Britain’s Got Talent host Ant McPartlin suffered an injury while on the set of the hit TV show. The star was filming the show when he injured himself with a coconut while a hopeful tried to beat a world record.

Dozens of coconuts were set up on the stage as a contestant attempted to beat the world record for breaking the fruit with his hands. Ant unfortunately injured himself as he tested out the method on different parts of his body, eventually being left with a bandaged forehead.

Ant headbutted the rock-hard fruit on the show but didn’t appear to be hurt as he continued giggling with his co-star Declan Donnelly. He was left with a small wound following the incident. He actually hadn’t noticed he was bleeding until Dec pointed it out to him, as reported by BirminghamLive.

Firstly, he punched the fruit before warning viewers: “Do not punch coconuts kids, it really hurts. I think I nearly broke my knuckle.” He then hit a coconut on his forehead and seconds later, Dec told him: “You’ve cut your head on a coconut.” Ant joked as he pointed at the camera: “How irresponsible are you?”

Ant joked about his bandage as he said: “This is very extreme for a little tap on the forehead.” A medic told the star he would need to change his dressing every day for three weeks.
