Kennedy Leitch lost the end of the middle finger of his left hand, the 33-year-old professional cellist said, "It was the middle finger of my left hand, which is the worst hand for a cellist to hurt." Paramedics glued the skin back on his finger following his horrific ordeal, which is due to air on BBC1 tonight at 2100GMT (0200EST).
Contestants on the show
, presented by John Torode and Gregg Wallace, were divided into two teams to prepare a mouth-watering meal for 100 sportsmen at the Invercharron Highland Games. Each team creates around 200 dishes from a range of Scottish favourite dishes and ingredients in just two hours.
The winning team members then re-create a four-course delicacy at Skibo Castle
, where they have 90 minutes to produce a winning dish designed by Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin.
The unfortunate cellist was leading a team of five, working against the clock to cook the dishes in time inside a tent, when he stepped up to help peel 20kg of neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes) to accompany a venison dish when the unfortunate incident
happened, as reported on Yahoo TV news.
