Nicola, who plays Penelope Featherington in the period drama, explained that it was her inability to walk in heels which led to the unfortunate incident.

‘It was evident pretty quickly on my first day that I couldn’t walk in these heels,’ she began.

‘So I was walking along during a scene and then all of a sudden with my corset and everything I had no sort of central strength so I completely toppled over and landed on the ground.

‘I got up and was like “That’ll never happen again” and it happened twice more. I fell over three times.’

‘The third time I was carrying a parasol, which you know held in the wrong hands is a deadly weapon. I fell forward really quickly and I stabbed Claudia Jessie in the hand and it drew blood,’ she added.

‘That was my first day, that was Eloise, yes I stabbed her.

‘But, she forgave me we are still friends.’
