Former Love Island winner Cara Delahoyde-Massey was left nursing her face with a bag of frozen peas after the family’s pet dog headbutted her. Cara suffered a broken nose following the accident involving her handsome pooch Nigel.
The mum-of-two, 31, who won the ITV dating show with her now-husband Nathan Massey, 29, in 206, took to Instagram to reveal her nasal injury. Pictured holding peas to her face she wrote: “Guess whose dog just headbutted her and broken her nose.”
And she answered: “Me. The answer’s me. For reference Shepherds have very hard heads.” She later shared an update to say. “Very swollen nose today thanks Nigel.”

Sharing an update with her 1.1 million followers Cara, who shares 18-month old daughter Delilah and four-year-old son Freddie with hubby Nathan, posted a new photo of her swollen nose. And she wrote: “Very swollen nose today thanks Nigel.”
Cara and Nathan, who married in July 2019, welcomed Nigel into their family in August last year.
Explaining their decision Nathan wrote on Instagram: “Welcome to the family Nigel!!! Myself and @cara_delahoyde have been talking on-and-off about getting a dog that will look after the family and be safe with children at the same time.
“Then we stumbled across @ambassadorprotectiondogs who are a family run business which the dogs are trained and brought up with their own children and that’s when we knew they were the right breeders for us.”
Cara recently opened up about her decision to start back on anti-depressants after admitting to herself she needed help.
“So yesterday I took the step to to start back on citalopram after a really hard few days I admitted to myself that I needed help,” she wrote on her Instagram.
And she added: “Medication is not weak and there’s no shame in asking for help.”
