Two unfortunate incidents have befallen Ricky Wilson this week. The 37-year-old singer was reportedly ejected from the Brit Awards and, in a separate incident, was accidentally punched in the face.
It's not been a good week for Ricky Wilson. The Kaiser Chief frontman was ejected from the Brits on Wednesday (25th February) and was accidently punched in the face whilst filming The Voice, the episode of which aired on Saturday (18th February). 37-year-old Wilson attended the Brit Awards on Wednesday and a source, speaking to The Mirror, claim his night ended in a less glamorous fashion than the majority of his counterparts. Wilson was allegedly rowing with a female companion outside the O2 Arena in London and, when he attempted to re-enter the arena, was refused entry by security.
