Dan Walker expressed his gratitude for being alive after disclosing he came dangerously near to death in his horrific bike incident.
In February, the Channel 5 broadcaster was engaged in a nasty collision that left him injured and bloodied after being thrown off his bike by a motorist.
Dan, 46, posted photos from inside an ambulance shortly after his fall and has since kept followers updated on his lengthy rehabilitation.
He previously stated that he may need to have his teeth out and that he is unable to feel a portion of his lip.
‘I was in Sheffield town centre, I can remember arriving to the roundabout, I glanced to my righthand side, I noticed there was a gap and I walked into the gap,’ he told Helen Skelton in his current Channel 5 programme, Dan & Helen’s Pennine Adventure.
‘All I know is I got hit by a car and obviously I smashed my face up a bit, I landed really heavily on my hip.
Helen, 40, told him: ‘It would be perfectly normal and perfectly acceptable to be a bit shaken by that.’
To which Dan replied: ‘It does make you think about things you might not have said to somebody or things you want to do.
‘It resets your priorities and think what are the important things, and what do I really care about.’
He posted a series of photographs of his bleeding and battered face on social media after being transported from the site in an ambulance at the time.
‘Bit of an accident this morning. Glad to be alive after getting hit by a car on my bike,’ he wrote.
He slept for ten days before returning to his job on Channel 5’s 5 News, and he was back on his bike a month later.
Dan & Helen’s Pennine Adventure premieres Tuesday 15th August on Channel 5 at 9pm.
