TNT Sports' presenter Laura Woods has showed off her gory face and arm injuries as she explained her recent absence from television. The star revealed she's been recovering from surgery after suffering the serious gashes while on holiday with her boyfriend, Love Island star Adam Collard.

Fans had noticed her absence in the build-up to Tyson Fury's heavyweight unification bout set to take place in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, 18 May. The 36 year old took to Instagram to share a series of graphic images and explain the incident that led to her injuries.

She told her 756,000 followers: "Just wanted to explain my absence from the telly for a little while, to be totally transparent and avoid any speculation. I had an accident last weekend at a holiday cottage.

"I swung a pillow and hit a large, glass lampshade hanging from the ceiling above me, which shattered and cut my face and arms, but luckily missed my eye," she continued.

Laura also expressed her gratitude towards her boyfriend Adam, and the medical staff who provided her with immediate surgical care.

The TV presenter went on to say: "I wanted to say a couple of thank yous, firstly to Adam, for being my hero that day, acting so quickly and not leaving my side since and to his family for taking care of me in a time when I was petrified.

"To my agents Alex Maguire and Matthew Odonohue at CAA who searched for the best help immediately. To Dr Yannis Alexandrides and his wonderful medical assistant Zuzanna at 111 who opened their emergency surgery and came in on their days off, they were so gentle and have already worked magic that I didn't think was possible to reduce the damage.

"I've added in the photos from then to now to show that even though it may look rough, it's such a wonderful improvement already and I'm so grateful.

"It was a hell of a shock and I've been a bit sad, but I'm feeling very lucky it wasn't worse. So a big thanks to my eyebrow too, for taking the brunt of it.
