Comedian John Bishop crashes Land Rover in Wales after avoiding another car that had swerved to try to miss a ‘big chicken’


The comedian was travelling through west Wales to catch a ferry

Comedian John Bishop escaped uninjured when he crashed off the road in west Wales after swerving to avoid another driver who in turn had swerved to avoid a “big chicken”.

Mr Bishop was driving through Wales on his way to catch a ferry to Ireland from Pembrokeshire.

During his trip, he said he had to overtake another vehicle which had swerved in the road. As a result, Bishop’s Land Rover left the road and crashed into a barrier at the side of the dual carriageway.

Posting about the incident on Instagram, the Liverpudlian comedian, 54, said: “I was driving to catch a ferry to Ireland when something happened! To avoid a car that was swerving to avoid a ‘big chicken’ – I overtook (and) I ended up like this.

“Nobody was hurt thanks to @landrover_uk being brilliant and no oncoming traffic.”

Bishop, who is due to perform his new tour show over two nights at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena next March, revealed that he missed his original ferry to Ireland, but thanked police officers for their support.

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