Saturday Kitchen star Matt Tebbutt has revealed he is in hospital after having emergency surgery.

The chef and BBC star, 48, shared a picture on Instagram showing him hooked up to a drip after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix.

The snap mainly showed hospital equipment but the star's masked face was just visible in the corner.

Matt – who is in hospital in Wales – told his 62,000 followers on the site that he was "so grateful" to the NHS.

"Me, a morphine drip and an emergency appendectomy are keeping me from a much anticipated lunch at @manteca_london with @ollysmith @sarah10016 @hardiegrantuk… but everything and everyone here at The Grange hospital in Gwent have been fantastic," he said.

"Couldn't ask for more from such a brilliant health service. So grateful."

He added the hashtags "#nhs #nhsnurse #thegrangehospital #appendectomy".

The star got plenty of love from his fans and fellow celebs after posting the health update.

"Oh no!!! Get better soon Matt," said chef and fellow Saturday Kitchen presenter Shivi Ramoutar.

"Still looking bright eyed though," she added.

"Ouch," said Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid, adding a red heart emoji.

A Place In The Sun star Amanda Lamb posted: "Sending lots of love. You poor thing. Need a bed bath?"

Jimmy's Farm star Jimmy Doherty quipped that it was a "liquid lunch" for Matt.

"Babe!!!!!" posted chef Andi Oliver. "Bloody Nora! Get better soon my love! Thank god you're ok!"

Olly Smith, Matt's colleague on the BBC show and one of the people he was meant to be lunching with, joked: "Doubled down on the order in your honour. Love ya x."

He also shared a picture of the pair on his own Instagram account.

"Wishing my buddy @matt.tebbutt the speediest recovery from today's appendectomy," he said.

"Sending love and strength from every best bottle in my cellar."

Matt replied to say thank you and told him: "We'll have to reschedule yesterday's lunch. I ain't missing out!!"
