UNION J star Josh Cuthbert was attacked by three thugs on motorbikes who threatened to kill him, he revealed today.
The 30-year-old star took to his Instagram to give details about the 'horrific ordeal' he suffered at the hands of 'men on motorbikes'.
On his story, Josh revealed shocking details of the incident, which happened as he drove back from London on Saturday night.
He wrote: "I was driving down a dual carriageway five minute from home, and all of a sudden two big Harley Davidson motorbikes came [up] behind me."
"One of them came right into my lane and turned his bike sideways towards me. I had to do an emergency stop to avoid hitting him.
"He added: "I couldn't move the car at all, I was pinned in."

"The guy outside the passenger window was head butting the glass to try and break it."
The star detailed how he thought he wasn't going to live through the incident.
"One of them said if I don't get out the car they were going to kill me.
"It was honestly so terrifying, I was trapped and couldn't move. I couldn't even find my phone to call the police."
Josh later reveals he had a stroke of good luck as other motorists started to travel in the same direction and the thugs simply left.
But his car didn't get off undamaged from the incident as he revealed they "smashed my wing mirror off in anger" as they left.
"I think their plan was to get me out of the car, steal it and then drive off.
"I can't believe we live in a world where people think they have the right to treat another human like that".
As he says he reported the incident to the police he wrote: "My anxiety has been through the roof since and I had a panic attack earlier when trying to leave the house".
He added: "Physically I am fine but it's been pretty rough emotionally/mentally. I'm praying these people are caught".
