Dan Walker revealed today he has no memory of the moment he was hit by a car while riding his bike, as he prepares to return to Channel 5 News for the first time since the crash.
The broadcaster hailed 'the magic of make-up and prescription drugs' as he appeared at an awards evening last night - seemingly without a scratch - just days after the horror smash.

'But it's things like that, the goodness of people in difficult situations so I'm very grateful to be here and doing the job I love, going back on telly later.'
