The stars of the upcoming Shane Warne mini-series found themselves in hospital after a clumsy moment during a sex scene.
The Australian sportsman died of a heart attack aged 52 in March 2021 while on holiday in Thailand.
Announced last year, the two-part drama stars Alex Williams and will tell the story of the late cricketer’s life.
Now, the actress who plays Warne’s ex-wife Simone Callahan, the mother of his three children, has detailed how her and Alex had a slight mishap on set.
Marny Kennedy has revealed that after during one particular steamy scene, the pair were rushed to hospital.
‘We were going down a corridor and we were meant to push into the bedroom and land on the bed, but we both completely missed the bed,’ she said.

‘We ended up sitting in the emergency room together, he with a bandage around his head and me with my wrist strapped.
‘It was just Alex and I with our bleached hair, fully still in wardrobe, sitting there surrounded by elderly residents,’ she added when speaking to The Daily Telegraph.
Whilst they eventually saw the funny side of things, their injuries were quite serious, with Marny left with a broken wrist while Alex had cracked the back of his head open.
But after snapping a selfie together in hospital they later made personalised mugs with the photo to mark the occasion.
The series is also set to show Warne’s romance with Elizabeth Hurley, with the trailer teasing some other steamy scenes.

Released last week, one scene showed Liz (played by Shanti Kali) straddling Shane in a hotel room, while other scenes show the pair groping each other and kissing passionately.
While the show will explore his legendary career, it will also look into his life off the pitch, with the trailer also showing Shane partying, drinking, gambling and driving expensive sports cars.
After being announced six months after Warne’s death, the series was initially slammed by those close to the late sportsman, including his daughter Brooke. With some of them suggesting this is just a publicity stunt to gain ratings for the ‘flop series.’
While she said it was ‘beyond disrespectful’, the Nine Network has since said it met with his family during pre-production and were given their blessing to proceed.
Warnie will air on Channel Nine in Australia later this year.
