MasterChef presenter John Torode assures fans he is OK after Boxing Day mishap

Presenter admits he is “very bruised” after incident when he "took a tumble while out riding"


Masterchef’s John Torode has said he is “OK” after being hospitalised in London following an incident on Boxing Day.


The 51-year-old chef and presenter tweeted today that he is now fine – and thanked hospital staff for the care they showed him:

Torode said that he “took a tumble while out riding” suggesting that his accident may have involved either a horse or some form of two-wheeled transport.

Yesterday his girlfriend Lisa Faulkner said Torode was left “very bruised” as a result of his mishap and shared a picture  (above) of him lying on a hospital bed.

The actress said that Torode had had a “lucky escape” after the incident which occurred while they were believed to be spending Christmas at London’s Claridges hotel.


Torode was also well enough to tweet his condolences about the death of Carrie Fisher last night.
