Louise Redknapp has shared a snap of her bloodied face after she was rushed to hospital on Tuesday morning, from taking a ‘nasty’ fall in the street on her way to rehearsals for upcoming West End show 9 To 5.

She added a caption on the shot reading: ‘It breaks my heart to say I am having to take some time out and won’t be able to continue with my role in 9-5. Due to a nasty fall I have only gone and fractured my wrist and got 10 (yes 10) stitches in my chin… 

‘Following my doctors orders- they have said I will be ok but as they say in the theatre ’the show must go on’ and I wish the rest of the fabulous cast an amazing opening night and I will be back on that stage for 9-5 before you know it.’
