A television presenter was stabbed in the neck at a Norfolk village store after trying to calm an angry customer, it was alleged in court today.

Jurors at Norwich Crown Court saw closed circuit television footage of the moments leading up to the incident in which MTV star Matthew Pritchard, of Cardiff, was hurt.

Prosecutor Lindsay Cox said Pritchard was trying to stop customer Mark Smith being abusive when he was attacked at the Co-op store in Toftwood, in September 2009.

Smith, 42, of Toftwood, denies wounding and possessing an offensive weapon.

Jurors were told Pritchard presented and starred in a show called Dirty Sanchez.

Mr Cox said Pritchard, who was 36 at the time of the incident, needed stitches.

He said Smith had become abusive after failing to cash a Giro cheque.
