The former professional dancer told TV Week that she woke up in the middle of the night ‘with massive pressure’ in her abdomen and facing ‘horrendous’ pain.

But after being rushed to hospital and passing the stones, she was eager to get back to work and ‘light duties’.

‘I didn’t want a medical condition to stop me from what I was starting to fall in love with, and that was renovating,’ she told the publication.
