Sometimes you want to be in front of millions of teenagers, sometimes you want to dig yourself into a hole and never appear again … but not the one you’ve just fallen into.
Gemma Collins, star of The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) and internet memes was presenting an award at Radio 1’s Teen Awards today, held at Wembley Arena in London when she fell through a hole.
As she opened the envelope to announce Love Island as the winner’s for Best TV Show, she misjudged her footing and fell over the edge of a hole, in the middle of the stage.
Twitter has already blown up with comments and general reactions, do you want to have a laugh?
