X Factor semi-finalist Stacey Solomon has been injured after she took a tumble during rehearsals for Saturday’s show.

The Sun reports that the Essex girl was practising a dance routine on top of chairs when she missed her footing and crashed to the stage.

After sustaining bruises in the fall she attempted the move again – but reportedly fell down a second time.

According to the paper show bosses are now debating whether or not to feature the dance number in Saturday’s programme.

The complicated routine requires Stacey to walk across chairs which are whipped into place by dancers at the last minute.

It’s intended to be one of the highlights of Saturday’s semi-final, which will be a Michael Jackson tribute show.

An X Factor insider said choreographer Brian Friedman came up with the “crazy routine” that Stacey has been rehearsing.

“Not being a natural mover, she has struggled with it,” the source said.

“She came crashing down on stage twice in rehearsals – and she’s not been helped by having to do it in killer high heels.”
