Patsy Kensit shocked 'Strictly Come Dancing' producers earlier in the week when she almost passed out with exhaustion at rehearsals
Patsy Kensit was close to collapse at 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals this week.
The 42-year-old actress - who has been fitting in practises around her existing 'Holby City' commitments - is said to have caused a panic among producers of the BBC One competition when she almost passed out with exhaustion.
An insider revealed: "It's all very stressful for her. She's over-worked and worried about how much rehearsing she has put in."
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the show has confirmed the star has been putting in "insane" hours at rehearsals.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "She's been working insanely hard."
Patsy - who split from her fourth husband Jeremy Healy earlier in the year - is also believed to be trying to lose weight after having put on three stone in the wake of the breakdown of her relationship.
She recently explained: "If I can get back my confidence - which I lost earlier this year - and drop a few pounds I'll be a very happy customer. I want to tone up and get fit. I'm enjoying all the rehearsals. I haven't laughed so much in such a long time. Fear traps everyone so you have to leave it at the door."
