Gemma Collins has pulled out of her role as Mama Morton in the upcoming UK tour of Chicago due to a knee injury.

The former The Only Way is Essex star was set to make her debut with the musical at the Sunderland Empire Theatre on 31 May.

However, a spokesperson for the production has confirmed that she has quit the tour on Tuesday (24 May).

“Gemma Collins’ management have informed the producers of Chicago she will no longer be appearing in the UK Tour of the show due to a knee injury,” a statement made to The Scottish Sun reads.
