Witham: "I'm Alive!" Says Olly After Fall
Olly Murs is probably feeling a bit sore today - the singer slid down a flight of stairs during cover of Stevie Wonder song.
The Witham lad fell down a flight of stairs during his performance at the GuilFest festival in Guildford, Surrey at the weekend.
The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer was midway through a cover of Steve Wonder's 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)' when he took an unfortunate tumble.
Attempting to descend a flight of stairs to join the crowd, Olly slid from the top step and can be seen disappearing from view in a video of the incident.
Fortunately, the singer quickly regained his footing and could be heard telling a concerned security guard: "I'm alive, it's alright."
