Louise has now taken to her social media accounts to share a photo of herself in a hospital bed, revealing doctors are forcing her to take time off work, meaning she won't be able to continue her role in 9 to 5.

So what happened to Louise and what has she said about pulling out of 9 to 5?

Louise Redknapp was rushed to hospital last night (January 10) after suffering a nasty fall.

The news means she will miss the opening night of the show.

The singer and TV presenter was left with a broken wrist and deep cuts to her face after the incident. Then doctors told her she needs time out and can't do the show.

"I wish the rest of the fabulous cast an awesome opening night and I will be back on that stage for 9 to 5 before you know it".

'She had a nasty fall on the way to rehearsals on Tuesday, ' they told us.

She was set to play Violet Newstand, Dolly Parton's role in the 1980s film. We hope that Louise will start performances some time towards the end of March or early April 2019.

"The recovery time recommended means Louise is no longer able to properly rehearse the show in the remaining time left before opening", the statement read.

"Together we have made the hard decision to delay Louise's start date in the show. Everyone at 9 to 5 wishes Louise a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming her back", the producers said.

Amber and Louise were booked to play two of the biggest roles in the whole production.

The Strictly star's cast mate, Love Island victor Amber Davies, took to social media to wish her friend a quick recovery. Any patrons who would like to exchange their tickets to a performance when Louise has returned to the show should contact their point of sale'.

However, bosses will have to act quick as the musical kicks off on January 28 at The Savoy Theatre in central London.
