Dan Walker flashes smile as he steps out for first time since horror road accident

Broadcaster Dan Walker has made his first public appearance since recovering from his horror road accident, where he was knocked off his bike by a passing car.

Sharing the news of his crash earlier this year, the former BBC Breakfast presenter, 45, shared a shocking picture of his injured and bloodied face while in the back of the accident.

Following the scary incident, he revealed that his helmet saved his life, and encouraged other cyclists to always wear one, writing: "The helmet I was wearing saved my life today so – if you’re on a bike – get one on your head."

Having since recovered from his injuries Dan headed on a night out in Mayfair earlier this week as he hosted the Royal Television Society awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel.

Dan smiled for cameras as he left the hotel at 1:15 am before heading to the Wyld Nightclub next door with two pals.

Dress for the occasion the broadcaster looked dapper as he sported a sparkling blue suit, white shirt and black bow tie.

During the award's ceremony Dan sparked a continuation of his feud with controversial broadcaster Piers Morgan, after he cracked a joke poking fun at Piers, 57.

Dan made a dig at Piers over his 2021 departure from Good Morning Britain, which happened after he stormed off set when he was grilled about his views on Meghan Markle.

Joking about being dosed up on painkillers, Walker said that he’d “lost all my inhibitions”, adding: “To give you an idea of my mental state, let me put it this way: if a weather presenter were to question me in any way, shape, or form, I’m liable to storm off stage in an enormous huff.

“I might even go as far as to start a new TV channel based entirely on my ego, which no-one will watch,” he continued.

But the gag did not go down well with Piers, who in retaliation took to Twitter on Thursday night to accuse Dan of "milking" his accident.

Piers wrote on Twitter: "If I were Dan Walker, and I’d been kicked off Match of the Day & BBC Breakfast, then washed up on Channel 5 daytime, and only got press these days by falling off a bike, getting a few grazes, and milking it like I’d survived a terror attack, I’d be this bitter too."

The tweet attracted a lot of backlash online, with Piers being accused of "one of the worst takes in history".

On Thursday night, Dan responded: "What a laugh. Interesting idea of taking a lesson on bitterness from a fella who has written article after article attacking a woman who had one drink with him & thought he was a numptie."

He then added a comment about the awards ceremony, saying: "We missed you last night. You should have come," adding a red heart emoji.
