Jason Manford has shared ‘one of the weirdest things that has ever happened to him’ - the moment that his son was bitten by a horse.
The comedian spoke about the drama that unfolded on his family bike ride during his Absolute Radio show, telling how the horse had “mad eyes”.
He said that he and his children had stopped on their regular bike riding route to greet some horses that they were familiar with, but said he should have noticed something off about a new horse in the group.
Manford said: “There was a new horse and he had mad eyes. I should have spotted that looking back.
“It was a mad 60 seconds. I had my little boy, the two-year-old, on the seat of my bike, this horse out of nowhere lurches forward and bites my other son on the chest.
“The bruise is the worst you have seen.”
In the panic of trying to get his son away from the horse, another of Manford’s children also ended up having an accident.
He said: “That moment I left to save him and my bike fell over and the other boy fell to the ground.
“It was one of the weirdest things that has ever happened to me.”
Luckily, both boys were fine and Manford said his son had even sent a photo of the bruise to his friends to show off his battle scars.
Ever the comedian, he was unable to resist a few puns, joking: “He’s in a stable condition.”
Dad-of-six Manford also added that he’d asked his son: “Why the long face?”
The star has had an unlucky couple of months - at the end of November, he shared that a storage unit outside of his house had been broken into.
Manford joked “burglars haven’t been furloughed” as he told his fans about the theft.
