KATHER­INE JENK­INS broke down in tears af­ter in­jur­ing her back dur­ing a semi-final per­for­mance on Danc­ing With The Stars. The Welsh mezzo-so­prano was near­ing the end of a fast-paced belly dance rou­tine with part­ner Mark Bal­las on the US ver­sion of Strictly Come Danc­ing when she mud­dled up a move and was un­able to con­tinue. The star later re­vealed to Twit­ter fol­low­ers: “Thank you for all your con­cerned tweets... I’m with the doc­tor, he says it was a re­flec­tor­i­cal spasm in my lower back.” The show’s judges re­as­sured tearful Kather­ine that she had de­liv­ered a knock-out per­for­mance, award­ing her 27 marks out of 30. :: JES­SICA ALBA has re­vealed that she felt “ob­jec­ti­fied” when she was younger. The 31-year-old ac­tress wanted to prove she was more than just a pretty face with a sexy fig­ure when she starred in sci-fi TV se­ries Dark An­gel in 2000. “I had a show that pre­miered when I was 19. And right away, ev­ery­one formed a strong opin­ion about me be­cause of the way I was mar­keted,” she told US Marie Claire. “I was sup­posed to be sexy, this tough ac­tion girl. That’s what peo­ple ex­pected. I felt like I was be­ing ob­jec­ti­fied, and it made me un­com­fort­able,” she added.
