What happened to host Siobhán McSweeney’s leg?
During The Great Pottery Throw Down 2022, some viewers may have noticed that presenter Siobhán McSweeney is using crutches.

Siobhán was filming for the show in her hometown of Cork when the accident occurred. She took to Instagram in September to share that although she’d broken her leg, hampers that she received almost made it worth it!
