Jasmine Armfield almost missed her audition for 'EastEnders' because she was being violently sick
Jasmine Armfield was violently sick in a bucket on her way to her 'EastEnders' audition.
The 18-year-old actress - who is known for portraying Bex Fowler in the long-running soap - has admitted she almost missed out on the chance to join the popular show because she was struck down with a dodgy tummy on the way to her meeting with television executives.
She explained: "Honestly, I threw up so many times that I didn't think I would be able to go - but I was determined not to give up on the audition.
"I think I ate fish the day before that didn't agree with me, and so on the way to the audition I had my sick bucket in the car! If I hadn't gone, none of this would have happened."
Despite her worrying stomach, the brunette star managed to bag the part but wasn't able to tell anyone about the role until it had been officially announced by bosses.
Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, she said: "I told my school tutor I had an audition for 'EastEnders', which isn't the best idea if you don't end up getting the job! When I found out that I had got it, I couldn't tell anyone as it was all still a secret - so I had to tell my teachers and friends a little porky pie and say that I hadn't got it! They were really surprised and happy when I eventually told them the truth."
