Ferne McCann could have "died" after collapsing at the gym.
The 24-year-old star was rushed to hospital last month after suffering a fit when she fainted and hit her head after getting out of the Jacuzzi at her local gym and she's now revealed how the incident could have killed her.
She said: "I was lucky. If I'd passed out in the pool, I could easily have died. After 30 seconds I came around, but then felt myself jerking around uncontrollably."
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who received negative test results for epilepsy - believes she'd been working out too much in a bid to lose weight she'd gained over the festive season.
She confessed: "It had been two hours of exercising a day. It had been too much and it started to become an addiction."
However, Ferne admits that at first she believed she was pregnant with her and 23-year-old boyfriend Charlie Sim's baby and was devastated to learn that was not the case.
She told Now magazine: "When my friends heard I'd fainted they all thought I was pregnant... But then I took a test and it was negative. I was extremely disappointed."
