A source told The Sun: “Kym has had a great week despite her crippling anxiety.

“Unfortunately she is not well, so she has decided to postpone training until she is better. She knows she has to take care of herself physically and mentally.”
During an appearance on Morning Live on Monday, she said: “I’m going to pull through, it’s just one of those 24 hour things and I think you have to get out there and do it no matter what.
“Even if parts fall off, you have to get out of there!”

Oh no! It comes just days after the 46-year-old actress – who works with a ballroom pro – reportedly suffered a scary panic attack backstage (pictured in October 2022).
It follows reports that Kym suffered a severe panic attack and burst into tears during Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals.
The TV star is said to have been comforted by Graziano after training was suspended ahead of a live show taped last month.
It is claimed that Kym struggled to keep dancing, which prompted producers to comfort her as she calmed down, and hours later she got back on the floor during the live show and completed her dance.

Sources told the newspaper there was concern that Kym might not be able to perform while suffering from her anxiety, but she managed to complete her dance and was chosen to perform next week.
A friend told the publication that Kym’s anxiety is something she’s open about, adding that it can “get to” her.
MailOnline contacted a Kym representative at the time. The BBC declined to comment.
