It is believed that she fell down some stairs and had badly injured her leg and ankle, which is seen looking very bruise.
Megan was surrounded by support including co-star Fenella Woolgar, as she patiently waited for her taxi.
Wearing a stylish blue patterned dress and a pair of hoop earrings, Megan remained calm.
She removed her black heel shoe from her injured foot and kept her leg slightly elevated.
The TV star was then seen being helped into a taxi and taken to hospital for treatment.
Megan later shared her ordeal with her fans on social media.
She posted clips of her arriving at the emergency department and from inside the hospital.
The star then shared a photo of her with crutches and revealed that she needed 17 stitches.
“17 stitches later I’m home,” she wrote.
“I also finally be that kid who has crutches.”
A further video on her social media, which she titled ‘Before it all went downhill’, showed the TV star posing on the red carpet at the Tric Awards.
