British actress Jennifer Ellison is nursing a broken wrist after her hand was crushed in a stage accident in England on Wednesday (14Sep11).
The Cottage star was forced to pull out a live performance of the musical Calendar Girls at the Sunderland Empire after she was hurt trying to stop a piano from toppling over just 30 minutes before showtime.
But Ellison refused to let the injury derail her for long - she returned to the stage the following day wearing a bright pink cast.
Her spokesperson says, "She is back at work doing the show. Everyone in the business knows that Jennifer is a real trouper and won't let anyone down."
