Richard Hammond has bravely opened up on how his wife screaming in his ear 'woke him up' from his coma after the 2006 crash that almost killed him.

Speaking from a walk in the Lake District, the Top Gear star reflected on how he had a 'vivid dream' he was in that exact location while comatose.

"Apparently she [Mindy Hammond] roared and screamed and swore at me 'don't you dare die'", he said of the moment.

"That's when I turned back from this tree in my dream. And that's when I woke."
