My jaw's broken in 3 places after brutal attack and nerves are damaged – I can't feel my face, says Geordie Shore star

GEORDIE Shore star Ant Kennedy has revealed his jaw's been broken in three places in an unprovoked nightclub attack in Ibiza.

The 28-year-old was on the first night of his holiday when he was savagely beaten in Linekers sports bar in San Antonio.


Lying in his hospital bed, Ant shared a video of his severely swollen and blood-spattered face.

Unable to open his mouth to talk, he instead wrote: "I Came to Ibiza to get away, relax and have fun but instead I’ve had my jaw broken in 3 places both upper and lower, wires put in to keep my mouth shut, I have a numb face due to nerve damage from the punches!

"The feeling may or may not come back we don’t know and they have thrown in few stitches added in there for good measure. Pretty much resembling the elephant man at this point."

Ant said he's looking at a recovery period of four to six months after having surgery and his jaw wired shut.
