Hurts star once put in hospital by fans

Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft has revealed that he was once hospitalised with a punctured ear drum after a group of frantic fans knocked him down two flights of stairs.

The star was in a fire escape in Spain when the mob came after him, he said: "I was standing on a fire escape of a venue in Madrid and a stampede of teenage girls burst through trying to get to me.

"They knocked me down two flights of metal stairs and I ended up in hospital with a punctured eardrum."

And that’s not the only terrifying encounter the band - who admit they have to get depressed to write music - have had with over-zealous fans. Theo also recounted a concert where a jealous girl sparked a bloody brawl.

He said: "I had a terrifying one in Estonia. I gave each girl a small amount of attention and this one girl was just staring the whole time.

"When I stayed with one girl for longer the starer came over and grabbed the girl by the throat.

"Then, five minutes later, there was an ambulance and a load of policemen.

"Suddenly, she bursts back in, blood down her face, eight guys chasing her, everyone screaming. She smacked the bouncers out cold."
