Beverley Knight is doing “fine”, after briefly worrying fans when she fainted during a live performance.

The singer was one of several acts to take to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday (1 November) night, for the Children In Need Rocks for Terry concert.

Her performance was brought to an abrupt halt, though, when she collapsed on stage in the middle of a cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’.

As reported by The Sun, medics quickly rushed to take Beverley back stage, where she was taken care of.

A spokesperson for the BBC said: Unfortunately Beverley Knight was feeling faint whilst performing on stage at BBC Children In Need Rocks for Terry.

“She has since been attended to by medics, is feeling much better, and we wish her the very best as she makes a full recovery.”

After recuperating back stage, Beverley even returned to the stage later in the evening to finish the number, which won her admiration from fans in the audience and on social media.

A spokesperson for Beverley later explained: “She was in a very hot dressing room back stage and left to go straight on stage where she suddenly felt faint mid-performance.

“Medics saw her back stage afterwards and said she had low blood sugar but after 30 mins she felt much better and they signed her off to perform the number later in the evening - which she did without further issues.”

Beverley is best known for her hits like ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda’, but has since carved a new career in the West End, most notably in ‘The Bodyguard’.
