BEIJING • Chinese actress Angelababy has injured her finger while filming variety show Keep Running, according to the Sina Entertainment website.

Angelababy is currently filming the show in Anshan city in China's Liaoning province. She was spotted by netizens at a local hospital on Wednesday night, wearing a silver jacket with her name on it and accompanied by crew members.

Sources said she sought treatment only after filming ended as she did not want to interrupt the filming.

This is not the first time Angelababy has been injured while filming Keep Running, the Chinese version of South Korean variety show Running Man.

She was hit by a giant ball in June 2017. Media reports in December 2017 said she also fractured one of her fingers while playing a game on the show.

The hit show last month announced a change in cast members, with Deng Chao, Michael Chen, Wong Cho Lam and Lu Han leaving.

They were replaced by Zhu Yawen, Ian Wang, Lucas Wong and Song Yuqi.

Angelababy returned to film the show in April 2017 after giving birth to her son in January that year. She is married to Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming.
