Simon Gregson's car has been written off.

The 47-year-old actor - who is best known for playing taxi driver Steve McDonald in 'Coronation Street' - took to Twitter to reveal that an "unfortunate lady" had left a "minor dent" in his motor while it was parked, but the insurance company had written it off.

He tweeted: "So a nice unfortunate lady hit my car today when it was parked up. Very minor damage just a dent and my insurance company wrote it off! wtf is that about. (sic)"

The former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' star - who has who has sons Alfie, 14, Harry, 12, and six-year-old Henry with his wife Emma Gleave - added that he will now be changing providers, but acknowledged that he is suffering "no loss" because the car is being repaired by the other party.

He added: "Time to change providers me thinks. Car now being repaired by her insurance so no loss!"

In February, it was revealed Simon was in talks to host a motoring show.

He said: "I'm very good friends with Mike Brewer and Paul Cowland and Drew Pritchard, who all do car shows, of course.

"And we're actually in talks at the moment about possibly getting something off the ground. So fingers crossed."

And the star also explained he would "absolutely love" a presenting slot on the BBC's flagship car programme 'Top Gear'.

He said: "I’d absolutely love to [host 'Top Gear']. Ever since I could push a little car around the carpet they have been a huge passion of mine. And yeah, it’s just the best job in the world to present that show."
