My Kitchen Rules star Monzir Hamdin is in hospital and lucky to be alive after suffering a freak accident.
The star, who won My Kitchen Rules last year with girlfriend Janelle Halil, shared a photo of himself receiving treatment on Tuesday.
Monzir had a heavily bandaged face as he told followers he will need to cancel all upcoming appearances.
‘Unfortunately Monzir has had an unfortunate accident and is currently in hospital,’ the post began.
‘He unfortunately won’t be at the Cake Bake Sweets show this weekend or compete in the show as planned.’

Despite not sharing details of the accident, the pair said they were happy for the celebrity chef to still be alive after the accident.
‘We are so grateful he’s still here with us and is recovering slowly,’ they said in the post.
‘We aren’t sharing many details yet on the incident so we please ask for privacy at this time to process.’
The couple’s followers immediately wished Monzir a speedy recovery.
The couple, who were breakout stars of the last season, took home the $100,000 prize last year
‘Sending lots of prayers and healing vibes Monz. Get well soon mate,’ one fan wrote.
‘Wishing monzir a speedy recovery,’ another added.
‘Sending you guys love hope you get better soon!’ yet another wrote.
The couple took home the $100,000 prize after taking out the competition last year, with the pair telling Daily Mail Australia that they’d split the cash.
‘My went halves and Janelle bought a car with it. So she put $25,000 to a car and the other $25,000 to a house deposit,’ Monzir said in August.
‘For my half, I did half for the house and half for the business. Which I have built from the ground-up as it costs a lot of money.’
Janelle went on to say that pair ‘used it wisely,’ wanting to be ‘smart’, as opposed to just blowing their nest egg.
The couple now run Monzelle, which offers cookbooks and Monzir’s Sudanese Agashe spice mix, as well as doing pop-ups at food festivals.
