Jimmy Kimmel’s Thanksgiving celebrations hit a slight snag when he accidentally burnt his eyebrows off while cooking.

Well, that’s definitely not ideal.

The talk show host, 54, was among the many famous faces giving fans a glimpse at their swanky festivities on social media.

Taking to Instagram, he blessed us all with a snap of his cooking mishap on Instagram, showing parts of his hair on his forehead and arms that had been singed off.

Alongside the selfie – in which he donned a cap to cover the rest of the damage – the star joked: ‘Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Try not to burn your hair and eyebrow off lighting the oven!’

Novel advice there…

Jimmy’s followers couldn’t get enough of his Thanksgiving update, and flooded the post with a mix of concern and humour. 

‘Jesus. Fine line between funny and 3rd degree burns. Glad for everyone you fell on the funny side,’ one penned.

‘How’s that smell? Defined Been there… Made me realise why we have eyelashes! It so our eyelids don’t stick together, lol! Glad you’re all right chef! Happy cooking,’ a follower replied.

‘Is it even thanksgiving if it doesn’t start off this way,’ an Instagram user teased.

DJ Khaled urged: ‘Take it easy my brother love and blessings to you and your family, happy holidays.’
