Sam Fox has had a panic attack in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 50-year-old former glamour model had to be attended to by paramedics earlier this week after she was struck down with an overwhelming feeling of fear, began to tremble and was battling breathlessness.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Sam was not well at all. She was called to the diary room because they were concerned about her health. She had a full-blown panic attack.
"It got pretty serious and they were genuinely concerned. Medics were sent in to make sure she was OK and not at serious risk. They even had to give her medication to help her calm down."
Sam's panic attack won't be shown on screen as the scenes are said to be too distressing for public viewing, but fans will be able to see the blonde bombshell burst into tears when her mother Carole Ann Wilken enters the famous abode as part of this week's task.
And it seems her mum's arrival couldn't have come at a better time as Sam was left fuming on Tuesday (16.08.16) evening when Lewis Bloor and Stephen Bear brutally nominated her for eviction.
She screeched: "Great Britain does love Sam Fox! I've never had any trolls! I've been in the business 35 years, they know me as the girl done good. They call me Our Sam! I'm a good girl, I've always been nice."
Meanwhile, Heavy D spotted that something was up with Sam just before he was evicted from the house earlier this week and admitted in his departure interview with Emma Willis that she was "on the brink."
He said: "Sam is on the brink. She moans a lot. It's hard to tell if she really means it or she just likes a moan. She is finding it difficult."
Sam will go head-to-head with Lewis, Bear, James Whale and Ricky Norwood in this week's double eviction as the public decide to kick out two famous faces once and for all.
