She had been unable to find his address and Stephen, 34, could not give a passcode to verify the order as he had left his phone at home.
He said: “I said, ‘I’ll take the pizzas and come back with it’, but she was having none of it.
“She went for me, punching and kicking me.

“That’s when my thumb ended up in her mouth and she clamped down until it came off.
“I was in agony with blood squirting.”
Stephen was told at hospital the thumb, which police are holding as evidence, could not be reattached.
He said: “This has ruined my life.”

A woman, 33, was arrested at the scene in Aldershot, Hamps, last week on suspicion of GBH with intent and bailed until March.
Deliveroo is investigating.
A spokeswoman said: “This behaviour is completely unacceptable.”
