TV chef Heston Blumenthal’s sister was arrested last night after failing to appear in court for allegedly attacking their mum.
Troubled Alexis, 48, was quizzed by police after Celia was left injured.
She was charged with two counts of assault but failed to show up in court.
The first attack on 76-year-old Celia is said to have happened on September 9 in Watlngton, Oxon.
The second on October 7 allegedly occurred in Thame where the TV cook lives.
A source said: “Heston and his family have being trying to help Alexis.
“The second alleged attack was witnesses by onlookers.
“Police were called and Alexis was taken away in a cop car.
“The first one was allegedly at her house when no-one else was there so she didn’t press charges at first.
District Judge Tim Pattinson issued a warrant for her arrest at Oxford magistrates court on Thursday.
Heston’ flagship Michelin star restaurant, the Fat Duck, is just across the Oxon border in Maidenhead, Berks.”
