Bent Glow plug (with Pic)

My JTDm has had a little trouble starting in the morning so I though i'd check the glowplugs. The multimeter reading on 4th one was difficult to get so I removed it. Once it was out I noticed the main shaft (the middle bit) of the glowplug was bent/warped, the actual tip - the bit that heats up - seemed ok.

I've not noticed any noises from the engine that indicated anything serious, was just wondering if anyone else has had this?

Ive added a pic, hope it works.

The tip of the glowplug doesnt look like its had an impact, any ideas what might have caused this?!
