Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she burned off her eyebrows in a cooking accident last year.

The actress spoke on 'The Graham Norton Show' about her love of cooking, saying that she singed her eyebrows while trying to cook rotisserie duck.

She said: "I've been cooking for a long time now, so I'm pretty comfortable, but I actually had a horrible disaster last summer. I got this rotisserie and I wanted to rotisserie duck and it's the perfect thing because all the fat renders off and you're left with crispy duck.

"You have to put drip pans underneath the duck, but I'm such a moron that I didn't realise one of the burners was on underneath the drip pans, so one of the pans caught fire. I don't know if you've ever seen duck fat on fire, but it's like a nuclear weapon and the whole thing exploded and we had to throw bits of it in the swimming pool. I had a fire extinguisher and I lost my eyebrows."
