She wrote: 'Now that his family have been informed, Jim has asked me to let you all know that he was involved in a serious car accident yesterday, a head on collision.

'He's currently in ICU intensive care. He has 15 broken ribs, fractures in both breastbones, a punctured lung, multiple breaks in his right leg, and a broken neck.

'He's had 2 blood transfusions so far and is about to go in for his first surgery. This is for real, not a movie role.'

'Please hold some good thoughts for him as he fights his way out of this.'

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim and his family.
