Love Actually star Joanna Page is caring for her actor husband after he was hit by a car in London.
James Thornton, who appears in longrunning British soap opera Emmerdale, and his wife were shopping in the U.K. capital last week (ends14Feb10) when he was struck by a car.
The 34 year old fractured his knee and suffered further injuries to his legs in the accident - and has scrapped all his immediate working commitments on the show.
An Emmerdale spokeswoman says "We can confirm that James was hit by a car last week, he has a fractured knee and is recovering at home."
A source tells Britain's Daily Star, "He was having a few days off in London with Jo and they'd been out for dinner when he was hit by the car. Joanna was in a right state and James was in absolute agony. He knows he was lucky."
