Veteran newsreader Dermot Murnaghan has been kept off the air because he has a bloody face from a hit-and-run in Kentish Town, he has announced.
The Sky News presenter and former Eggheads host posted a photograph of his bruised and grazed face to explain his recent absence from TV.
He wrote on Twitter that he was the victim of a “hit and run in Kentish Town yesterday”.
Describing the picture, he wrote: “Here’s why I haven’t been on air for 2 days”.
The 59-year-old added that the police were “fantastic”.
