Felicia Mabuza-Suttle had a health scare recently that resulted in her spending eight hours in the hospital.

The former South African talk show host (and living legend) took to Instagram to thank one of her friends for being by her side during the ordeal. 

"Thank you, Selma. When you should be spending your day off doing something more exciting than sitting by a hospital bedside for close to 8 hours caring for me," she wrote. 

The scare turned out to be a "false alarm" and Felicia is already up and about doing what she loves - dancing her heart out. 

"Had a little health scare. False alarm thank the Lord. The doctor gave me a clean bill of health and told me to go and #chacha again! Love my new animated dance instructor at #FredAstaireStudio," she captioned a video from her dance class.

The TV presenter celebrated her 69th birthday earlier this month. Her daughter Zani Suttle and her husband Andreas Anderskou gave her a "beautiful wake up" when they sang happy birthday to the icon. 

As far as Felicia is concerned, she is "eternally 29".

"I've lost count and 29, is how I feel inside and out... If you are trying to calculate, remember the wise words of Robert Frost who aptly said, "A diplomat is a person who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age." Age is just a number, and I love the number 29. Make sure when I leave this world, on my tombstone, you engrave, Eternally 29!"  

Judging by her chacha, she certainly has the moves of a 29-year-old.
