Kym Marsh calls in sick for Strictly rehearsals this morning just days after suffering major panic attack


KYM Marsh has been forced to call in sick for Strictly rehearsals today after falling sick.

The TV favourite, 46, was due to get back in the practise room with Graziano Di Prima after surviving another week but didn’t feel up to it – just days after she suffered major panic attacks backstage.

The star impressed with Graziano over the weekend

An insider said: “Kym had a great week despite her crippling anxiety.

“Unfortunately she’s not well so has made the decision to delay training until she gets better.

“She knows she has to look after herself physically and mentally.”

Kym confirmed our story during a brief TV appearance today on Morning Live and insisted she would be OK to perform next week.

She said: “I will pull myself through, it is only one of those 24 hour things and I think you have got to get out there and do it, no matter what.

“Even if you have bits dropping off you have to get out there!”

Last week SE told how the Strictly cast and crew members had to console Kym amid mounting pressure in the BBC contest.

An onlooker said: “She was very upset she just couldn’t stop crying and hyperventilating.”

“In the end there was no choice but to stop rehearsals.”

Former Corrie star Kym was rehearsing a quickstep to Sweet’s Ballroom Blitz.

The dance received mixed reviews, but she impressed on Saturday evening as she tackled the Argentine Tango.

The pair got their first ten of the series from Anton Du Beke, while Craig, Motsi and Shirley all rewarded them nine.

Ecstatic, Kym could be heard saying: “I’m gonna cry, I’m gonna cry.”
