John Torode hospitalised after falling off horse

John Torode was rushed to hospital after he fell off his horse.

The 'Masterchef' star was forced to spend Boxing Day (26.12.16) in accident and emergency at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, after he took a nasty "tumble" while out and about on a hack with his four-legged friend.

Taking to his Twitter account on Wednesday (28.12.16), the 51-year-old celebrity chef assured fans he was "OK" following the horrific accident and is just bruised.

He said: "Thank you all for your kind wishes. I really am ok but a massive thank you to St. Mary's & the NHS for everything #stmaryshospitalpaddington

"I really am ok everyone ! Thank you , just took a tumble whilst out riding , & posted photo to thank the Docs , nurses and all at St Mary's (sic)"

John was left with no choice but to explain what had landed him in hospital after his girlfriend Lisa Faulker - who he met on 'Celebrity Masterchef' in 2010 - worried fans when she uploaded a photograph of her man tied up to machines.

She said at the time: "Thank you so very much to the lovely docs and nurses yesterday #stmaryshospitalpaddington for looking after my @johntorodecooks who is very bruised but doing well! #luckyescape #blessed (sic)."

He was later discharged from the hospital and was resting up at home.

Lisa added: "Thank you for all your lovely get well wishes ! @JohnTorode1 is well and happy and sitting on the sofa and all is good (sic)."
