Nicole Eggert has stripped off to show the severe bruising she suffered in a diving accident on the set of U.S. TV contest Splash.

The actress was injured last week (ends19Apr13) while she was trying to perfect a daring backflip for the show, in which stars take part in a diving competition.

Eggert later denied reports she had been hospitalised after the incident, insisting she has only suffered "swelling and bruising on my back and kidneys", and on Monday (22Apr13) she posted an image online showing her bare back covered with bruises and welts, alongside the message, "Here's the damage".
