She has since claimed she thought she was ‘going to die’ and footage of the incident at London’s Wembley Arena has gone viral.

She told The Sun: ‘I’m in total shock. It is a miracle I am living to tell the tale. I could have died or at least been disabled at the end of it. I could have been legless.

‘I didn’t even know there was a hole there. No joke, my life did flash before my eyes. I thought I was dead.

She added: ‘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.
