Meghan McKenna fed Gregg Wallace and John Torode her own skin on Celeb MasterChef

Megan McKenna served up an extra ingredient to the judges of Celebrity MasterChef – her own flesh.

The 28-year-old former The Only Way Is Essex star is one of the many famous facing taking part in the latest star-studded season of the long running BBC cooking show.

But show judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode may have been left running for the nearest toilet as the reality star admits she accidentally carved part of her finger into a meal she prepared for the two.

Megan says she was an accident prone disaster in the kitchen which is how she inadvertently added human skin to her recipe.

The Sun on Sunday quotes her stating: “Cooking is dangerous.

“I burned my hand, cut myself and grated my finger so I think I fed Gregg and John skin with their food.”

She added: “I don’t think they noticed, though.”

It seems injury in the kitchen is particularly high risk for celebrities as McFly drummer Harry Judd caused panic in the kitchen last month on ITV’s Cooking With the Stars.

The star accidentally sliced the top of his finger off in the middle of a cooking challenge, with a medic rushing to the scene to help patch put he wound while pots and pans bubbled on the set.

The clumsy 35-year-old said at the time: “There was so much blood! It wasn’t pretty.

“I had to wear a plastic glove for the rest of the cook off, and when I took it off, it was filled with blood. It wasn’t my only injury throughout the series either!”

Asked what cooking skills Harry took to the show, he laughs: “Absolutely nothing.

“The microwave was my best friend in the kitchen, and I could just about make toast.

“I just wanted to do something fun, to put a smile back on peoples’ faces. And my wife Izzy is certainly pleased, as it means I’m definitely doing more cooking at home now.”

Meanwhile, Megan has explained her decision to feature on Celebrity MasterChef is in part inspired by the fact she wants to educate people about coeliac disease.

The star suffers from the condition – which is when the body’s immune system is activated by gluten to attack your own body’s tissues – while a gluten-free diet is one of the ways fellow sufferers can help reduce symptoms.

She said: “The trolls who pick on me call me anorexic, skeletal, too thin. It’s frustrating. Fat-shaming isn’t allowed but everyone thinks it’s OK to skinny-shame.”

Unintentional weight loss is one of the many symptoms that coeliac disease can cause – while other side effects include stomach aches, digestive problems, bloating, and bowel problems.

While there is no cure for the disease, the NHS advises that: “following a gluten-free diet should help control symptoms and prevent the long-term complications of the condition.”
