During an interview with Capital FM presenters Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon she revealed that she had been told to wear the sling for three days.

You know what, I think it's actually hurting more to have it in the sling than it does when it's not in there. I was just told to wear it for three days.

Asked by Snowdon if Will.i.am was a bad driver, Cole joked:

That bad a talker I would say. He was talking the face off us. No, he was talking about NASA and Mars and his song.

After the accident happened Cole tweeted to reassure her fans that she and Will.i.am were both fine.

The crash happened following a "long day/night in the studio" in the United States, according to Will.i.am's manager. He added that the artists were left a "little bit shaken" following the crash.
