He starred in “Married at First Sight” but this British reality TV star looked a fright after he was attacked in a home invasion robbery, newly released images show.
David Pugh, 56, was shirtless and covered in blood from his forehead to his waist after the bizarre attack left him looking like a victim in a horror movie.
The salesman, who appeared in the show about instant marriages this month, used his knowledge of Krav Maga martial arts to fight back against the five machete-wielding thugs who broke into his Catherine-de-Barnes, England, home in Feb. 2018,
“I got woken up at three in the morning with the sound of broken glass and doors being kicked in,” he said. “It became an out-and-out battle in my house for about 10 minutes.”
Pugh said his “martial arts training just kicked in.”
“I wasn’t being brave. I was very lucky – there were golf clubs, machetes, table legs flying.”
Warning: Graphic photos
The burglars, who also injured Pugh’s puppy Zeus, finally left his home empty-handed, Pugh said.
Pugh apparently released the photos after gaining fame on “Married at First Sight” recently.
He married a woman named Shareen on the show but had split from her by the time the show aired.
