Taking to Instagram, Giovanna shared a photo of herself in a boot brace alongside a snap of her ankle looking very bruised, writing: "Not quite how I imagined ending 2021 and starting the 2022, but there we go… I somehow managed to roll over on my ankle mid-show on Thursday. The big crunch I heard and subsequent pain have brought me to this new accessory.

"Needless to say I’m missing from @222aghoststory at the moment. To say I’m devastated not to be there is an understatement and at this point I think my heart hurts far more than my ankle. I’m resting up and doing all I can to be back on stage with @stephaniebeatriz, @buxtagram and @lostwaxprocess ASAP, but in the meantime I’m  delighted that audiences get to see the wonderful @handyrhi shine as Jenny.
