Bachelor in Paradise star Jessica Brody hilariously commented, ‘Conor McGregor called and he wants his leg back.’ 

‘Why is your arm at that angle… sweet Jesus,’ enquired TV presenter Danny Clayton, to which Simone explained it was ‘dislocated and fractured.’ 

‘We can still hear the screams,’ joked another one of the model’s friends.
