Thankfully Mikey has both sent a tweet and instagram update to his fans saying he is alright after the accident.
The pic does however show him covered in bandages across half of his face.
His fans have rallied behind him despite cutting the show short, with #GetWellSoonMikey / #GetWellSoonMichael hashtags going viral overnight.
Hopefully it is a quick recovery!
