Robbie Williams breaks fan's arm after fall

  • Print

Robbie Williams has broken a fan's arm after falling off stage during a recent gig in Newcastle.

The 'Candy' hitmaker left Margaret Nash, 52, in agony after he crushed her when he lost his footing and stumbled into the audience during his 'Swings Both Ways' show at the Metro Radio Arena last month.

Margaret missed the rest of Robbie's performance as she was being seen by paramedics before being escorted to hospital and spending the night there.

Metro Radio Arena general manager Paul Tattenden told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We attended to the lady after she said she had pain in her arm.

"We were later told she had broken it. We got in touch with Robbie's production company and they have been in touch with the lady."

Margaret's daughter Katie took to Twitter after the accident, which has left her mother in a plaster cast, to blast the singer, 40, for his bad manners after the fall.

She tweeted: "You fell on my mam and she's been in hospital with a broken arm. You never even said sorry."

Meanwhile, this isn't the first time Robbie has slipped on stage as he also took a tumble in 2006 when he tried to show off some fancy footwork during a gig in Leeds.

He told the audience at the time: "That will teach me for being cocky, won't it. I fell over like a t**t."
