The 76-year-old said she was left with a “totally mashed” hip which needed a replacement operation.

سابق I’m a Celeb star Edwina, who had an affair with then-PM جون ميجور, claimed the dog had already attacked other pets near her home in Whaley Bridge, ديربي.

She is considering suing for £5,000 in costs.

Edwina told The Sun: “I was walking my dog when it came bounding over not on a lead and sent me flying.

“Its owner just grabbed it and went off. He never asked how I was. I was on the floor in absolute agony, but he showed no remorse.

“It was the most terrifying experience of my life. I was numb with pain.

“It was awful. My hip was left totally mashed. I tried to get over the fall and hobbled around for 12 days.”

But the pain was so bad she had to be admitted as an emergency to Macclesfield Hospital.

Her joint had disintegrated and she was given the replacement within hours.

Now back home, she said of the dog: “It’s been in and out of rescue centres and it’s unmanageable.

“It’s a nightmare. It’s caused other problems in the area. It is owned by a couple and has pulled its female before and she was left with a banged head.

“I contacted Derbyshire شرطة and now it has to be on a lead with a muzzle when outside.

“I’m thinking about taking legal action to get £5,000 back that I have had to spend on private physio and on care for my own dogs.”
