Britney has been showering her Instagram feed with bikini pictures and stunning views, but her holiday in Hawaii last month wasn't all sunshine and roses.

The singer has revealed that she had a near-death experience on the tropical island where she nearly drowned. Eeek!


Another great day!

While chatting to Scott Mills on Radio 1, Brit said: "I went out and I thought it was like a wave pool, and I as like, 'This is so nice and refreshing and just beautiful'.

"But the thing I didn't think about is when you come back, the waves really come in hard," she recalled.


Still dreaming a mile a minute…

"I got sucked under for like five minutes. I almost drowned. And I'm like, 'Where is my security? They are just going to let me die here.' And then I came in again and another wave took me under."

Thankfully Britney's team ended up saving her, but my God, that must have been scary!



The Script lads have opened up about their near death experience after their tour bus crashed – and said being drunk saved them!

The Irish band spoke about their trauma in America while on the road with One Republic earlier this year.

Guitarist Mark Sheehan said, “The bus crashed one night. We were in the middle of recording in the mobile studio and we were going 55mph on to the on-ramp of a motorway. The bus slammed to a stop and everyone went flying.

“A few instruments were harmed but everyone was OK. Thankfully we were pretty drunk at the time. The reality hit us the next day – that if we had been in bed at the time of the crash, we could have broken our necks.”

The band, whose new album No Sound Without Silence comes out on September 15th, have turned their tour coach into a mini-nightclub and renamed it the “craic house”.

Singer Danny O’Donoghue said, “We booked a load of lasers and a smoke machine for the bus so as soon as we finish recording for the night, we turn them on and have a DIY nightclub.”

As long as it doesn’t crash again lads!



A close source revealed that 33-year-old Kerry Katona, had a near-death experience after she gave birth to her little girl at the start of this month.

The former Atomic Kitten star had a condition called pre-eclampsia, which can cause high blood pressure and heavy bleeding after delivery.

The mum-of-five, who didn’t know she had this life-threatening condition, described her labour as ‘traumatic’.

“It was Kerry who was in danger. Her mum Sue was really scared Kerry was going to die. She lost a lot of blood,” revealed an insider.

Jorgie, who is believed to be named after Kerry’s fiancé, George Kay was fine.

Kerry even took to Twitter to thank all her loved ones. She wrote, “Thank you all so much for your kind messages, at last were both home after getting the all clear! It’s been very traumatic @mrgsjkay xxx”

It seems like they are both in good condition now, as Kerry shared her enthusiasm for Easter on the social media site saying, “Good morning….AGAIN!! @mrgsjkay has hid all the eggs… Let the hunt begin!! Happy Easter everybody xxxxx”



Cheryl Cole has opened up about her frightening near death experience after she was given just 24-hours to live.

The Say My Name singer has had a great year so far, re-joining the X-Factor judging panel and working on her upcoming fourth album.

However in a frank interview for Sports Relief, the Geordie star shares her terrifying story of how close she came to dying when she contracted malaria following a trip to Tanzania five years ago.

In a video that will be broadcast tonight during Sport Relief, the star sent out a plea for donations, that’ll help secure medication and essential supplies like mosquito nets for those in need.

“When I climbed Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief five years ago it was honestly one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. The motivation lay in knowing it could help in eradicating malaria and ultimately saving lives by providing mosquito nets,” the 30-year-old said. “I didn’t think for one minute that only a year later I would get malaria myself and become so ill that at one point I was given 24 hours to live.”

Sport Relief takes place all weekend and every penny raised will go to help some of the most disadvantaged people around the world.
