17-year-old Lloyd Daniels who took part in last year’s X Factor was injured in a car crash last Friday, his mother has confirmed.
Lloyd, who only passed his driving test five weeks ago, was knocked unconscious and suffered whiplash, bruising and burns. He was rushed to hospital for X-rays and is now recovering at home with his family in Wales.
The crash happened shortly after Lloyd was dropped off fellow X Factor contestant and housemate Lucie Jones outside a London tube station.
His mum Lisa told The Daily Mail:
“We just thank God it was not much worse.
“He is a really careful driver. He has only just passed his test so he wants to look after his licence and not get any points.
“He’s still recovering. He’s got quite bad whiplash, his chest is all bruised and he was in shock. He was really upset.”
His mum went on to reveal that she hopes the accident won’t put Lloyd of off driving, saying that he is “a fighter and will get back on the road soon.”
