TV presenter Grant Denyer has been airlifted to hospital after a horror crash during a car rally outside of Melbourne on Sunday.
The Family Feud host and amateur racing driver is believed to have suffered injuries to his lower back and pelvis in the accident, but is said to be in a stable condition.
Denyer, who only hours earlier was announced as a Gold Logie nominee, was flown to hospital by air ambulance from the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship in Marysville, an hour east of Melbourne.

Denyer’s manager Titus Day told the Herald Sun the TV star managed to walk away from the wreckage after his car left the track and crashed into a tree.
The Channel Ten star’s co-driver Dale Moscatt was reportedly had to be cut from the car and was also taken to hospital after suffering a broken leg in the incident.
It’s not the first injury Denyer has suffered behind the wheel of a race car, with the ex-Sunrise weatherman fracturing his back in 2008.

Denyer was placed in ICU and spent months recovering in hospital post-crash after he attempted to jump a car over a monster truck.
Fololwing the accident the pint-sized presenter revealed he’d lost up one-centimetre in height.
Sunday’s race was immediately cancelled by organisers following the crash who not long after the accident released a detailed statement.
‘There was an incident today during a competition stage involving Grant Denyer and Dale Moscatt on stage 12 of the Lake Mountain Sprint, Round 2 of the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship,’ the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship said.

‘Both occupants were removed safely from the vehicle by Racesolutions Motorsport medical and safety team and transported by Race Solutions to a purpose setup medical centre for assessment.
‘They have been transported to Melbourne with minor injuries following a detailed description of assessment to Ambulance Victoria.’
