Comedian John Bishop has revealed he was involved in a car crash when he swerved to avoid a “big chicken”.

The Doctor Who star, 54, said he was driving through Wales on his way to catch a ferry to Ireland when the crash happened.

He shared photos on Instagram of a Land Rover smashed into a post at the side of the road with a broken windscreen.

Bishop confirmed he missed the ferry and instead travelled as a foot passenger on a later crossing.

He wrote: “I was driving to catch a ferry to Ireland when something happened.

“To avoid a car that was swerving to avoid a ‘big chicken’ as I overtook I ended up like this.

“Nobody was hurt thanks to Land Rover being brilliant and no oncoming traffic.

“I missed my ferry but went on as a foot passenger on a later one thanks to James and Tony from Dyfed Powys Police.

“Amazing how helpful people can be when you need them and thanks to the other drivers for staying, including Andrew who I think sadly hit the ‘big chicken’ anyway.”

Earlier this year it was revealed that the comedian was the latest addition to the Doctor Who cast.

He will appear in the new series of the BBC One show, in which Jodie Whittaker reprises her role as the Time Lord.

He plays a character called Dan, who “becomes embroiled in the Doctor’s adventures”.
