Peter Andre crashed into a brick wall when his treadmill broke down.
The Behind Closed Doors hitmaker is hunting for a new running machine after his malfunctioned during his work-out, leaving him bruised.
He said: "Something really funny happened to me last week. I was training with my mate Carl and for some reason my faithful running machine decided to cark it while I was running and I went flying backwards into a brick wall. Ouch!
"I'm now on the lookout for a new companion, so anyone knows of any reliable treadmills, please let me know."
The 42-year-old singer's friend wasn't particularly sympathetic about his accident.
He added: "Carl couldn't stop laughing all day."
And poor Peter - who has kids Junior, 10, and Princess, eight, with ex-wife Katie Price, and two-year-old Amelia with spouse Emily - is also nursing a cold after picking up a bug from his youngest daughter.
He wrote in his column for new! magazine: "As well as my training injury, I've also caught Mills' cold. You know what it's like - we share our colds in our house.
"Just call me the dutiful dad."
