“I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half,” the actor explained. “Who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me.”

Later, he thanked Kaz for “flying out” to Ibiza as he continues his recovery.

Fellow cast member, Cara Maria Sorbella reacted to the post and commented, “WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED PARTNER?!!!? Holy f–k no. Sending [you] love [you] f–kng warrior.”
