Sugababes' Heidi Range accidentally ripped her dress during a highly energetic performance at a charity fundraising gig.
The singer was showing off some dance moves when the seam at the side of her black dress gave way - leaving a two-inch tear - as she sang new single Wear My Kiss with bandmates Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen at the Fight Cervical Cancer In Style concert.
The star-studded music and fashion show at London's Koko, which also saw performances by Brit nominees La Roux and Pixie Lott, was held by Jo's Trust to raise awareness about cervical cancer among girls and women.
Amelle said on stage: "We are so passionate about this cause and would urge girls to reduce their risks of cervical cancer - we had no idea how to prevent cervical cancer and actually we always thought it was genetic but through taking part in this campaign, we now realise it is sexually transmitted.
"By leading a healthy lifestyle, going for regular smears and having a vaccination you can help to reduce the risks hugely," she added.
