During the three-hour broadcast of Seven’s Carols In The Domain, Grant Denyer was forced to lie on a trestle table in between camera appearances to manage the pain.
It followed his disastrous monster truck accident in September which he says very nearly ended his career.
“I felt as though I’d lost everything I achieved. I felt like I’d lost my position in the TV marketplace and it was emasculating as well. I couldn’t wine and dine my partner and do all those gentlemanly things that you like to do,” he told the Sun Herald.
He is “pumping” to get back on television this year but says: “I’m not going to drive a monster truck again but I’m not going to give up motor racing by any stretch of the imagination.”
Denyer returned to screens for Seven’s Christmas event, co-hosting alongside Kate Ritchie.
“My dad used to say that if I ever hosted Carols I would have made it in television . . . so it was the perfect thing to come back for,” he said.
