Steph McGovern horrified as injury causes fire service to cut wedding ring

Steph McGovern had an unexpected morning after she had to change her plans for the day and head to her local fire station to have her wedding band professionally removed.

The Steph's Packed Lunch presenter told her followers of her "eventful morning" which took place all before she even dropped her daughter off at her first day of nursery.

Taking to Twitter, the 39-year-old shared a series of snaps as she posed with the fire crew from Harrogate fire services and said: "Eventful morning… started with a trip to @FireHarrogate to get a ring cut off [my] swollen finger I'd trapped in a door."

She thanked those who helped her while she was there before adding: "Straight after [I] had to take my daughter for [her] first ever day at nursery."

The photos Steph shared saw her have her wedding band removed by a professional tool as her finger swelled around the metal.

Explaining to her followers what she did, she said: "The door closed on my whole hand and squashed the ring… then that's what caused the swelling. The ring was suddenly too tight."

Steph was informing her followers that she was trying everything before resorting to calling the fire services, but after many failed attempts, she had to make the call.

A source told The Sun : "Poor Steph was horrified to see her finger swelling by the minute.

"She was Googling various remedies to try and get it off but to no avail. In the end she called her local fire station who told her to pop round, and they'd get their tools out – a ring-cutter – and fix it."

Steph was reportedly embarrassed to head over to the fire station, but she soon went and they fixed her right up.

It comes as Steph is currently taking time off from hosting her self-titled show on Channel 4 during the summer break.

During the summer holidays the daily show has been put on pause but it will be back in September for weeks of chat-shows with various guests resuming.

The show has been successful since its launch in September 2020, with its one-year anniversary just around the corner.
