"Well, this is our first holiday show and I was really excited about it and we were running late, and I don't like to be late.

"So I was running in my heel which was a bad decision because apparently, I turned a corner and possibly did something to my ACL."

Making a joke about what a difficult year this has been so far, Kelly added: "It's fine. 2020, just the gift that keeps on giving."

The singer's fans were quick to offer up messages of support and send their well wishes, with one commenting: "Aww Kelly. Hope you are ok! Feel better! Take care." A second said: "Awwww! I’m so sorry, Kelly! Sending prayers and vibes for speedy healing."

Making reference to Kelly's recent eye injury – which saw her having to wear an eye patch – a third added: "Kelly!! First your eye and now your ACL? Slow down."

Kelly's accident-prone few months comes after she filed for divorce from her husband of six years, Brandon Blackstock.
