Laura Anderson says a religious keepsake saved Gary Lucy's life.

Gary's car was totalled in a horror smash on Boxing Day (26.12.22) after he spent his first Christmas with new girlfriend Laura and he was lucky to come away with just an injured knee.

Former 'Love Island' contestant Laura - who met Gary on 'Celebs Go Dating' - believes a card of St Joseph given to Gary by his grandmother, saved his life.

She shared a picture of the card on Instagram Stories and wrote: "We're not religious but thank you St Joseph for saving my love.

"Gary's gran gave him this, it has words about safety and protection on the other side. I pulled it out his bag yesterday morning just before his accident."

It was previously revealed that Gary, 41, is lucky to be alive after the car crash, which ripped his front wheels off and smashed the entire front section of his vehicle.

Gary shared a picture of the totalled car on Instagram Stories and wrote: "Someone was watching over me today."

He was also able to joke about the ordeal, captioning one picture "Gary 9 lives".

Laura, 33, shared a video as they left the hospital, filming Gary as he walked on crutches after being given morphine to help with his pain.

She said: "Happy Boxing Day. We've had a lovely time, how are you feeling on your morphine?" and Gary replied: "Pretty f****** good to be fair."

She also posted a collage of their day, beginning with Christmas fun and ending with an injured Gary asleep on the couch.

She wrote: "The exciting life of the Luce. Always keeping me on my toes."
