Celebrity chef Raymond Blanc is set to undergo surgery after breaking his leg in a fall at his home. Blanc, 60, fell down the stairs at his Oxford, England home on Monday (01Mar10) and his wife, Natalia Traxel, called paramedics, who took the top cook and reality TV star to a local hospital.

A spokeswoman for the star says, "He will have a minor operation to set his broken bones and will return home to recuperate. He is resting comfortably at the moment and thanks everyone for their kind wishes." (CL/WNWCMIR/KL)
