Soap star Gary Lucy jokes he has ‘nine lives’ after Boxing Day car crash | Ents & Arts News

The actor Gary Lucy believes “somebody was watching over him” after he survived an apparent Boxing Day car crash that mangled the car.

The soap star, 41, posted two pictures of a wrecked Range Rover on his Instagram story.

“Someone was watching over me today,” he wrote.

He captioned the second photograph: “Gary nine lives”.

The images showed the wrecked car by the side of a snowy road, with the front bumper destroyed and caved in and front wheels gone.

Mr Lucy is known for playing Luke Morgan in Hollyoaks, Danny Pennant in EastEnders and Kyle Pascoe in Footballer’s Wives.

He also acted as the character Will Fletcher in The Bill.

Lucy’s representatives have been approached for comment.
