One guest, who was at the scene when the incident happened, said: "The garden was packed with lots of people and I think the woman must have fallen into the pond or tripped over and ended up in the water.

"I think she nearly drowned. She was pulled out by Ainsley Harriott and some other celebrities before they laid her down on the floor."

They told The Sun: “She was coughing up lots of water."

Harriott has since thanked those who helped during the incident, confirming that it was his sister who fell.

He wrote: “Just a big thank you to everyone who helped my sister when she had a fall at the Chelsea Flower Show this morning.

“She’s doing fine and all is well.”
