The Geordie presenter, who always appears on the left-hand side of TV screens when presenting with Dec, was figuring out how to use a vegetable-slicing gadget on Saturday night, as he planned to make dauphinoise potatoes the next day.

"It was a complete disaster. I ended up slicing the top of my thumb off. God, it was painful," McPartlin said

The star rushed to hospital, hoping that the tip could be stitched back on, but medics were only able to clean and dress the injury.

"It hurt like hell. There was a lot of blood," he said.

Despite his ordeal, McPartlin, 38, took to the kitchen the next day and the Sunday roast went ahead as planned.

"I still got the meal on the table," he said.
