TELEVISION personality Grant Denyer is expected to be out of action for the next few months after crushing vertebrae in his back in a monster truck accident.

The former Sunrise weather man, who also races V8 Supercars, is in a stable condition in intensive care at St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Sydney, his manager David Wilson said today.

Denyer crushed his lower vertebrae when he landed heavily during a demonstration jump over five wrecked cars ahead of this weekend’s Monster Truck Championships at Dapto, near Wollongong yesterday.

Wilson confirmed that the 31-year-old, who also hosts It Takes Two and Australia’s Got Talent, will not compete in Australia’s biggest motor race next month, the Bathurst 1000.

“We’re talking several months rather than weeks of recovery and possibly some surgery,” Wilson said.

“He will not be able to drive for the rest of the year in any event.”

Denyer was transported by ambulance to Sydney overnight and will have further MRI scans this afternoon.

Initial results showed no nerve damage, Wilson said.

“The damage he’s done is to his L1 vertebrae and he’s actually crushed that – it’s actually in about half a dozen pieces,” Wilson said.

“It’s a very serious injury.

“But the good news from the tests that have come back to date is that he’s not presenting with any apparent nerve damage issues.

“That is to say fingers and toes are all functioning normally.”

Denyer is expected back on air on the Seven network next year.

“Grant, being the robust action figure man that he is, and this is a man who still currently holds five Guinness World Records, he is going to bounce back from this, it is just going to take some time,” Wilson said.

“I think by the time we see the next series of Australia’s Got Talent come around in 2009 he’ll be up and at ‘em.”
