Actress trips over back stage during show

Jennifer Ellison injured herself during a panto performance on Friday.

The actress, who is starring as Cinderella at Liverpool’s Empire Theatre, suffered a suspected broken rib.

She tripped backstage during a costume change ahead of the scene in which Cinders goes to the ball.

But Jen, 25, completed the performance before she went to hospital. 

‘She was very brave,’ says a source.

Les Dennis, 55, and Cilla Black, 65, are also in the panto.
