Dan Walker has hit back at Piers Morgan’s claim that he is ‘milking’ the horrific bike crash he experienced last week, calling him out for giving ‘a lesson on bitterness’.
The Uncensored host had flung the same accusation at him first, saying he was bitter and ‘washed up on Channel 5 daytime’ after being ‘kicked off Match of the Day and BBC Breakfast’.
Now Dan has clapped back with his own savage tweet, referencing Piers as ‘a numptie’ in relation to his interactions with Meghan Markle, and calling out the broadcaster’s habit of criticising the Duchess of Sussex.
Presenter Dan, 45, was struck by a car during his commute to work last week and blacked out after the terrifying accident.
After suffering nasty injuries, including facial wounds and a black eye, he later stated he was ‘glad to be alive’.
The journalist hosted his first gig since the ordeal on Wednesday, helming the Royal Television Society Awards in London.
Ahead of his first public event following the crash, Dan took the time to thank his make-up artist for ‘covering up the bruises’ ahead of the event.
He’s been absent from his Channel 5 show since the accident, the details of which he can’t recall, but wrote in The Times that he was ‘confident’ he’s not to blame.
‘I can’t really remember what they (the driver) looked like, from that moment they were looking over me as I came round, but I do recall that they looked deeply distressed and I imagine it is all they are thinking about at the moment,’ he said.
Metro.co.uk has contacted a rep for Piers Morgan for comment.
