The 31-year-old singer was overwhelmed during rehearsals as she prepared to bare all on the show. 

Nadia Bartel, Simone Callahan, Rachael Finch, Lynne McGranger, Georgie Parker, Lisa Curry and Ella Hooper were also part of the performance on Sunday night, which aimed to raise awareness for women’s health and breast cancer.

“I’m having an anxiety attack,” Casey then said.

Speaking about her panic attack, Casey confessed the performance is the most she’s ever been out of her comfort zone.

“Being the only plus, plus size woman in this cast, it’s confronting. I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis, I could feel it creeping in,” she said.

“It was a massive thing for me to take on board,” Donovan told The Morning Show.

“It’s taken me many years to be confident within my own body and stand my ground and go, I’m fit, I’m healthy, and I can do amazing things with my life.

“To bare half of me, when usually I like the lights off and for nobody to really see me in that state, it was a big thing to stand there and go, I am me, I am confident – this is who I am.”
