Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills suffered an embarrassing accident during a trip to the supermarket last week (27May09) when she slipped and lost her artificial leg.
The former glamour model had her left leg amputated after a motorcycle accident in 1993 and has been sporting a prosthetic limb ever since.
But she was left red-faced after slipping on some spilled milk while shopping for groceries in the U.S. - and had to be helped to her feet by a pair of male fans.
Writing on her Twitter.com blog, Mills says, "Slipped on spilt milk whilst being followed down supermarket aisle by two teenage boys, ended up on my a**, but they rescued my leg and me."
