Naomi Campbell - Naomi Campbell Suffered Backstage Panic At Olympics Show

Naomi Campbell suffered a panic attack backstage at the Olympics Closing Ceremony in London when she became trapped shortly before she was due to step out in front of the crowd.

The British supermodel was among the famous faces who took part in a mini catwalk show during the 2012 Games celebrations at the Olympic Stadium in east London.

Campbell has now revealed she suffered a frightening technical hitch as she was about to take centre stage as part of a celebration of U.K. fashion.

In an chat with her supermodel friend Kate Moss for Interview magazine, she says, "We stood on this truck (before the show). I'm only saying this so everyone will understand that it was not easy. It made me totally nervous, that we were all stuffed into this truck alone. No one from the team (who wasn't performing) was allowed in. There was no one to help you. I got panicked. 'Am I standing facing the right way or do I need to face the other way?' It's best not to ask such questions at moments like that. I only said: 'Can anyone help me? I don't know where I should be.' I was afraid that I would get stuck, and that was the case. But the others weren't allowed to help me. There was some rule that prohibited it. And so it was; I went back down the stairs and got stuck."

Moss adds of the show, "It was madness. I had such fun. In the morning (before the show) I was a little scared. I was shaking as I got off the bus. I spoke to one of the soldiers on duty at the stadium. He asked me, 'Everything Ok with you?' I said 'No!' I was shaking and you could see that."
