Former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett has been admitted to hospital. She was rushed to the Princess Royal Hospital in Bromley, Kent, to treat a severe kidney infection. A source told The Sun newspaper:

"She was on the way to the theatre. It's a severe kidney infection. She's very clean-living. She doesn't drink or smoke and looks after herself, although she is a workaholic."

Roxanne was travelling to Cambridge for her role in 'The Rocky Horror Show' when the crippling pain struck.

The 29-year-old actress - who is dating her co-star Harry Neale - has been undertaking a tough training routine since landing the part of Janet Weiss in the cult musical.
