Police attended the scene but neither of them were hurt, according to The Sun Online .
Gaffney told the publication he’d had a “bump” in his car, adding: “There has been a crash which is why I’m driving a hire car.”
The motor-mad star owned a £33,000 Mercedes, which he had delivered to the EastEnders set in March, 2018 to celebrate the end of his year-long driving ban.
