Singer Olly Murs has been injured on stage after a bottle of suncream was thrown at his face by a fan.
The 37-year-old singer who shot to fame on The X Factor was left rubbing his eyes after a bottle of suncream landed on his face.

"Why is Olly in the hospital bed? I’ve just had surgery on my left leg.
"For some of you who came to my Newmarket gig on Friday, thank you for your kind messages of support and just checking it was OK.
"It has been a mad 72 hours since the gig getting to this point.
"Basically after my second song, a fragment of bone that was in my knee managed, after I jumped, to lodge itself on the back of my knee which basically shut my leg down.
"During the gig I was just limping the whole time. Couldn't believe it. Basically, I am in, I have had the surgery. I wanted to get this done because of the Newbury gig on the 14th and Singleton Park on the 15th.
"I wanted to do this for you guys. It will be a different gig, I probably won’t be running around like I normally do.
"There might be a stool for me to sit down on. But I cannot cancel these gigs for you guys. It was such an amazing vibe on Friday at Newmarket so I will give it absolutely everything next week.
He finished the Instagram live by saying: "I'm going to stay positive and rest up for the next few days. Lots of love, everyone."
