A PLACE in the Sun star Danni Menzies has been left bloodied and bruised after being hit by a stolen moped travelling at 30mph.
The TV star, 33, was rushed to hospital with shocking facial injuries after she was struck by the vehicle earlier this month.
Danni was left hurt after two females – who were attempting to steal an unattended moped – lost control of the automobile.
In pictures obtained by the Mail, the property expert looked in a daze as she sat on the pavement covered in blood outside a newsagent in Battersea, London.
Danni, who was unconscious after the hit, had a huge cut on lip, as well as her eye brow.
The Channel 4 favourite sat down on the floor holding a bloody tissue as she waited for an ambulance.

Danni wrote: “Sooooo…. On Saturday I was taken out (on the pavement!) by a stolen moped that lost control.
