SARA Cox revealed that she had already eaten DOG by accident – and only realized it after seeing the elbow.

The 46-year-old was a model in South Korea at the time and happily slipped into a “sort of bucket of fried chicken” – not knowing it was actually a dog.

Speaking about the incident on Alan Carr’s Life’s A Beach podcast, she recalls, “I ate a bit of dog by accident. I know! It’s a weird—- I mean, I should say I would never have actively eaten dog on purpose.

“My dogs are going to listen like what? It was in some sort of bucket style fried chicken, mind you, it could happen anywhere. Hi to all the dog lovers out there!

“But it wasn’t until I got to the bone that I realized it wasn’t a bone. It was a bit like an elbow. Spit the disc! It will be in my lower intestine somewhere now.

Opening up about her time as a model halfway around the world, she explained, “So they sent me to South Korea, Seoul, the fashion capital of the world … no, so I went there- down and I worked two separate trips and about five months in total.

“It’s amazing but if I went there now I would be just like, oh really drink in the culture, but I just drank their booze, I didn’t want any culture, all this amazing unusual food and I was just like , there ain’t even a McDonald’s here that’s bullshit Because you’re 19, you don’t care.

Sara is the proud dog of a Maltese Terrier called Beano, whom she is known to sometimes take with her to the radio studio.

She is also an animal lover with two cats and often goes horseback riding.

The radio star even recently took part in a 5k to raise money for the dogs and cats of Battersea.

It was previously very common to eat dog meat in South Korea, where it is known as gaegogi.

In recent years, the controversial practice has slowed down and it is now illegal to kill dogs for their meat.
