Did Bradley Walsh hurt his back?

Yes! Bradley sustained three broken bones in the bottom of his back.

The father-of-two ended up in the hospital following the injury. However, he’s now recovered.

Fans reacted to Bradley’s injury on Twitter. Many disapproved of the Walsh father and son duo taking part in bull riding. However, others sympathised with Bradley.

One Twitter user wrote: “Karma. Bulls are not here for our entertainment. No non-human animal is.”

Another said: “Rodeos are barbaric. People really need to find a proper sport that doesn’t include making animals suffer for “entertainment.”
