Gemma Collins was given warning from BBC

Words: Haonan Yuan | Subbing: Yujia Yang

BBC claims Gemma Collins was warned about the trap door on stage with a “full briefing” before.

The 36-year-old TV star dramatically fell through a trap door in the middle of the stage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Gemma previously stated she was going to sue BBC because she “could have died or at least been disabled at the end of it.”

She claimed that she “didn’t even know” about the hazard. However, it has now been claimed by BBC insiders that she was aware of the hole.

In response to Gemma Collins’s statement, the BBC told MailOnline: “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.”

Gemma Collins said she has already got to consult a lawyer.

“It’s very important this gets sorted out because really you know what it is – it’s negligence.” She said to The Sun, “Do you know what I find shocking? The BBC hasn’t sent any flowers. Nothing.”

But the public seems not to buy it.
