He wrote: "Some good advice… if you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time. I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages."

Prior to his accident, Simon opened up about his experience in lockdown, and revealed that he had been enjoying staying active and keeping fit, having lost an impressive four stone in the past 12 months.

He told Terri on Extra: "I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds. I'm doing a bit of cooking. I'm exercising. Funny enough, more during this time as well, sticking to the diet.

"The only difficult thing is when Eric orders a pizza… That’s the number one thing I miss."
