Dean admits he wasn't wearing his seat belt when he sustained injuries in a car crash in January.
Former EastEnders actor Dean Gaffney has said he is "very lucky" not to have been left blind or brain damaged after injuries sustained in a car crash last month when he was not wearing a seatbelt.
Gaffney appeared on television this morning with a large scar down one side of his forehead.
Speaking to Daybreak hosts Aled Jones and Lorraine Kelly about the accident, he admitted to not wearing a safety belt. He said: “I know I'm a naughty boy and it takes something like this – I always learn the hard way in my life.”
