Matt tweeted: "My black cab has just been in an accident. After the collision both parties have driven off.

"This surely is not standard practice. I’m ok but WTAF.... who do I contact? My driver is to say the least [bleeped] off."

Fans were quick to reply to Matt, who was eliminated from Dancing On Ice with former Steps star H three weeks ago.

My black cab has just been in an accident. After the collision both parties have driven off.

One asked: "Was there any exchange of information? Names, phone #'s, insurance? Anything?"

But Matt replied: "No. They both drove off as I stated."

Another told him: "I would contact the taxi company and let them know what happened I’m glad you are okay though x."

A worried third follower added: "Did your driver ask if you were ok? It should be reported or at least get your driver's badge and car reg in case you get some pain later."

Entertainment Daily has contacted Matt's rep for comment.

Earlier in the evening, Matt had watched The Script in concert. Last week, he skated alongside his fellow professionals and the Irish band on Dancing On Ice.

After posing for a picture with frontman Danny O'Donoghue, he wrote on Instagram: "This man right here put on one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.

"Truly inspirational, authentic and a God damn beautiful person. If you get a chance please go see @thescriptofficial on Tour."

Meanwhile, although he and H have been eliminated from the show, Matt is still taking part in the professional group dances on Dancing On Ice.
