The TV personality from Brentwood, best known from The Only Way Is Essex, made headlines after tumbling into a gap that appeared as she was addressing the audience at Wembley Arena.

She escaped serious injury but Collins said she had been left with bruising and in pain and was in "total shock" after the fall.

I've got to consult a lawyer, yeah. The BBC, they've not been in touch with any compensation or anything - or even an apology. I am overwhelmed by everyone's support but if we just take a minute and watch that clip back it could have been the end of The GC. I can't back down from it.

– Gemma Collins, speaking to The Sun

A Radio 1 spokeswoman said the BBC was awaiting a full report from the award show's production company, Remedy.

They have told us that Gemma did receive a full briefing before going on stage.
