Red Nose Day schedule upset by Miranda Hart's injury

Tuesday March 12, 2013

Miranda Hart has thrown Red Nose Day plans into chaos after suffering an ankle injury, by stumbling in her high heels.

The comedy actress had to be taken to Newcastle's RVI Hospital following her accident which happened as she arrived at her hotel in the city last night.

She had been due to take part in a se ries of challenges each day over the week in different cities for Miranda's Mad March.

But the accident - which left her having to be pushed into hospital in a wheelchair - has already taken its toll. She has spent the first morning of her challenge being assessed by an orthopaedic specialist instead of practising for her bid to set a Guinness World Record to wax the greatest number of armpits in three minutes live on BBC One's The One Show.

Miranda said: "I should have known better, I was wearing a heel at the time, which is ridiculous as I'm 6ft 1in.

"To be honest, it was only an inch and a half heel but that was enough to do it, I normally only wear ballet pumps! I was in my hotel room and it just went. So much for my Mad March - this is now definitely going to be Miranda's Mad Hop."

After the first challenge, she will be taken to Manchester, Birmingham and Oxford, before finishing in London on Friday, which is Red Nose Day.
