Ouch. That must have hurt.

British reality TV star Gemma Collins took quite a tumble yesterday and fell through the stage at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. Collins had just finished announcing the winner for Best TV Show at Wembley Stadium when she slipped through an opening in the stage. The Only Way Is Essex star posted the whole incident on Instagram.

Thankfully, Collins was OK. The TV personality posted another video letting fans know that she survived the "best and worst moment of her life."

"I'm alive. Don't panic," she said at one point in the video. "I'm such a Bridget Jones at heart. I've always watched her movies and thought, God this girl is me. I'm at Wembley Stadium presenting an award, and I go missing on the stage. But I'm alive guys….Will I ever live this moment down? O.M.G. Help."

Despite her tumble, it looks like Collins enjoyed her night. She appeared back on stage after the fall where she told hosts Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora that she was having "the best time of my life."

The TV star had a good sense of humor about her spill, too. Shortly after the incident, she posted a video montage of Madonna and Beyonce falling on stage.

She also posted the number for the National Accident Helpline, as well as a fake movie poster for Bridget Jones in which she replaced Renee Zellweger's face with her own.

In the end, it looks like her selfie with Ora made the whole thing worthwhile—even though the TV star confessed that she was in "agony."

We hope Collins feels better.
