While her Made in Chelsea co-stars were celebrating their victory at the star-studded BAFTA TV Awards, Rosie Fortescue was recuperating at home after being involved in a serious car crash.
The reality TV star suffered severe whiplash and heavy bruising after her taxi driver reportedly fell asleep at the wheel and collided with four cars.
According to the Mail, Rosie, 23, had been out partying in central London on Friday night when she decided to get a pre-booked taxi home. The car was traveling down Fulham Road en route to her Chelsea home in the early hours of the morning when the accident occurred.

Rosie was on the phone to her twin sister Lily at around 6am when she realised that the cab was veering dangerously close to other vehicles.
A source close to her told the newspaper, “The driver fell asleep at the wheel and veered into four cars outside Maggie”s nightclub. Rosie was encouraged to wait for police by onlookers but hopped into a black cab and continued home.
“She was on the phone to her sister Lily at the time who naturally was massively upset by the whole incident.”
Rosie has since been in contact with the taxi company, and is said to be looking at her legal options.
