The flamboyant designer shared his near-death experience after responding to a post which claimed he had died in a “hot air balloon incident” a decade ago.

“I didn’t die but I did get a smut or two on my white suit.
“It was whilst filming the Holiday Show for the BBC we narrowly missed crashing into the Alhambra.
