Former Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten has revealed she recently nearly died from having “dangerously high” calcium levels in her body. The soap star opened up about her near-death experience on ITV’s Lorraine. “It was only two months ago that this all happened really,” she said.
Oaten said her life-threatening condition was years in the making, however.
She explained: “I had not been feeling well for a while to be honest but I didn’t practice what I preached and I just put it down to one side.
“We’d had a big funding cut for the charity that I am CEO of and I’d put it down to stress and the pressure of that. I was also doing a morning breakfast radio show so I was getting up early at half past four and doing my full time job and then auditions so I just put it down to nausea, feeling tired.”
The star was also experiencing bouts of “stomach cramps”, which she attributed to anxiety and stress.
