Kim Marsh said there were times during Strictly Come Dancing when her anxiety “raised its head.”
The former Coronation Street star, who had to take a week off during her BBC One show due to Covid-19, danced the American Smooth in honor of her son Archie, who died prematurely in 2009.
She’s “proud” of how she’s learned her limits both in rehearsals and live shows.
In the February issue of Prima UK magazine, she said:
“I never thought I was the one to be with the best dancers, but the whole experience has taught me to trust myself more. Proud.
The 46-year-old star has “always” been candid about her experiences with anxiety, and during her Strictly spell it “could take hold.”
“I was nervous, but I discovered that I could beat it and take control. I realized that I can overcome what I can’t do.
Kym was the 10th celebrity to leave Strictly after an intimate musical week dance-off with CBBC star Molly Rainford.
Knowing her destiny, she said she wanted to make her father happy, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer and is undergoing hospital treatment.
Following the final of the show, in which Wildlife photographer Hamza Yassin and his professional partner Jowita Priztal hoisted the Glitterball trophy, Kim reflected and said: my grandson.
“The last few years have been about setting my goals high and challenging myself – and I plan to keep doing that. I want to keep testing my limits and prove myself.
