Debbie McGee, 60, told her Radio Berkshire listeners that she had to be saved by two men on Saturday after her car broke down on a busy main road nearby where she lives. Detailing her “embarrassing” experience, she described herself as a ‘damsel in distress’.
It’s always embarrassing when you break down, isn’t it
Kicking off her self-titled radio show on Sunday morning, Debbie felt she needed to share the incident with her loyal listeners and thank the men who intervened to get her off the busy road.
“I was up bright and early all organised, got in the car and then I broke down quite close to wear I live, about two miles away,” Debbie said.
“I was pulling out of Blakes road, onto the A4 and I’d literally got halfway round the corner on the A4, it couldn’t have been worse, well it could have been… but the car conked out!”
At first the TV star admitted she believed she could get the vehicle going again, but alas it wasn’t giving in lightly.

“It was firing but not going the whole way,” she explained.
“So, a couple of people went past me and asked ‘Can we help’ but I said ‘No, no I’ll be fine’ because I just thought it was damp in the engine."
She continued to detail the frightening experience as cars were “veering round her” while she was stuck in the middle of the road.
But eventually she was saved by a "lovely chap" named Mick.
