Former TOWIE star Amy Childs has thanked her family and friends for all their support after her frightening car accident.

On Wednesday night, Amy cheated death after her Range Rover flipped upside down when she apparently collided with a traffic light.

Since the scary crash, Amy - who walked away unhurt - has been inundated with well wishes and she has now thanked fans for their kind words.

Last night, Amy tweeted: "Can't believe how amazing my friends and family have been the past 24 hours, I'm so lucky to have the best family in the world."

Following the incident, Amy's car had to be towed away, as the roof and windscreen were left smashed from the impact.

Amy's rep said in a statement: "Amy is very lucky to be alive. The car is a complete write-off. She is still very shaken but feels lucky."

While the exact cause of the collision still hasn't been confirmed, police are investigating. A spokesman said: "At this early stage it is believed that the vehicle was in collision with a traffic light. There are no reported injuries at this time and enquiries are continuing."

Yesterday (16 October), many of Amy's family members visited her at home, including her cousin and TOWIE star Harry Derbidge.

Admitting he had been "so worried" about Amy on Twitter, Harry arrived to check in on her, armed with a bouquet of gorgeous flowers.

Glad to see Amy was doing well, a reflective Harry later shared an emotional tweet, he said: "There's times like this that make you realise how special your family are, love you @MissAmyChilds xx."
