James Martin fans worry about mystery accident as he says A&E ‘stitched him up’

Celebrity chef James Martin, 49, has thanked A&E staff for "stitching him up" after an accident.

He tweeted his gratitude on Thursday, writing: "Thanks to the A&E crew for stitching me up… bl***y stars literally… thank you."

James didn’t say what had happened, but concerned fans wondered if he had hurt himself in the kitchen.

"Hazard of the job James?" quipped singer songwriter Paul Young.

"Hope you are feeling better. What did you bump into to see stars. When I was a child I was playing and ran into a post. You do literally see stars," one follower wrote.

Another said: "Since being on Warfarin I treated myself to these no cut gloves amazing. Not afraid to use sharp knives now. Hope you heal soon."
