-Ellis, Tom Fletcher, John Whaite and judge Motsi Mabuse.

Even TV rival Piers Morgan reached out to him, writing: ‘Actually, a slight aesthetic improvement… glad you’re OK mate.’
