Dan Walker has amazed fans with his fast recovery following his horror bike crash last week and has plans to return to work.

The former BBC Breakfast presenter posted a health update to his Twitter today (1st March) and revealed he was doing well.

Walker, who now presents on Channel 5 News, was involved in a nasty collision last week and posted a photo of his dog Winnie to social media to thank fans for their concerns.

He told his followers: “Took Winnie for a walk and a haircut today. She’s much happier than she looks and smells gorgeous.”

The presenter added: “Face coming on nicely. Hopefully back in business soon. Thanks for all your lovely messages.”

Dan’s followers took to the comments to wish him well and congratulate him on his speedy recovery.

One person wrote: “Dan! You’re back again! Good to see you looking much much better. All the best.”

Another said: “Good to see you are recovering Dan.”

A third added: ““Winnie looks beautiful and you are looking a lot better. Take time to rest up before heading back to the day job.”

ITV’s Sally Biddulph also said: “You look so much better Dan. So good to see xx.”

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Walker opened up about the horrific crash and detailed what happened before he blacked out.

He said: “There are four lanes on 'the Waitrose roundabout', if the left-hand lane is lane one, I positioned myself where I normally go, on the left-hand side of lane three, one of the two lanes that enables you to turn right.

"I looked to my right and waited for a gap. I saw a gap, so I set off. And that is the last thing that I remember."

He then recalled waking up and seeing two paramedics looking over him.

Walker continued: "I could see myself watching the black screen and I looked as if a tiny white hole appeared in the middle of it and slowly got bigger until I could see two faces looking down on me."

He hopes to return to work soon.
