A Place In The Sun's Danni Menzies feared she wouldn't work again after horror crash

Danni Menzies has bravely opened up about her recovery just five months after she was knocked down by a stolen moped.

The former A Place In The Sun presenter who stepped down after six years, 35, was blue-lighted to hospital after two women who had been attempting to steal the motorcycle ran her over, leaving her unconscious on the pavement.

Danni was left with post-traumatic vertigo nd suffered from severe facial wounds, which she says made her worry she wouldn't work again.

Throughout her recovery, Danni documented her journey on social media but told the Mirror that there are pictures which were too gory to share with her fans.

Speaking exclusively to the Mirror, she said: "I had that accident last year and that kind of put life on hold for a little while and I had to kind of work my way through that.

"It was obviously quite traumatic so I had quite a lot of downtime so now, getting back to it and being on stage and being out filming, I'm actually so grateful and appreciative, I've got a new newfound appreciation and gratitude for being busy."

Reflecting on her recovery, Danni went on to explain: "I think definitely having a few months rattling around my house healing, I was like 'Oh my God, I just want to be doing stuff.'

"And also that worry of my face didn't look very good, I was like 'Am I going to work again? Is this going to get better?'

"I was really worrying about it but luckily it healed up well and I'm busy again."

Speaking from the Ideal Home Show, Danni explained her initial worry, saying: "I've obviously got a scar on my face now which I've been getting a lot of treatment and having used a fringed cap to cover it.

"I was a bit worried about if people would want to have me on screens after that happened, especially straight after, it was pretty nasty for a while."

Moments after coming off stage at the show held at Olympia London, Danni said: "It's been pretty good fun, it was really nice, I had a queue of people wanting to chat with me afterwards.

"It's just really sweet actually getting to talk face to face and be involved and hear people's plans for moving abroad."

However, she joked she was extremely excited about being sent a vegetable pot for her kitchen to grow her own tasty treats at home.
