Gemma Collins 'Wet Herself' After Falling Through The Radio 1 Teen Awards Stage

In an interview with OK Magazine, Gemma Collins has now revealed that on top of hundreds of thousands of people seeing her fall through a big hole on the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards stage, she also managed to piss herself at the same time.

We've all seen it - but let's just relive the moment for old time's sake.

The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins stands atop the stage at the Radio 1 Teen awards, ready to present the award for Best TV Show.

As she dramatically announces "the winner of the Best TV Show is... LOVE ISLAND!" she spins around in excitement but fails to notice that a trapdoor in the floor has opened to reveal the victorious people en route to accept the award.

And then she's gone. Swallowed up by the depths of the stage and - presumably - her own embarrassment.

It's a pretty hilarious and humiliating thing to happen, but - as it turns out - we didn't know the half of it.

She told the magazine: "The worst thing about it was that I wet myself as it was such a shock.

"James came running down from the audience to make sure was okay and all I could think was, I hope he can't tell I've wet myself."

That's some pretty good going actually - pissing yourself at the same time as falling down a trapdoor. A niche skill, granted, but a skill nonetheless.

Luckily, she was OK. A bit bruised, a bit battered and a bit wet, apparently, but OK. She assured the fans in the arena that she was fine, shouting: "Oh my god. Guys, sorry about that. This is live, this is what happens."

It sure is. She even returned to the show later on to have a chat with the hosts, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora. Presumably having changed - you'd hope so at the very least - she said: "Do you know what? Apart from stacking it on stage, I'm having the best time of my life!"

What a pro.

She can now look back on the incident and laugh, which is good. In fact, I defy anyone to watch the incident back and not laugh.

Since her tumble she has been catapulted to extra fame as a 'meme queen'.

The clip of her unfortunate accident has actually been a good thing in the long run. She went viral and has become somewhat of a social media sensation.

It's a risky business plan, but if it works for you, it works. Better to fall TO grace than from it, eh?
