MailOnline has approached Angela’s representatives for comment.
Shortly after being taken to hospital Angela was released and is said to be ‘doing OK’.
She took to Instagram Stories to share some flowers her team had sent her and was busy promoting her friend’s podcast, without mentioning the incident.
A local told The Sun: ‘It was a serious crash which involved four vehicles. It made a hell of a racket. Quite loud bangs. It was four vehicles in total.

‘Officers attended. One person was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service. The road was closed whilst emergency services were at the scene.’
It comes after Angela – who shares three-year-old daughter Ruby with her husband Roy Horgan – spoke about motherhood during a March interview with The Daily Mail.
She candidly said: ‘No one can prepare you for becoming a mother. I have a ton of nieces and nephews and genuinely thought I knew what was coming, but it’s completely different. There is no manual you get given when leaving the hospital.
‘Motherhood is a huge gear change. So much of my identity was tied to my career — having a baby and taking time off work meant I didn’t know who the hell I was any more.
‘After I gave birth, my returning TV presenting role with Dara O’Briain on Robot Wars fell through. That felt devastating. But I looked down at this little human I had pushed out and I thought, ”OK, you know what, I can survive”.’
Further reflecting on her return to work after 12 weeks, Angela said she was ‘like a deer in the headlights, fuelled by caffeine and suffering insomnia.’
She continued: ‘Often I would beat myself up if I had to travel for work or if I wasn’t around for bedtime.
‘But I learned to ask for help — and to take it when it was offered. That isn’t being weak, it’s human.’
