Former Emmerdale and Coronation Street star John Bowe was left badly injured with a broken shoulder after he took a nasty fall from the top of a ladder and was rushed to hospital.
The actor, known for playing Lawrence White and Duggie Ferguson in the soaps – both characters who met violent ends – took to Twitter to share his injuries, including a ‘Star Of David’ bruise to his forehead.
He told his followers: ‘I’ve had an accident. I’ve broken my shoulder but more intriguing is the “Star of David” I’ve acquired on my forehead. Fear not. I shall survive. 2020. What a year.
Corrie star Charlie Lawson commented on his friend’s post to ask him what had happened and John replied: ‘Never work at the top of a ladder without assistance.’
He later gave an update, adding: ‘Thank you so much for all your kind messages.
‘They ease the pain. (Not really!) And I must thank the ambulance crew who rescued me and took me to Harrogate Hospital, where Larissa the nurse and Doctor Sarah looked after me. God bless the NHS. JBx.’
Earlier in the year, John battled coronavirus and said that he ‘almost died’ from the illness.
He was written out of Emmerdale in 2018 when Lawrence was killed in a brutal car crash.
