In a recent interview, Channing Tatum revealed he is very lucky to still have his manhood intact.

Speaking to Howard Stern, during a SiriusXM interview, the *Magic Mike *actor relived the moment a crew member burnt his penis and balls while filming The Eagle in Scotland years ago.

"I started hyperventilating and screaming and jumping back in the back end of the river, because it was a hypothermic river and we had wet suits on, which was the worst part about it," explained the 35-year-old.

"So this poor guy, I gotta be honest...He had been, for 13 hours, running up a hill for like 15 minutes to boil this huge bottle of water, fill it half-full with like actual kettle water, run back down the nuddy hill and then like put the river water in it, and then come over to me, just to keep me warm all day."

In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Channing performed rewritten (by children) Magic Mike scenes.

Then when filming wrapped up and it was time for Channing to walk up the hill, his crew member offered to 'warm' him back up again for the cold journey back, when the scolding happened. Major ouch.

He described the feeling by telling the host: "You know when you burn your finger and it just keeps burning? It kept burning for like the next probably 20 to 30 minutes. I was having a complete panic attack."

And the last thing you want to hear from the emergency servies is that it's a "good thing it hurts" but luckily for Channing it was a good thing.

"‘I know this is no consolation now mate but it's a good thing it hurts otherwise you've got nerve damage,'" said Channing before admitting that during his rescue Sex on Fire was playing on the radio. Irony. Lol.

Channing said he burnt 'everything down there.'

"I didn't have skin on my penis," added Channing. "It oddly didn't scar. It's a resilient place down there. It healed pretty quick."
