Love Island star Chris Hughes has opened up about being involved in a car crash on the motorway earlier this week which left him suffering a neck injury.

The 2017 Islander broke the news to fans on his Instagram story yesterday as he shared footage of him waiting by the side of the road in the aftermath of the accident.

Chris also posted a picture of a “get well pack” that his girlfriend Annabel Dimmock had left for him after he was left with a “sore” neck from the crash, which left his car worse for wear.

Alongside a picture of some painkillers, a bottle of muscle rub and a drink, as well as a handwritten note from Annabel which read, “For my brave boy,” Chris wrote, “Had a crash on the motorway last night and my car’s in a sorry state, neck’s sore but home to this 🥰”.

The next post on his Instagram story was a video of him taken after the crash which showed Chris waiting on the motorway next to his car. He captioned the clip, “Not fun, but two amazing people stopped to help and they were the best. One was in the RAF and the other just came from work, so thanks both."

Chris and golfer Annabel went Instagram official with their relationship last summer and the reality star later gushed about her in an exclusive chat with heat.

He told us, “She feels like she’s a best friend. I’ve obviously met lovely girls, but I’ve never had that connection where you want to spend every second with somebody. I’ve been waiting for that. It came along and it’s nice to get those butterflies again.”

Chris is even already planning marriage and kids as he added, “In the future that’s something I want, but not something that I feel I need to rush into. That comes with time and when it feels right.”
