Former ATOMIC KITTEN singer Kerry McFadden was so stressed about taking part in a new British reality TV show she spent two days in hospital.

The 23-year-old admits her fears of embarrassing herself on national television in I'm a celebrity... GET ME OUT OF HERE! caused her sudden illness.

Kerry, who's married to WESTLIFE star BRYAN McFADDEN, says, "I was in such a state before coming here to Oz that as soon as I got to my mum's house I threw up everywhere. It was so bad they had to take me to hospital.

"My worst fear is that the British public will see me on TV and hate me. I don't want anyone thinking I'm a stuck-up cow.

"I am really worried I will be the first to get kicked out. I'm most worried that I won't get on with the other celebrities. I don't want people to say bad things about me behind my back."
