Viewers were stunned when Madonna took a painful-looking tumble during her performance

Madonna took a very painful-looking tumble off stage in the middle of her Brit Awards performance.

The star, who was making her first appearance at the awards show in 20 years, fell during her song Living For Love.

The Telegraph’s reporter Alice Vincent who was at the awards reported audible gasps from the crowd: “I overheard someone say ‘I thought it was part of the act.'”
