Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall was left terrified after a stranger threatened to stab her at a music festival on Saturday.
Jade was threatened at Wireless Festival
Former The X Factor contestant Jade was making her way from the backstage area through the crowd of revellers to a raised viewing platform when she was threatened by the unnamed man at the Wireless Festival in London.
The singer was rushed to safety after the audience member shouted: "I'm gonna stab you!"
A source told The Mirror: "The only way to get to the VIP platform was through the crowd. A steward was leading the way for all the celebrities to get through but it was causing a bit of commotion. People were getting agitated because they thought Jade and the guys from JLS and The Saturdays and other celebrities were pushing in, while they'd been waiting to see Nicki Minaj for hours."

The source continued: "The celebs were brought out just minutes before she took to the stage. Nicki was on just before the headliner, Canadian star Drake, so lots of people wanted to get a good position they could stay in until the end. It was very tightly packed. Lots of people were making comments at the celebs but this one was horrible. A guy screamed right into her face: 'I'm gonna stab you!' It was really shocking."
Jade was lifted to safety by security staff who hauled her over a barrier and away from the crowds.
She said: "It was scary but I had loads of people around me so I knew I'd be safe. I think people were annoyed because they thought I was pushing in."
