Patsy Kensit has revealed that taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this year has helped her get over the collapse of her fourth marriage.

The former Emmerdale and Holby City actress split from DJ Jeremy Healy in February, but says learning to dance has lifted her spirits.

"I was glad to be asked this year," she told the Daily Mirror.

"I would advise anyone to try it. If you've had a rough time, go to a dance class because it does lift your spirits - just don't do it front of Craig Revel-Horwood! It's turned out to be just what I needed," she said.

But Patsy admitted she may be the next contestant to leave the show.

"I am not a betting person, but if I was I would say it was probably coming to its natural end for me," she said.

"But that doesn't mean I won't try and put on a great show on Saturday. I have a responsibility to the fans of the show, there's a lot of them and they are really passionate about it."
