Fans rushed to rally around the star on Instagram, with one saying: “My god, you are an absolute trooper, not even a cast can stop you.”

In a post on Instagram, she shared her disappointment at having to take time off work to recover.
She said: “I’m absolutely gutted that I will not be able to do my two shows today after slipping on a dodgy wet pavement here in Blackpool and fracturing my fibula.
“Trust me when I say I was ready to go on in a wheelchair to do my shows today, as there is nothing wrong with my voice. But obviously for insurance reasons I can’t.”
As a result, her co-stars were quick to respond.
Ruth Langsford replied, saying: “Noooo! Oh Brenda, you poor thing…. Sending you lots of love darling.
Denise Welch added: “Omg are you kidding!! So sorry Brenda. Love you.”
