After falling down a trap door while announcing the winners of the Radio 1 Teen Awards, Gemma Collins revealed she was seeking legal action.
However, the TOWIE star is now reportedly willing to drop her threat to sue if she is given a place on next year’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Following her fall at the SSE Arena, the reality star admitted she could’ve been left “legless”.
It was soon reported after she was looking for damages after the clip of her falling over went viral. However it’s now been stated she “will not pursue legal action” in exchange for a place on Strictly Come Dancing.
A source told The Sun: “Gemma is deadly serious about the Strictly trade off.
“She has said to BBC that she will not pursue legal action if they give her a slot on the show. She loves Strictly and has always wanted to have a crack at it. She thinks this might be her chance to get on the show.”
The 36-year-old fell as a hydraulic platform lifted out Love Island stars Amber Davies, Jamie Jewitt and Marcel Somerville after Gemma announced them as winners.
Afterwards, she revealed plans to consult a lawyer, and stated the BBC hadn’t issued her with an “apology”.
She said: “I’ve got to consult a lawyer, yeah. The BBC, they’ve not been in touch with any compensation or anything – or even an apology.
“It’s very important this gets sorted out because really you know what it is – it’s negligence. Do you know what I find shocking? The BBC hasn’t sent any flowers. Nothing.
“I’m in total shock. It is a miracle I am living to tell the tale.
“I could have died or at least been disabled at the end of it. I could have been legless. Legless!”
But BBC insiders said Gemma had been given a “full briefing” before she took to the stage and was warned to stay to the left of the door.
The corporation said: “The BBC takes the health and safety of everyone involved very seriously and we are awaiting a full report from Remedy – the production company who made the show – about the incident. But they have told us that Gemma did receive a full briefing before going on stage.
“Before Gemma went on the female producer told her there was a trap door in the middle of the stage. The [producer] told Gemma to stay to the left. It’s not true that Gemma wasn’t warned about it.”
