Ian Wright ended up in a car accident whilst on his way to the MOTD studio with emergency services having to be called, says the pundit.
The Arsenal legend shared a photo of himself at the side of the motorway after appearing to be involved in an accident on the M56.
Wright, 58, thankfully looks to have come out of the unscathed incident, impressive especially considering the storm battering the country.
Ian Wright was on his way to Manchester in adverse weather conditions to appear on Match of the Day on Saturday night when the accident occurred.
He was able to tweet a selfie of himself with a slight grin on the side of the motorway with the wreckage in the background, indicating that he was lucky not to be injured.
He accompanied the snap with the message: “Not a straightforward trip up for @BBCMOTD!
“Thankfully nobody was hurt.
“Be careful out there, lots of water on the road.
“Thank you to my amazing driver Jay and the brilliant emergency services 🙏🏾
“See you tonight 😁📺⚽”

Britain has felt the devastating effects of Storm Eunice over the last 24 hours.
Almost half a million people have been left without power, and while matches have been postponed, Tottenham and Burnley also had their pre-match flights canceled on Friday.
Meanwhile, Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno shared an image of his garden after a tree fell down – only just missing the side of his house.
The German posted an image of a tree having fallen on its side in his yard captioned ‘oh well’.
He shared another of a tree lying next to his house, adding: “close”.
Storm Eunice also caused the roof of Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium to pulsate as the country was battered by strong winds, London having a red weather warning for the first time in years/
The full impact of the storm was on show at Spurs’ £1.2billion stadium as Channel 4 reporter Paul McNamara uploaded a video visibly showed the roof of the stadium moving up and down due to the gusts.
Thankfully, there was no cause for concern for Tottenham fans as the stadium is in fact specially designed to deal with extreme conditions, with a cable net structure in place allowing movement.
On their website, the engineers of the roof, Schlaich Bergermann Partner, discussed how the ground has been designed.
“The outer south facade, composed of aluminum panels, is supported by the main roof structure,” it read.
“Acting as an interface between stadium superstructure and roof structure, the facade is designed to compensate for large movements.”
