Rav Wilding was left 'in a bad way' after sustaining a serious injury during filming for ITV1's Splash!

Today's Mirror reports that as viewers tuned in to the first episode last night (4 January), Rav remained seriously ill - weeks after the original accident.

At the end of last year, Rav revealed he'd been forced to pull out of training. But now we have learnt that Rav's problems were worse than originally thought.

The TV presenter's leg injury on the diving show led to a blood clot in his lung which is said to have left him fighting for his life.

"He is in a really bad way right now," his spokesman told the newspaper.

The former Crimewatch and Strictly Come Dancing star, 36, was diagnosed with hamstring avulsion - where part of the tendon snaps away from the pelvis.

He had surgery before Christmas, and was back home a week ago appearing to recover well. On 29 December, his fiancé Jill Morgan - a producer for Loose Women - posted a picture of Rav smiling in a wheelchair.

She wrote the message: "taking his new wheels for a spin."

But, on New Year's Eve, the Mirror reports Rav was rushed to hospital with chest pains. He was eventually diagnosed with a blood clot, caused by post-surgery complications and put on medication.

Last night, thanking fans for their support, Jill tweeted: "Glad to finally have @RavWilding home from hospital. Week from hell..."

We hope you get well soon Rav!
