All-Filipino girl group 4th Impact has been voted off on the quarter-finals of “The X Factor” UK last weekend. But after results were announced, member Celina collapsed on stage.
According to Mail Online, 4th Impact member Celina “fell unconscious” and was carried off by paramedics. Reports said that Celina “was out cold” for 10 minutes in front of the “X Factor” audience.
An audience member told Mirror that the girls’ mentor, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was shocked at what happened. Cheryl was talking to the girls when Celina collapsed.
The audience member said,
“Everyone was saying their goodbyes to the girls and then suddenly Celina hit the floor. Her sisters were shocked and Cheryl started calling for people to help. Two men ran on stage and carried Celina backstage, she looked lifeless. Cheryl had to stay on stage because of Xtra Factor but she was clearly shaken by what had happened.”
Cheryl admitted on “The Xtra Factor” that Celina wasn’t engaging in their conversations, Mail Online wrote. When Cheryl asked her if she was alright, the 4th Impact member “passed out.”
In another report, Mirror mentioned that Celina was heard speaking to her sisters in their native language before she collapsed. The site mentioned that some viewers heard Celina say “‘I can’t breathe” in Filipino language.
