Venerable TV puppet Sooty has apologised to magician Paul Daniels after injuring him with a pizza.
The 73-year-old had to seek medical attention after a lump of food hit him in the eye during filming of a new TV series, according to reports.
Releasing a statement through master Richard Cadell, the 63-year-old bear said: "Sooty's very sorry for what happened. He never intended to knock Paul out, but he hopes Paul enjoyed the pizza."
Despairing at how the story had been reported, Daniels said: "The worst thing is that they've said Paul Daniels is in hospital. I am not. I'm fine.
"I don't even know what this is really about. Other than there's no other news for The Sun journalists."
Sooty & Sweep will air on CITV from September.
