Gavin and Stacey star Mathew Horne was reportedly clipped by a passenger train in Burton Joyce as he walked home from a local pub over the Christmas period.
Horne, 40, whose parents live in the village, was reported to have been knocked backwards after he was struck by the train on a pedestrian crossing according to witnesses.
The actor did not require hospital treatment after the incident involving an East Midlands passenger train on December 20.
A duty manager at The Lord Nelson pub in the village told The Sun: “It was a really, really unfortunate accident and it could have been a lot worse. We are all glad that it wasn’t.
“He was obviously very shaken up but he’s all right now. He’s got a bit of a scratch on him but no underlying issue there whatsoever.”
It was reported that East Midlands Ambulance Service and British Transport Police were called to the scene shortly after 10.30pm.
Paramedics and a doctor checked Horne over but he was not taken to hospital.
