Don't you just love 'em .  Mine broke a valuable vase at that age   

With any luck the camellia will behave as if it's been pruned back hard, will send out some new shoots and within a couple of years, maybe less, it'll be as good as new 

In 12 years time he'll probably park a motor bike next to it, the stand will give way and it'll snap a few more branches off

Pick a few sprigs , pour on boiling water and a teaspoon of honey. Leave to stand for a few mins. A lovely relaxing drink at the end of the day.
