Williams was performing in the north east as part of his Swings Both Ways tour on Sunday June 22 when he slipped and fell into a section of the audience. He was not immediately aware of having caused any harm to the fan.

However, as The Mirror reports, 52-year-old Margaret Nash was left with a broken bone following the singer’s slip at the Metro Radio Arena. “We attended to the lady after she said she had pain in her arm,” Metro Radio Arena general manager Paul Tattenden told the paper. “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.”

‘Swings Both Ways’ was the UK’s 1,000th Official Number One Album, the first being Frank Sinatra’s ‘Songs for Swingin’ Lovers!’ in 1956. It was Williams’ 11th Official UK Albums Chart Number One, making him level with Elvis Presley.

The tour continues. Robbie Williams will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (July 5)
London O2 Arena (8, 9, 11, 12)
