Louise Redknapp: Injury forces her to pull out of musical

Louise Redknapp has been forced to pull out of West End musical 9 to 5 after being rushed to hospital.

The former Eternal singer and Strictly Come Dancing star has had no choice but to give up her role in Dolly Parton’s show after suffering a deep gash on her chin and fracturing her left wrist in a freak accident.

She was given urgent treatment for her injuries, but told that she cannot work for at least two months.

It means she’ll miss the show’s opening night in London – set to be attended by Dolly herself – as well as weeks of performances.

A source close to the star told The Sun : “It happened on the way to rehearsals on Tuesday morning. She fell in the street.

“She went to hospital and had stitches. Then doctors told her she needs time out and can’t do the show.

“She is obviously completely devastated because this is a dream role for her. It doesn’t seem fair.”
