British actress Jane Seymour is urging her peers to sign up for U.S. reality TV contest Dancing With The Stars - because her own experience on the show has given her a new lease of life.
The 57-year-old Wedding Crashers star reveals the show helped her lose over 20 pounds (nine kilograms) and realise a childhood dream.
She tells WENN, "It (show) lost me 22 pounds and put me in size zero, which was an interesting experience.
"And, in terms of me as a person, it was just by far the most exhilarating and exciting thing I think I've ever done.
"I can't begin to tell anyone how hard it is to do, especially if you're my age, have a bad back and do other things for a living.
"My dream when I was a little girl was to be a dancer, like a lot of young girls, so that was wonderful. I think some people who do Dancing With The Stars do it to get into reality programming, I didn't. It was just great."
