He told the Sun: “God it was painful.

But unfortunately for Ant, who was using to the mandolin to slice potatoes, medical staff were unable to stitch his thumb back together.

"He's being a bit of a grump if I'm honest," Dec told OK! magazine. "We think it might be because of the fatherhood thing.

"We reckon he might be afraid that people think he's going to become too soft, so he's gone the other way to reinforce his grumpiness."
