Louise Redknapp has announced she will temporarily withdraw from performing the role of Violet in 9 to 5 The Musical.
The ex-member of Eternal fell on Tuesday, cutting her chin and fracturing her wrist, resulting in her being signed off work for two months.
The star shared a photo of her bloodied face after she was rushed to hospital following the ‘nasty fall’ in the street on her way to rehearsals for 9 To 5.
In a statement, producers told Encore Radio:
“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. Together we have made the difficult decision to delay Louise’s start date in the show. We hope that Louise will start performances sometime towards the end of March/early April 2019. Everyone at 9 to 5 wishes Louise a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming her back”.
