Anton Danyluk feels "blessed to be alive" after he was involved in a car crash in Dubai.

The former 'Love Island' star - who took part in the 2019 series of the ITV2 dating show - shared a picture of his smashed motor, and he reassured fans he was "OK" and he felt "so grateful" nobody else was injured.

Anton wrote on Instagram: "Those who drive in Dubai will know the drivers are mad out here, always rushing about.

"You have to have eyes in the back of your head.

"Feeling blessed to be alive after this last night.

"I will update you all later as to what happened, but I'm ok just feel so grateful that no one was hurt (sic)"

The 24-year-old star later claimed he had crashed into a bus after the vehicle "braked hard" because it "went over a speed bump".

He said: "So basically last night when I was driving home from the gym, a bus came across me, I've had a lot of messages people know what it's like.

"The guys who drive in Dubai are just always in a rush to get places and basically a bus came across me and he's braked hard because he's went over a speed bump.

"Then I've went into the side of the back of him, and I don't know how I'm OK - air bags are obviously a good thing.

"But yeah, I'm OK. We move, car's damaged but obviously it's a rental anyway so it doesn't really matter.

"Wouldn't matter anyway, main thing is that I'm OK so thank you for the love."

In February, Anton revealed he had opened a gym and fitness business in Dubai after initially heading there on a working trip to promote a hotel.

He said: "I came to Dubai in December when travel restrictions weren’t in place - it was a working trip to promote a hotel.

"I got to know the owner, and then the opportunity rose to open a gym and fitness business in Dubai.

"I’ve got my working visa, so I’m not coming home."
