Presenter tells how drunken accident could have cost her dear

Miquita Oliver has revealed she nearly lost her leg after an accident on a night out.

The presenter, 24, says a drunken short cut nearly cost her a limb.

‘When I got the job on Popworld at 16 I went out and celebrated with my friend,’ she tells The Observer.

‘We got drunk and were climbing over a fence in Hyde Park when I slipped and impaled my leg on a spike. I was so drunk I pulled it out and still went to the pub.’

But leaving the wound to unattended meant infection set in.

‘The next day at the hospital they said a couple more hours and they would have had to amputate,’ she says.
