TV actor Kris Marshall is likely to be out of hospital in the next couple of days after sustaining a head injury in an accident, his spokeswoman said.
The 35-year-old was on a night out in Bristol city centre on Saturday when he was hit by a car. He was taken to Bristol Royal Infirmary where a scan revealed his injuries weren’t life-threatening.
A spokeswoman for the actor, who found fame in sitcom My Family and who appears in BT adverts, said he was in a stable condition.
She said: “I can confirm that Kris Marshall was involved in an accident in Bristol on Saturday night and sustained a head injury. He’s currently in a stable condition in hospital and is expected to be discharged within the next couple of days.”
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset police said: “There was a collision between a car and pedestrian shortly before 1am on Sunday. It happened in St Augustine’s Parade in Bristol city centre. A man in his 30s was taken to hospital with head injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
“Police spoke to the driver of the car involved, which was a VW Polo. He stopped immediately after the collision and we are looking into how it happened. He was not a drink driver.”
