"Somehow I watched the procedure as they stitched my tendon back - didn’t feel or even look like my arm."

Mr Whiteley had previously tweeted that he had severed a tendon in his thumb after slipping while using a Stanley knife.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Twitter account commented on Mr Whiteley's tweet saying: "Thank you for the kind words, David. So glad you had such a positive experience with us.

"All the best in your recovery!"

Mr Whiteley presented Inside Out East on BBC One until it was cancelled in 2020 and has presented two BBC documentaries about Star Wars.
