Dead excited? (10)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'dead' is the first definition.
('breathless' can be similar in meaning to 'dead')

'excited?' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for breathless that I've seen before include "Short-winded" , "Still" , "Spent" , "panting?" , "Gasping for air" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
