Ant McPartlin Rushed To Hospital After Chopping Off Tip Of Thumb
Telly host reveals doctors were unable to stitch it back on...
Ant McPartlin has lost the tip of his thumb following a painful kitchen mishap.
Ant had only just bought the gadget, called a mandoline, when he had the accident while preparing dauphinoise potatoes for his wife and TV presenting partner Declan Donnelly.
He told the paper: “I knew that to get the potatoes thin enough I’d need the proper tool but had no idea how to use one. On the Saturday night I decided to practise with it so I got one potato and gave it a go.
"It was a complete disaster. I ended up slicing the top of my thumb off. God, it was painful.”
The Britain's Got Talent host dashed to a nearby hospital but was told all they could do was clean it up and dress it.
However, despite the accident, Ant bragged that he still managed to get the Sunday roast on the table the following day.
