Greg James has shockingly revealed he was hit in the head by a bus in a sudden crash.
The Radio 1 DJ, 37, recalled the moment a driver pulled up to a bus stop so quickly that the vehicle collided with his head as he stood on the pavement.
Greg claimed the driver told him to ‘shut up’ after he said he was hit while speaking about the incident on the How To Fail With Elizabeth Day podcast.
Recalling the incident, he explained, “I got really mad at a bus driver once. I was waiting for a bus because I’m incredibly down to earth and I take the bus.
“He dived so fast that he hit my head. In fact, he hit me on the head.
“I was on the sidewalk and I was like ‘man, you just hit me on the head with your bus’. He said ‘oh shut up’.
“I said” what do you mean, shut up? You hit me with your bus, look at the size of your bus”. I get annoyed with transport.
Elsewhere on the podcast, Greg went on to speak candidly about having moments of “self-doubt” when he’s “tired and stressed out.”
He continued: “Transportation issues aside, darkness comes when I’m tired, stressed and overworked. I sometimes have really awful moments of crippling self-doubt.
“But I think they’re normal and it’s good to talk about those things. There are times when I feel like I can’t do it.
“I wake up and think ‘how am I going to do this show today? Am I good? I’ve been doing it for ages, maybe I should do something else”.
His latest comments come after Greg revealed he and his wife Bella Mackie have no plans to have children anytime soon.
The presenter admitted they are currently at the ‘kidless’ stage, but insisted they are ‘having a great life’.
The couple got engaged in June 2018 after Bella popped the question and married in September of that year.
Two years later, in May 2020, Bella revealed that she suffered a miscarriage which caused her sanity to plummet.
Bella suffers from anxiety and OCD and writes openly about her condition and struggles.
Speaking on the topic of children, Greg told Men’s Health UK: ‘We’re just watching him.
“But basically we’re both on ‘no’ to kids right now… That’s where we are right now.
‘We are having a great time. I’m 37 and Bella is 39. Lots of time… We have a great life.
‘Bella is enjoying her success as a writer and we can take a look later. Ask yourself: what will our life be like in 10, 15, 20 years? We are fine without it.
Opening up about her miscarriage in 2020, Bella wrote in The Times: “It was a surprise and only lasted about three weeks; it could barely be called a miscarriage.
“But even in that brief window, my sanity dropped dramatically.
“I started having constant intrusive thoughts, my OCD came back and I couldn’t stop crying. The intensity and speed of my deterioration shocked me. And my poor husband.
Once the initial trauma of the miscarriage passed, Bella admitted that the thought of trying to have another baby was no longer warm or fuzzy, but terrifying.
She wrote: “The thought of the baby remains vague. I’m always terrified of going back down the dangerous slope and ending up losing my independence or resenting what I’ve lost.
Bella added that at the time she was thinking about trying for a baby again and what positive safeguards she could put in place if she and Greg decided to try for another one.
