Patsy Kensit believes her days on 'Strictly Come Dancing' are numbered, as she is starting to feel her age
Patsy Kensit is ready to leave 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The actress - who narrowly avoided elimination from the competition last week after landing herself in the bottom two alongside Felicity Kendall - believes her days on the BBC One show are numbered, and is expecting this weekend's tango to be her last.
She explained: "I am not a betting person but if I was I would say it was probably coming to its natural end for me. But that doesn't mean I won't try and put on a great show on Saturday. It is the tango and I'm going to do my best. That would be a wonderful conclusion, ending with the dance I wanted to learn.
"I am here as long as people want me here, that's the deal. But I watch the others dance and think they are so good that they should go on. I am starting to feel my age. I feel like I've been hit by a bus."
Patsy also admitted appearing in 'Strictly...' has been an "amazing diversion" from the stress of splitting from her fourth husband - DJ Jeremy Healy - in April.
She said: "This whole 'Strictly...' experience has been such an amazing diversion from my life and from what I do as an actress.
"I was glad to be asked this year. I would advise anyone to try it. If you've had a rough time, go to a dance class because it does lift your spirits! It's turned out to be just what I needed."
