Actor Marshall expected on stage

Robert Webb and Ella Smith talk about Kris Marshall

Actor Kris Marshall is expected to be back at work this week after being hit by a car on a night out in Bristol, his co-stars have said.

The 35-year-old former My Family star has been in rehearsals for West End play Fat Pig, with comedian Robert Webb and actress Ella Smith.

"I'm sure he'll be back in rehearsals on Thursday," Smith said.

Marshall is now out of intensive care at Bristol Royal Infirmary, the actor's agent Rupert Fowler confirmed.

The accident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.

"Last we heard he's doing very well - apparently he has the day off tomorrow and then he'll be back," Webb said on BBC One's Breakfast on Tuesday.

"We think it's a just a big ploy because he hasn't learnt his lines... but no, he's fine and we really look forward to having him back," Smith added.

Marshall, who comes from the Cotswolds but lives in Windsor, starred in the film Love Actually and played detective Luke Stone in ITV1 drama serial Murder City.

He played hapless Nick in BBC One sitcom My Family for five years from 2000.

Fat Pig is due to open next month in London.
