Elizabeth Hurley was terrified her husband Arun Nayar would be scarred for life after he was hurled into the air by a fireball in the grounds of their home.
The British model/actress and her businessman beau were preparing to light a bonfire at their country farm in south-west England last year (10) when a kerosene blast singed Nayar's hair and burned his hand.
Austin Powers star Hurley rushed him to hospital for treatment - and was relieved when surgeons told her he would suffer no permanent injury.
She tells London's Evening Standard, "It was a terrifying accident and Arun was very lucky that he had an excellent burns specialist and didn't end up scarred. He now regularly steals my Creme de la Mer (skin cream), which he claims helped his skin to heal so beautifully."
