‘I’M LUCKY TO BE ALIVE’
Former EastEnders star Paul Nicholls is reported to have been seriously injured after plummeting from a waterfall in Thailand.
Paul, 38, who played Joe Wicks in the BBC One soap, was trapped for three days in a rock pool after falling and smashing his leg while supposedly taking a selfie at the Khun Si Waterfall at Koh Samui.
The actor now faces a £90,000 medical bill, as his kneecap was ‘ripped off’ in the fall, as well as contracting a tropical bug in his untreated wounds. Paul was semiconscious and suffering from hypothermia when he was found.
He is now being treated for his injuries, telling friends, ‘I’m lucky to be alive.’
