THE OFFICE star Lucy Davis was rushed to hospital over the Christmas period with suspected kidney failure.

The 32-year-old, who plays receptionist DAWN TINSLEY in the cult BBC series, was spending Christmas with her comedian father JASPER CARROT when she collapsed in agonising pain and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England.

Carrot, 60, says, "She was in a fair amount of pain but she is fine now.

"She's had diabetes for years, but she has not been diagnosed with any new condition."

Davis returned to her father's home last night (01JAN06) and is said to be recovering well.
