And he claims the accident destroyed his stage dreams.

His attorney, David White, told the Supreme Court he can stand and sing but cannot dance, run up stairs, work with the moving scene or lift his co-star.

He added: “He couldn’t go back to the physical requirements of being a top West End stage performer.”

Mr. Forster played Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar after winning ITV Superstar in 2012.

He appeared in The Phantom of the Opera and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

But his career was derailed when he fell from an 8ft wheeled ladder at the Lowry Theatre, in Salford, Manchester, in January 2018.

The Sunderland-born performer claims the ladder was turned too violently by the elves.

Elf producer The Musical (UK) Ltd denied negligence. The trial date will be fixed at a later date.
