Laura Woods EXPLAINS her TV absence – she suffered gruesome cuts to her face in accident


Laura Woods has recently been away from television duties, now she reveals it is due to serious face and arm injuries she suffered while on holiday.

The 36-year-old was noticeably absent in the build-up to Tyson Fury‘s heavyweight unification bout set to take place in Saudi Arabia today.

What Happened to Laura Woods?

Woods suffered the serious injuries after a glass lampshade shattered and left deep cuts to her face and arms.

Providing a public update on her condition, Woods posted a series of painful-looking images on Instagram alongside a lengthy explanation of what had happened and the subsequent surgery she underwent.

‘Luckily, it Missed My Eye’

‘Just wanted to explain my absence from the telly for a little while, to be totally transparent and avoid any speculation. I had an accident last weekend at a holiday cottage,’ she said. 

‘I swung a pillow and hit a large, glass lampshade hanging from the ceiling above me, which shattered and cut my face and arms, but luckily missed my eye,’ she continued.

She’s Feeling Grateful

Woods went on to express her heartfelt gratitude to her boyfriend, Adam Collard and the medical staff that rushed to provide surgery on the former Sports Journalist of the Year award winner.

Her post continued: ‘I wanted to say a couple of thank yous, firstly to Adam, for being my hero that day, acting so quickly and not leaving my side since and to his family for taking care of me in a time when I was petrified. 

‘To my agents Alex Maguire and Matthew Odonohue at CAA who searched for the best help immediately. To Dr Yannis Alexandrides and his wonderful medical assistant Zuzanna at 111 who opened their emergency surgery and came in on their days off, they were so gentle and have already worked magic that I didn’t think was possible to reduce the damage.

‘I’ve added in the photos from then to now to show that even though it may look rough, it’s such a wonderful improvement already and I’m so grateful.

‘It was a hell of a shock and I’ve been a bit sad, but I’m feeling very lucky it wasn’t worse. So a big thanks to my eyebrow too, for taking the brunt of it. 

‘I’m gutted I can’t cover the fight in Riyadh tomorrow anymore, but wishing the brilliant TNT boxing team all the best. Be back soon xx,’ she added.

Laura is best known for being the host of TNT Sports’ Champions League, Premier League and boxing coverage after making the switch from talkSPORT last year where she starred as a breakfast show anchor.
