The 2018 Miss Universe pageant held a particular relevance for Spain: for the first time in the history of the competition, there was a transgender contestant, Ángela Ponce, a native of Seville.

The woman, who co-hosted the event alongside Steve Harvey, Lu Sierra and Carson Kressley, took to social media to share with her many followers some footage of her injuries as she was getting treated.

Despite the injury, Ashley continued to co-host Miss Universe until the end when she got to congratulate this year's victor, Miss Philippines, Catriona Gray.

Hung was captured on camera talking with Miss USA, Sarah Summers, and Miss Colombia, Valeria Molares, about how hard it would be for Miss Cambodia, Rern Sinat, competing in the pageant as a woman who can not speak either English or Spanish.

"Show's over, but the doctors came to the rescue", Graham praised. I am going really fast'.

"Praying for good weather, world peace and for Catriona to win Miss Universe!" she wrote. "Oh it stings, but it's worth it".

In another Instagram, Ashley commented, "It actually looks worse than it feels, except for it is throbbing a bit".

"She's a well brought up pageant girl", Hung said, concluding that Gray will be "amazing" as Miss Universe.
