Neil Jones, 38, has issued a plea to car drivers to be careful with checking their blind spots after he almost got into an accident on his motorcycle. The Strictly Come Dancing professional informed his 84,000 Twitter followers about the near miss incident in a post this afternoon.
The star explained: “I’ve been using a motorcycle since lockdown as my main transportation and I can honestly say HGV look to be the most aware, car drivers please use your mirrors and check your blind spot.
“I even had a car all of a sudden reversed when we were at a stand still, good job I kept a good distance but I still had to lean to the side so the car didn’t drive over me.
“The driver only noticed once they were by my side and still laughed while saying sorry.”
Neil went on to say he has also noticed that L-plated scooter drivers seem to “not pay attention” on the roads.

He added: “The craziest motorcyclists have to be the L plated scooters who just seem to not pay attention. It’s not all but a very high percentage.
“Lastly bikes now for me I would love to see them pay more attention to the high way code, now it’s not all of them but a high percent who don’t follow rules the rest of us keep to and this makes it dangerous.
“So please all take care,” the BBC favourite concluded.
Fans took to the comments section of Neil’s posts to share their thoughts on his concerns.
One person wrote: “I find the same with cycling. Cars generally have no consideration for other road users.”
Another added: “Hope you are ok.”
A third fan commented: “Well said Neil! I cycle everywhere and it’s amazing how many, largely, ‘younger’ people you see behaving recklessly.”
Neil previously shared a series of snaps of his motorcycle in view of his 224,000 Instagram followers.

The dancer shared some close-up photos of the red and black vehicle with fans.
He also insisted he had taken safety precautions while riding the motorcycle, as he was pictured just wearing a T-shirt and jeans in one of the pictures.
Neil captioned the photos: “Before anyone asks yes I was wearing a protective jacket while riding.”
Elsewhere, Neil recently confirmed his romance with model Luisa Eusse, 23, on Instagram, his first public romance since splitting from wife Katya Jones.
Earlier this month, Luisa referred to the dancer as her husband in a romantic Instagram post.
The model wrote: ”Love u husband,”(sic) which was followed by a heart emoji alongside a snap of the duo.
She added of their romance: “How crazy, but how nice to have found my love, both vibrating in the same tunes, so strong and so pure, that Cupid stopped when he saw us go by, we created music and fire just by looking at each other and you made me feel safe while sliding my hands through your red hair.
“Love is blind, you may physically fit in with anyone, but the soul does not smile or vibrate with anyone.
“It is true that beauty attracts, but when one day you write his name to fill the gaps in the notebook without realising it, that’s feeling.”
