The Chase host Bradley Walsh gets put through a lot on his show Bradley and Barney Walsh: Breaking Dad, as the name implies.

But the former Doctor Who star explained that despite all the challenges that his son Barney gets him to do, it was something quite mundane that caused him the biggest injury.

Bradley revealed that he cut his head open while clog-dancing in Holland, stating (via The Sun): "After being thrown out of a plane, climbing up a wall and being thrown off a bull and everything like that, I trip up like an old twerp and whack my head on the menu."

Oh Bradley.

The latest series of the show, which was originally called Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad, kicked off in January and saw the pair travel across Europe, after two series of them going across the US.

Ahead of the show's return, Bradley went on This Morning to reveal that the show may not have happened in the first place if it wasn't for Phillip Schofield.

"We were all at a party in Portugal and you showed us a video of your mum wing-walking," Bradley said.

"Dan (Baldwin, Holly Willoughby's husband) said, 'Brad, would you do that?' and Dan said to Barney, 'Could you get your dad to do this stuff?' And that's how it started."

Bradley and Barney Walsh: Breaking Dad is available to watch now on ITV Hub.
