The singer accidentally hurts a crowd member

Robbie Williams broke a fan’s arm after falling off the stage at his gig, it’s been claimed.

The singer, 40, was performing at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena last week when he was filmed appearing to high-five part of the crowd before stumbling over.

Now it’s been said that gig-goer Margaret Nash was accidentally injured by the dad-of-one while watching him sing from the front row.

Margaret, 52, missed the rest of Robbie‘s Swings Both Ways concert as she had to be treated by medics before spending a night in hospital.

She’s now sporting a purple plaster cast that covers her right arm.

Margaret – who’s from Horden, County Durham – chose not to comment last night but a friend says she’s ‘in alot of pain’ and was ‘devastated to miss the show’.

Metro Radio Arena‘s general manager Paul Tattended told the Daily Mirror: ‘We attended to the lady after she said she had pain in her arm.

‘We were later told she had broken it. We got in touch with Robbie‘s production company and they have been in touch with the lady.’
