Alex Jones had her very own kitchen nightmare while competing in the upcoming Celebrity Bake Off when she was cut by a broken mixing bowl.

The One Show presenter found herself needing some medical attention after she sliced her hand open on glass during a challenge without realising the extent of the injury.

She told Metro.co.uk: "They had these fancy electric mixers, where you attach the glass bowl, put the whisk in and press go. It turns out my bowl wasn’t attached and the moment the blade hit it, the bowl shattered into 1,000 pieces.

"I’m saying ‘I’m absolutely fine’ before realising there’s a massive shard of glass sticking out of my hand.

“I had to go straight off to the paramedic for stitches. He said 'I’m just going to put in the anaesthetic' and I was like 'No, there’s no time for that, I have a showstopper to make, just do it!’"

While it remains to be seen if it impacted the 42-year-old’s performance, Jones may have also teased where she places on the programme already as she claimed she "barely made anything edible".

The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer is set to air on Tuesday 10 March at 8pm on Channel 4, with Ovie Soko, Jenny Eclair, Russell Howard and Louis Theroux competing in the first episode.

Jones and other famous faces including Alison Hammond, Scarlett Moffatt, Patsy Palmer, Joe Sugg and more will be seen on subsequent episodes.

They will be Sandi Toksvig's final episodes too after the host revealed she would be stepping down from the programme earlier in the year.

She has presented the programme alongside comedian Noel Fielding since 2017 and her replacement has not yet been named.

Fielding is set to return to the main series later in 2020 alongside judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.
