A TV presenter was run over while recording a show - aiming at finding the worst driver in Holland.

Ruben Nicolai was filming 'Who Is The Worst Driver In The Netherlands?' when he suffered the accident as contestants were being put through their paces.

The driver, known as Pim, was completing a task where he was meant to drive along a track between traffic cones when he took his eyes off the road and lost control.

His car ploughed through cones before hitting a cameraman and Mr Nicolai, who was taken to hospital with a torn lip, and a sore shoulder and foot.

Pim and two female passengers - an instructor in the front and Pim's friend in the back - were not hurt in the accident.

After spending a night in hospital, a shaken Mr Nicolai reassured viewers that he would make a full recovery.

"I've just a little pain in my shoulder and my foot. We all had the fright of our lives," he said.
