John Torode has been in hospital over Christmas following a 'riding accident' that left him 'very bruised', according to his partner, actress Lisa Faulkner

MasterChef judge John Torode was treated in hospital on Boxing Day after suffering a ‘lucky escape’, his partner has said.

Lisa Faulkner thanked the ‘lovely’ medical staff at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, for treating the 51-year-old celebrity chef.

 

The 44-year-old did not reveal the cause of John’s injuries when she posted a picture of him in a hospital bed and stated he ‘is very bruised but doing well’.

But on Wednesday morning, John revealed the injuries were suffered in a riding accident.

 

A day earlier, John has posted on social media the couple had been enjoying a break at Claridge’s Hotel in London.

She is now happy as a happy thing on happy days .. A Claridges Christmas @lisafaulknercooks @claridgeshotel #happychristmas #magic
