Gemma Collins Is Considering Suing The BBC After Stage Fall

Gemma Collins has said she's considering suing the BBC after she fell through a trap door at the Radio 1's Teen Awards on Sunday.

The Only Way Is Essex star fell through the stage while she was talking to the audience alongside some of the stars of Love Island. And it wasn't long before clips of her fall where absolutely everywhere.

I think we can all agree it's one of the televisual highlights of 2017.

Gemma reckons it's a 'miracle' she's 'living to tell the tale', telling the Sun that she 'could have died or at least been disabled at the end of it.' Adding that under the stage there was machinery which could have left her 'legless'. She's now considering taking legal action against the BBC.

Speaking to the Sun, Gemma said: "I've got to consult a lawyer, yeah. The BBC, they've not been in touch with any compensation or anything - or even an apology.

"It's very important this gets sorted out because really you know what it is - it's negligence.

"Do you know what I find shocking? The BBC hasn't sent any flowers. Nothing."

A spokesperson from Radio 1 told the paper: "The BBC takes the health and safety of everyone involved very seriously and we are awaiting a full report from Remedy, the production company who made the show, about the incident, but they have told us that Gemma did receive a full briefing before going on stage."

However, Gemma claims she wasn't fully briefed and wasn't even aware that people would be coming up onto the stage from below.

Gemma initially seemed to see the funny side of her fall, sharing this post to her Instagram page, which is pretty hilarious.

But has said she was left in pain following the fall, she told This Morning: "Yes I'm in a bit of pain, but it was the best moment of my life. It was one of those moments I don't think I am ever going to live down." I think she's got a good point there.
