Writing for the Evening Times, he said: “I am not too sure how many lives I have left.

“I had a pretty shocking accident last week when my golf buggy drove into a tree at a fairly decent speed and I have been left with a fair few stitches in my head.

“To be honest, I am absolutely fine, although it was pretty shocking at the time.

“I obviously got a bit of a fright because there was a lot of bleeding and I went into a bit of shock. But once I got to hospital and got stitched up, I was absolutely fine.

“I am not sure the same can be said for my long-suffering family. It was just one of these things, but I am absolutely fine and raring to go again.

“I have been counting my blessings for a long time now and it was just another incident that underlines how important it is to go and live your life to the full and enjoy it.”
