Pop star Edward Grimes was taken to hospital after falling awkwardly during a dance routine in Sunday's T4 On The Beach concert at Weston-super-Mare.

Grimes, 18, half of X-Factor novelty group Jedward with his brother John, slipped during a performance of their medley Ghostbusters/Under Pressure.

He was taken to Weston General Hospital for X-rays after the event held on the town's beach, but was later released.

The duo's agents could not confirm what injury Edward had suffered.

Reports suggested that the Irish-born star suffered twisted knee ligaments.

The concert, filmed live for Channel 4, attracted 40,000 fans.
