Ageing Bond girl Honor Blackman once knocked out a champion wrestler while filming a fight scene in 1960s TV series The Avengers. The 78-year-old glamour queen, who played leather-sporting judo expert CATHY GALE in the show, accidentally hospitalised legendary fighter JACKIE PALLO during a particularly tense sequence. She recalls, "We were filming in a graveyard, I stepped on a spade and it hit him square between the eyes. "It split his nose and he went cross-eyed. What was amazing was that he managed to stay upright for about seven minutes before he collapsed and had to be taken to hospital."
