Giovanna Fletcher suffers nasty fall on stage after hearing 'BIG CRUNCH' as she shows off bruised ankle
GIOVANNA Fletcher has revealed she suffered a nasty fall on stage after hearing a "big crunch".
The author and presenter, 36, showed fans her black and blue leg and very bruised foot in photos on Instagram today.
Giovanna is currently playing Jenny in the West End supernatural thriller 2:22 A Ghost Story and said the accident happened during the show.
She wrote on Instagram: "Not quite how I imagined ending 2021 and starting the 2022, but there we go…
"I somehow managed to roll over on my ankle mid-show on Thursday. The big crunch I heard and subsequent pain have brought me to this new accessory.
"Needless to say I’m missing from @222aghoststory at the moment. To say I’m devastated not to be there is an understatement and at this point I think my heart hurts far more than my ankle.
"I’m resting up and doing all I can to be back on stage with @stephaniebeatriz, @buxtagram and @lostwaxprocess ASAP, but in the meantime I’m delighted that audiences get to see the wonderful @handyrhi shine as Jenny.

James, 34, recently revealed he'd love a role on EastEnders.
