EastEnders star Luisa Bradshaw-White was rushed to hospital while filming the Christmas Day episode.
The actress – who plays Tina Carter in the BBC soap – revealed she put her hand ‘through’ the knives while filling the dishwasher in Gray Atkins’ (Toby-Alexander Smith) home.
Side note: The very same dishwasher where Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer) lost her life.
Lifting the lid on the painful moment, the 46-year-old admitted there was a ‘lot of blood’.
Watching last night’s tense instalment, one viewer tweeted: ‘I have so much fear for Tina right now, not the f**king knifes [sic].’
To which Luisa replied: ‘I actually put my hand thru them and had to be rushed to A&E whilst the whole crew stood down…. [sic].
When another suggested that alcohol could help her with the pain, she added: ‘Tequila sorts everything…’
Well, she’s not wrong.
Tina will be leaving Walford in upcoming scenes, after Luisa announced her departure from the serial drama in October.
‘I just wanted everyone to know from me that I am leaving EastEnders at the end of the year,’ she said at the time.
‘After seven awesome years, it’s time for me to move on and get excited about other projects! I have had the most amazing time on EastEnders and will miss the cast and crew so much. But I am also completely excited about the new adventures that await me.
‘It’s been an amazing ride. Being part of the 30th anniversary, the live eps, the Carter family, working every day with my best friends. Danny Dyer, Kellie Bright and Linda Henry, I love you more than anything in the world.
‘Thank you to all the amazing fans for your support and love of Tina. I have appreciated it so much. Keep watching – there’s lots of drama to come!’
It is not yet clear how Tina will be heading out of Albert Square as she is currently in the frame for Ian’s attack – despite having nothing to do with it.
Gray may also have a part to play in her exit, secretly crushing her alibi after she raised questions about his behaviour with Chantelle.
Shirley has suggested she flees as evidence piles up against her, but will Tina listen?
