Prue Leith once accidentally stabbed a colleague in his leg.

The "Great British Bake Off" star has revealed she knifed a fellow chef after falling over while working in a busy kitchen - although the situation wasn't quite as serious as she initially feared.

Prue explained: "I once thought I'd stabbed a fellow chef in the manhood.

"I was very pregnant and quite unbalanced, and I slipped and fell with a knife in my hand and blood poured out of his upper thigh."

Prue's colleague was very understanding about the situation.

Meanwhile, Prue recently argued there are "too many cookery shows" on television.

She explained: "My own opinion is there are too many cookery shows on telly. I don't watch cookery shows because for me they go too slowly.

"I think "I know what he's doing now, why doesn't he get on with it?" But if you're learning to cook from telly, you need it to be slow. I would prefer there to be less cookery, but broadcasters are doing what the public wants."
