Alex Jones, who is one of the celebrity contestants for this series of The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer, opened up about being rushed to paramedics after having a gruesome accident on the baking programme. Alex said it all began with attaching the glass bowl onto the fancy electric mixer.
I had to go straight off to the paramedic for stitches.
The One Show host explained the mishap resulted in her needing stitches and an anaesthetic.
Alex told Metro.co.uk: “They had these fancy electric mixers, where you attach the glass bowl, put the whisk in and press go.”
She continued: “It turns out my bowl wasn’t attached and the moment the blade hit it, the bowl shattered into 1,000 pieces.”
The TV presenter didn’t seem to be too aware of the pain though, as she revealed that she felt fine, and didn’t realise that there was a shard of glass sticking out of her hand.

Alex went on to say: “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.”
The host then revealed that the paramedic who was treating her needed to give her an anaesthetic.
“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!'" the celebrity baker added.
Although Alex showed enthusiasm to get on with making her showstopper, she then admitted the biggest thing she learned while starring on the show was to “buy cakes instead."
