THE SINGER OF Driving Home For Christmas Chris Rea collapsed while performing on stage in England.

It happened almost 50 minutes into a concert at the New Theatre in Oxford last night.

It’s reported that the singer-songwriter suddenly clutched his microphone and fell to the ground.

The 66-year-old was taken to hospital by ambulance and it’s understood that he’s now in a stable condition. It comes a year after the songwriter suffered a stroke.

According to Sky News, one audience member described the performer “falling into a clump”.

New Theatre Oxford sent a tweet after the show saying, “We massively appreciate everyone’s patience who attended the Chris Rea performance this evening.
