The former Hollyoaks star, 41, took to social media on Friday to share a picture of his injuries as he continues to recover from the horror smash which left his car a write-off.
“So pretty,” he wrote alongside the painful-looking snap of his leg, followed by a throwing up emoji.
Despite his afflictions, he was still able to make it to Dubai where he will be ringing in the New Year with girlfriend Laura Anderson, 33.
He and the former Love Island star recently begain a new relationship after meeting while filming Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating.

Explaining that the card had been given to Lucy by his grandmother, she wrote in the accompanying caption: “We’re not religious but thank you St Joseph for saving my love.
“Gary’s gran gave him this, it had words about safety and protection on the other side. I pulled it out of his bag yesterday morning just before his accident.”
Lucy himself appeared to think someone was looking out for him too.
Sharing details of the crash on his own social media account, including two photos of the wreckage.
“Someone was watching over me today,” he wrote, joking he was “Gary nine lives”.
