The star, best known for his role in longrunning Aussie soap opera Home & Away, was working on his beloved vintage motor in Melbourne, Australia when he opened the radiator cap and was scolded by hot water.

Whitehead was taken to a nearby medical facility and treated for burns to his right hand, arm, shoulder and chest, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph.

A spokeswoman for the TV show confirmed the news, and insisted he is recovering well: "He and a mate were tinkering with his car on Friday and he has burnt his right hand. He has been having it treated at the Epworth Hospital."
