TV presenter Rav Wilding’s freak leg injury on ITV show Splash! led to a blood clot in his lung which left him fighting for his life. Last night – as viewers tuned in to the first episode – he remained seriously ill, weeks after the original accident which happened during a gruelling training session.
“He is in a really bad way right now,” said his spokesman last night. Former Crimewatch and Strictly star Rav, 36, was forced to pull out of Splash! after being diagnosed with hamstring avulsion – where part of the tendon snaps away from the pelvis.
