LOUISE REDKNAPP - Jamie Redknapp’s former wife - was rushed to hospital with facial injuries after a nasty fall this week.
Louise Redknapp has been forced to pull out of the Dolly Parton musical 9 to 5 after a horror fall on Tuesday. The Eternal hitmaker suffered a large cut on her chin and it is thought a fractured left wrist, after taking a tumble on her way to rehearsals in London. The 44-year-old was taken to hospital where they reportedly advised her she could not work for at least two months. A source told the newspaper: “It happened on the way to rehearsals on Tuesday morning. She fell in the street.
“She went to hospital and had stitches. Then doctors told her she needs time out and can’t do the show.”
They added: “She is obviously completely devastated because this is a dream role for her. It doesn’t seem fair.”
Louise will miss the musical’s opening night, which is set to be attended by Dolly Parton herself, as well as weeks of performances.
The Savoy Theatre have issued a statement: “We hope Louise will start performances towards the end of March or early April.
“Due to an injury this week, Louise Redknapp has had to temporarily withdraw from performing the role of Violet in 9 to 5 The Musical.
“The recovery time recommended means Louise is no longer able to properly rehearse the show in the remaining time left before opening.”
