What a trooper. 5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford had quite the dramatic incident on Saturday night when his hair caught on fire on stage - but that didn't stop him performing at Wembley on Sunday night.

On Saturday Michael's hair caught fire due to a pyrotechnic on stage during a performance of She Looks So Perfect, and ended up with one side of his face in bandages - and fans shared the dramatic images on social media.

The show was then cut short, and Ashton Irwin told the crowd:

"Michael has hurt himself so we will not be continuing the show right now...Just want to say thank you so much for coming. He is OK. You guys have been the best crowd we could ask for tonight. Thank you so much."

Michael then took to Twitter to show fans the dressings on his face - and reassure them he was OK.

After being treated in hospital for his face burns, Michael returned to the stage and performed at Wembley Sunday night - and the band's reps released this statement before the show:

"Michael is recovering well after being given the all clear by doctors...He will join the band on stage tonight at the SSE Arena for their third and final London show. Michael and the band would like to thank all the fans, well wishers and particularly last night's audience for their support. There will be no pyrotechnic production for the show this evening."

After the show Michael thanked everyone for their support:

"There's been a lot of love spread around lately, thank you all very much. All of us boys appeciate everything you do!"

Glad he's feeling better - NO more pyrotechnics for the 5SOS boys!
