Madonna has revealed she cannot bring herself to watch footage of the moment she fell on stage while performing at this year's Brit Awards.

The singer told Jo Whiley it was a "miracle" she did not hurt herself when she tumbled off a set of stairs after a cape she was wearing was pulled by a dancer.

She told the DJ in an interview on her Radio 2 show: " I haven't watched it back, I don't like watching me on anything. I hate watching myself because the experience of the actual thing that I did is never what I see. I'd rather have the fantasy of it in my mind, what I thought it was."

Asked if she had any plans to write an autobiography, she said: " I'm sure I will one day. I've got so many tales to tell.

" If I wrote my book, that would be from start to finish. And that's a whole lot of ground to cover.

"I think I would tell the stories that I felt were valuable to tell, that were inspiring, that people could relate to. I'm a storyteller, that's what I think of myself as, I would share stories that I think would inspire people."
