£1m Bullet Stops Show

A dummy bullet sped off course - and cost a TV company £1million.

Instead of hitting a wall it hit actor Kal Weber in the head. And filming on the new Professionals series had to stop for two weeks for his cuts to heal - at a cost of £500,000 a week.

Kal, 28, who plays agent Chris Keel in the remake of the seventies Bodie and Doyle classic on Sky 1, said: "We had taken every safety precaution.

"But a doctor told me that if the bullet had hit an inch lower it would have exploded in my eye and I would have lost it."

Kal added: "The actor who fired the gun was really nervous when we re-shot the scene, but this time it went off without a hitch."
