Call The Midwife star Megan Cusack had to be rushed to hospital for 17 stitches after apparently taking a tumble at the TRIC Awards.

The actor – who plays pupil midwife Nancy Corrigan in the much-loved BBC drama – hurt herself when she fell at the ceremony in London, with reports suggesting she fell down the stairs and hurt her leg.

She was later seen being pushed outside in a wheelchair.

Cusack later relayed her visit to hospital to her fans on Instagram, revealing that she had to have 17 stitches.

The actor first shared a video showing her arriving at the hospital along with her co-star Fenella Woolgar.

And she later posted a picture with the words: “17 stitches later I’m home.”

"I also finally be that kid who has crutches,” she added.

Earlier, the actor was seen walking the red carpet in a bright blue patterned dress and heels, with her hair pulled back into a high ponytail.

The 25-year-old is the niece of Sinead Cusack and Jeremy Irons is one of her uncles.

She joined Call The Midwife as Nancy this year, and previously told Hello! magazine that the rest of the cast put her at ease straight away on her first day.
