Robbie was performing at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena when he lost his footing after reaching out to touch fans’ hands as he performed, and crashed on top of Margaret Nash, who was believed to be in the front row.

Margaret reportedly missed the rest of the concert as she went to see a medic after the singer fell on her, and then spent the rest of the night in hospital where it was discovered she had a broken arm.
Metro Radio Arena general manager Paul Tattenden told the newspaper: “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.”
A friend of the Robbie fan has admitted that she was upset to have missed the rest of the concert due to her injury, saying: “She’s still in a lot of pain. She was devastated to miss the show.”
Robbie was performing in Newcastle as part of his ‘Swings Both Ways’ tour, in support of the chart-topping album of the same name.
‘Swings Both Ways’ - a follow-up to the singer’s 2001 album ‘Swing When You’re Winning’ - reached the UK top spot when it was released last year, and features collaborations with Lily Allen, Olly Murs and Michael Bublé.
