Beverley Knight collapsed on stage

Beverley Knight collapsed on stage mid-way through her Children In Need performance on Tuesday (01.11.16).

The 43-year-old singer panicked the audience at London's Royal Albert Hall last night when she fainted while belting out the lyrics to the late Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You'.

A representative for the star told the MailOnline: "She was in a very hot dressing room backstage and left to go straight onstage, where she suddenly felt faint mid performance."

The performance came to an abrupt halt and the brunette beauty was ushered off stage by paramedics.

The medical professionals discovered Beverley was suffering from low blood sugar and, after 30 minutes of monitoring, she was given the all-clear and returned to the floor to perform.

The statement explained: "Medics saw her backstage afterwards. She had low blood sugar but after 30 minute she felt much better and they signed her off to perform the number later in the evening, which she did without further issues. "

Beverley hasn't had the best of luck in recent months as just three weeks ago her car was set on fire outside her home.

She was moved immediately to a hotel and has now employed a body guard as the cause of the blaze is still unknown.

A source said at the time: "Beverley is really upset by the ordeal and her management has taken her away from the situation.

"She's booked into the hotel and given her own bodyguard."

However, the singer was adamant the shocking fire wouldn't affect her work and was determined to continue as "usual."

Her representative said: "The cause of last week's fire is being looked into. Beverley is fine and it's business as usual."

Due to the extent of the damage to her car, police were unable to say whether the fire had been started deliberately.

A spokesperson for Met Police said: "We were called to reports of a car on fire and investigated to see if it was a result of arson. There's no evidence to suggest it was started deliberately."
