Emmett J. Scanlan slices thumb

Emmett J. Scanlan sliced a chunk of his thumb off on his first night cooking for himself after his wife Claire Cooper went away.
The former ‘Hollyoaks’ actor had to order a takeaway after he took a part of his digit off with a potato peeler while attempting to make himself a meal, after his significant other – who also starred on the Channel 4 soap – went to Prague to shoot TV show ‘Knightfall’.
He wrote: "Since @CLAIREECOOPER p***ed off to Prague I’ve become alot more independent. Like tonight I cooked for the 1st time. I say cooked, I sliced a chunk of my thumb off with a potato peeler & ordered take out. (sic)"
The 39-year-old star – who played Brendan Brady from 2010 to 2013 – joked that the History channel show’s bosses need to let his wife return home as soon as possible.
He tweeted: "Enough is enough @KnightfallShow, this s**t ends today.I want my wife back (sic)"
Emmett recently revealed he was rejected from ‘Hollyoaks’ three times until he was cast as Brendan.
He wrote on Twitter: "I got rejected from Hollyoaks 3 times before being offered Brendan Brady. The rest as they say, is history. #ShareYourRejections (sic)"
Claire – who played Jacqui McQueen from 2006 to 2013 – wrote: "But didn’t I ask for u twice ??? Didn’t I … instead I married you (sic)"
Since leaving ‘Oaks’ five years ago when Brendan was put in prison, Emmett has starred in drama series ‘The Fall’ and recent Netflix drama ‘Safe’, as well as blockbuster movie ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
Claire has made appearances in drama series ‘From There to Here’, ‘In The Club’ and ‘Love Lies & Records’.
