Madonna says the tie on her cape was to blame for her tumble at the Brit Awards.

The Queen of Pop was closing out the 2015 Brit Awards with a performance of her single Living For Love when her cape, presumably intended to be whipped off with a dramatic flourish, yanked her backwards and down a flight of steps.

A collective gasp of horror was heard from the crowd in the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena, and no doubt from many of the 100,000 people watching the performance on YouTube, as Madonna crashed into the stage.

Ever the professional, the 56-year-old songstress soon recovered and carried on, delivering a fantastic performance – which unfortunately was completely overshadowed by the wardrobe malfunction.

Madonna was inundated with messages of support after the accident, and she thanked her fans for their support via Instagram after the show.

“Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight!” she explained.

“But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine!”

What a trooper!
