A Place In The Sun’s Danni Menzies reveals extent of facial injuries after being hit by moped

A Place In The Sun's Danni Menzies has revealed the shocking extent of her facial injuries after being hit by a stolen moped in October 2022.

The 31 year old star was knocked unconscious during the horror smash and left with two black eyes, a bloody cut on her eyebrow and a graze running from her nose and across her lip.

Danni shared the images of her injuries to her Instagram story three months after the crash occurred as she wrote: “I don’t want to trigger anyone but wow. I’m only just looking back on what went on a few months ago. Mental.”

She added: “Couldn’t even think about sharing any pics at the time.”


The crash occurred when two females attempted to steal the moped in Battersea, London and drive off with it, before losing control and hitting Danni at a speed of 30mph.

After being hit, Danni was left covered in blood outside a newsagents before being rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

She was left suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder and post-traumatic vertigo following the incident.

The Scottish star took a break from social media, telling fans: “Sooooo…. On Saturday I was taken out (on the pavement!) by a stolen moped that lost control.

“Didn’t see it coming and it’s not looking pretty right now tbh.

“I’m sure I will be fine in a few weeks but in the meantime I will be a wee bit quiet on here," before joking she'd cut her fringe at the right time to cover her scar.

Danni was a presenter on Channel 4's A Place In The Sun from 2016 to 2022, before she announced she was leaving to pursue other opportunities.

She explained that she'd decided it was time for change after calling it quits with her boyfriend at the time, with the pair finding it difficult to maintain a long-term romance when Danni was constantly flying out to exotic locations to film the show.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Danni said at the time of her news: "I’ve left the show about a month ago, I’ve done it for six years and it’s about time for a change and there were quite a few things that were hard to do when I was doing the show, like have a relationship."

Explaining why she found dating tricky while working on the show, she added: "Like when you go on a date you’re packing your bag every week doesn’t really happen, so I just thought it’s time for a change."

She went a step further as she revealed that she had just broken up with her boyfriend, saying: "I actually broke up with someone yesterday – it was s**t."

"I think it was the right thing. Men are intimated by me, I don’t know why, I’m really nice," the star added.
