The 45-year-old star - who plays scientist Clarissa Mullery on the programme - is now recovering from a slash wound after a man in his 20s attacked Liz with a pair of scissors.

A man wielding two pairs of scissors lunged at Carr as her carer attempted to defend her. She is said to recovering from slash wounds following the attack.

'There was blood everywhere but she was very lucky that the wound grazed her head and she was not more seriously injured.

"Typically, Liz is putting a courageous face on it - joking that it was like being attacked by Edward Scissorhands", the source added.

Her friend said that the actress later joked that it was like "being attacked by Edward Scissorhands".

Carr has been bound to a wheelchair since the age of seven as she suffers from a rare genetic joint condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenital that causes the joints to permanently fuse in wrong positions.

The pal added: "She has no idea who he was and has never seen him before".

The actress is now being comforted at home by her female partner Jo.

The Metropolitan Police told Metro.co.uk in a statement: 'Police were called at 20:21hrs on Thursday, 10 August, to Euston Road, near to Euston station, to a reports of man attacking two women with scissors.

'One of the victims was in a wheelchair.

'Officers and LAS attended the location.

"A man - aged in his 20s - was arrested at the scene on suspicion of GBH". Both were taken to hospital after the attack, with the two women now both recovering from minor cuts, her carer having also suffered a broken finger.

'He was taken into custody at a north London police station.
