Hapless husband Tomas Paczkowski is regretting promising to show his better half he was hot stuff at housework - after accidentally ironing his face when the phone rang.
Tomas - from Elbag, Poland - was determined to show wife Lila that he was just as good around the home as she is.
"I decided to do the ironing while she was out at work, just to prove a point," he explained.
"Women are always going on about multi-tasking, so I set up the iron, opened a beer and put the boxing on the telly," he added.
But Tomas, 32, added: "Trouble was, I got so involved in the boxing that I wasn’t really thinking about what I was doing.
"So when the phone rang I picked up the iron by mistake and pressed it to my ear.
"The pain was incredible."
But Tomas added insult to injury when he sprinted to put cold water on the burn - and ran straight into the bathroom door.
"That gave me a black eye so now I look more like I’ve been in a boxing match instead of just watching one," he added.
Medics say he will make a full recovery from the burns - but Tomas says he's off housework for ever.
"It's harder than it looks. I really respect what my wife does now," he said.
