Bugzy Malone has spoken for the first time after he was involved in a horror motorcycle crash, and said he's lucky to be alive.

The rapper, 29, told fans he's "lucky" after suffering "serious" injuries in the accident.

Bugzy - real name Aaron Davies - is said to have "flew" off his quad bike when it collided with an Audi in Bury, Greater Manchester.

However the chart-topping musician confirmed he is alive and well in an Instagram post tonight, and suggested "lockdown boredom" led to the frightening crash.

Bugzy admitted quarantine isn't "easy" and that boredom "causes the craziest problems" as he ignored the government's advice to stay at home.

But the star urged his fans to "be safe regardless".

He also shared a gruesome video of his sore-looking injuries while resting in a hospital bed, with stitches on his wounds and a cannula in his arm.

He penned alongside the snap: "They tell me I'm lucky to be alive but although I sustained serious injuries at the time I lost consciousness so I don't remember much, what I do remember is the none stop love, and just want to say thanks for all the well wishes and prayers you lot caught me off guard with all the support!
