Professor Green's filming was disrupted by 'knife-wielding' man

Professor Green's day of filming was disrupted yesterday (07.04.16) when a man allegedly turned up on set brandishing a knife.

The 'Read All About It' hitmaker - who was stabbed in the neck in 2009 - was left fearing for his life while shooting a documentary in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire after a stranger rocked up with what appeared to be a weapon in his hand.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: '"Interesting day filming. Some bloke was noising up while we were trying to film. Reappears later waving a blade about #cheltenham. (sic)"

The 32-year-old rapper later took to his social media account to play down the frightening incident, claiming that the silver appliance may have actually been a bottle opener.

He added: "In fairness he had a bottle of wine so it could have been a bottle opener... Cause that's normal. (sic)"

According to Gloucestershire Police, no knife-related incidents in Cheltenham were reported at the time.

However, the weapon no doubt frightened the star - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - after he was left fighting for his life seven years ago when he was attacked in a trendy nightclub in Shoreditch, east London, with a broken bottle.

Meanwhile, the recent incident comes just two months after he and his wife Millie Mackintosh ended their marriage.
