Gemma Collins has admitted that she is going to sue the BBC after she fell down a hole in the stage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday afternoon.
Gemma has now admitted that she was worried that she was going to be crushed by a hydraulic platform that was raising Love Island stars.
Talking to The Sun Gem said:
“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. Legless!
I’m not being funny, I didn’t even get a tenner for turning up. I didn’t even know there was a hole there.
“To be honest when it happened I didn’t know where I was, what day of the week it was. No joke, my life did flash before my eyes. I thought I was dead.
“People couldn’t see it, but underneath the stage there’s a lot of machinery and the Love Island people were coming up on a platform.
“When I actually went down into the pit, they were screaming, ‘Get her up because her legs are going to get crushed, her legs are going to get crushed’.
“I felt so sorry for Marcel because he obviously took my weight. I went straight on to him. The little girl got knocked down.”
Gemma then admitted that she has been in touch with her lawyer as she continued to say:
“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.
“It’s very important this gets sorted out because really you know what it is — it’s negligence.
“Do you know what I find shocking? The BBC hasn’t sent any flowers. Nothing.
When Gemma called into This Morning today she was being asked questions by the hosts of the show and she keeped on saying that it “was in the hands of her layers”.
