Frank Skinner broke down in tears live on his radio show as he told listeners that his former co-host Gareth Richards is fighting for his life after a crash.

The comedian struggled for words as he revealed that his friend was in a “very big road accident” this week and was fighting for his life.

Mr Richards is believed to have been involved in a serious collision on the M25 near Heathrow Airport on 27 March.

The crash between a lorry and two cars happened on the motorway between Junctions 14 and 15, Surrey Live reported.

A man was cut free from his vehicle by firefighters before being treated by the London Ambulance Service for head and chest injuries. The Met Police previously said he was in a “life-threatening” condition.

‘He’s a fantastic bloke’

During the closing moments of his show on Absolute Radio on Saturday, Mr Skinner recalled how Mr Richards had co-hosted with him and Emily Dean when the show first started out.

Breaking down in tears, he continued: “And Gareth was in a very big road accident this week and… it’s not looking great for Gareth.

“He’s in hospital and he’s fighting but it’s not looking great and I didn’t want to do this show – we didn’t want to do this show without mentioning him…”

He added: “He’s a fantastic bloke and I dunno if any of you do pray, if you do give one for Gareth this week.”
