Former Hear’Say singer Kym was said to have burst into tears before she was consoled by twinkle-toed star Graziano, 28, ahead of a live show that aired last month.

Kym, who is said to have contemplated quitting the contest due to her overwhelming anxiety, told The Sun: ‘It just came over me, almost out of nowhere, and I couldn’t carry on.’ 

It is claimed Kym struggled to continue dancing, prompting producers to comfort her as she calmed down, and hours later she took to the floor again during the live show and completed her dance.

Former Hear’Say singer Kym added: ‘I’ve always suffered from panic attacks. It’s something I don’t mind talking about because I know it can affect anyone at any time.

‘Sometimes it has been ages (since an attack) and then suddenly one just hits.  

‘Everyone thinks that because you’re on the telly you must be amazingly confident, but the truth is that I’m not always and this is how that comes out.’

She added that she did not know what brought on the panic attack, surmising that it could have been that she’d had some harsh comments from the judges combined with the fact she’d also been working other jobs, leaving her emotional and exhausted.

Kym said she ‘lost her confidence completely’ and ‘went to pieces’, admitting she did not see how she could carry on with the show.  

Kym expressed her gratitude at the members of the cast and crew who stepped in to comfort her but said they had to cancel rehearsals at the time. 

An onlooker previously told The Sun of Kym’s panic attack: ‘She was very upset she just couldn’t stop crying and hyperventilating.

‘In the end there was no choice but to stop rehearsals.’

Kym was rehearsing the quickstep to Sweet’s 1973 song Ballroom Blitz which she performed in an earlier episode of the BBC show.

Sources told the paper it was feared she may not be able to perform while suffering with her anxiety, but she managed to complete her dance and was voted through to the next week.
