British Tv star Ant Mcpartlin has lost the top of his thumb after cutting it off with a vegetable slicer.

The Britain's Got Talent host - best known as one half of the duo Ant and Dec with Declan Donnelly - was hospitalised on Saturday (15Feb14) following the accident at his London home.

The end of his thumb was left hanging off, but doctors were unable to reattach it.

He says, "It hurt like hell. There was a lot of blood. They said they couldn't do it (stitch it back on). I've been left without the tip."
