Prue Leith was seen walking with crutches as she arrived at The Big Feastival in Oxfordshire on Friday, just hours after her breakfast meeting with Boris Johnson.

The Great British Bake Off judge, 79, has been hired to help sort out hospital meals following the deaths of six patients who contracted listeria after eating NHS food. 

While she happily met with the Prime Minister earlier in the day, Prue was seen using rainbow-print crutches at the street food festival.

Prue didn't let her injury get her down, as she used the crutches to walk to the stage before defiantly holding them up and placing them to one side.

The professional chef was in great spirits as she gave a cooking demonstration at the event, and jokingly brandished her crutches in funny poses after the talk.

She put on a colourful display in a striped asymmetrical shirt, which she teamed up with a pair of black trousers and red trainers.

Prue's injury is believed to be a broken Achilles tendon, and MailOnline have contacted Prue's representatives for comment.
