“Kate slipped and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure required by the production,” her representative said in a statement. “She is fine and will be filming, as planned, this week.”

Winslet returned to action on Monday and was spotted on the film set wearing a military jumpsuit with a makeup-free look.

The Titanic star is working on an upcoming historical drama titled Lee, which follows a photographer as she tries to expose the hidden truths of Nazi Germany.

The film, based on former Vogue cover model Elizabeth Lee Miller features a star-studded cast including Jude Law, Josh O’Connor, Marion Cotillard, and Andy Samberg.

Speaking last year about the project, Winslet told Deadline: “This is absolutely not a biopic. To make a story about Lee’s whole life; that’s a series worth for HBO. What we wanted to do, was find the most interesting decade in her life, the one that defined who she was and what she became because of what she went through.

“It was the period from 1938-1948 that took her right through the war and her most defining time. That is the story we want people to know about Lee more than the many other parts of her life.”

The 46-year-old recently learned how to hold her breath for several minutes whilst filming for James Cameron’s Avatar sequel.

She held her breath in a 900,000-gallon water tank for seven minutes and 14 seconds, which was longer than any other cast member, and she even beat Tom Cruise’s record by a minute.

The actress said it was "wonderful" to be underwater but was convinced she had died when she resurfaced.

She told Observer Magazine earlier this year: "God, it’s just wonderful. Your mind completely drifts off.

"You can’t think about anything. You can’t make lists in your head. You’re just looking at the bubbles underneath you. My first words [when I resurfaced] were, ‘Am I dead?’ Yes, I thought I’d died’."

Kate’s husband, Ned Rocknroll – real name Edward Abel Smith – trained with her underwater and during one dive, he blacked out.
