GB News presenter Ellie Costello has revealed she’s recovering after being involved in a car crash.
The southeast reporter sustained whiplash, bruised ribs, and back injuries after the collision, which took place on Saturday, and has been absent from the broadcaster since.
Ellie shared a selfie from the hospital on Twitter as she addressed why she had been missing from hosting duties.
‘Apologies for being absent from @GBNEWS,’ she penned. ‘On Saturday our stationary car was hit by a driver in the wrong lane. I’m at home recovering from whiplash, bruised ribs & back injuries.
‘I am very lucky. Thank you to my brilliant friends, family, colleagues & the NHS for their kindness.’
Ellie’s GB News co-stars flocked to wish her a speedy recovery, with Josh Rom writing: ‘Sending you all the love and virtual hugs in the world!!’
Echoing a similar sentiment, Dan Wootton added: ‘Oh no Ellie. Thank God you’re OK. Hope your recovery is speedy.’
GB News began broadcasting in June, promising to offer an alternative to news providers such as the BBC and Sky News and take on so-called cancel culture.
A number of big names joined the channel for its launch including ITV News journalist Alastair Stewart, BBC journalist Simon McCoy and former Labour MP Gloria De Piero.
Guto Harri quit GB News in July following a row over him taking the knee during a debate on the racism directed towards England football players, while other staff members have reportedly left.
Last month Andrew Neil stepped down from his roles as the chairman and host of a prime-time show on the channel.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said he ‘came close to a breakdown’ during his time at GB News after suffering from stress due to the fledgling station’s technical problems.
