Natalie Appleton has spoken for the first time about the horror injuries she sustained after slashing her right wrist. She tells the Scottish Daily Record: “I’m in a lot of pain. Nerve pain is unique. I get what feels like electrical bolts through my brain every 10 minutes. The nerve in my hand is dying. It will heal well in 18 months, but I won’t be able to feel my fingers for at least a year. I’m on painkillers, but they can’t stop the nerve pain. The hand is completely out of use. It will never be the same again. It’s been a bad time.” Natalie severed a nerve when she fell on a champagne flute two weeks ago during a wrestling match in a Liverpool hotel room with sister Nicole and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher.

The Ontario born Appleton sisters are heading back to Toronto, unlike many of their pop peers who backed out over the SARS scare. “Absolutely,” confirmed Natalie when pressed on if they’re coming. “We were discussing that when all that crap about the SARS came out. And we were like, ‘What do we do? We can’t fly to Toronto now.” The interview likely took place before Friday’s report of a new outbreak though, so there still may be some doubt.

It’s not a good time now, but we’re both capable of doing it so who knows.”
