Marcia Hines has revealed what was really behind her collapse in her dressing room ahead of part one of the n Idol finale last month.

The judge, 70, was rushed to hospital after she collapsed on the set of the reality series and injured her head in the fall.

She told The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday she had a Urinary Tract Infection which caused her to faint.

‘I was in my dressing room with my god children and some good friends, and I had my makeup done. I was sitting down, stood up and fell over,’ she explained.

An ambulance then took Marcia to Mount Druitt hospital where doctors confirmed she had a UTI.

Marcia told Daily Mail she promised the doctor she would return to hospital if he let her leave to attend the second finale night.
