Emma revealed her terrifying hospital ordeal with a selfie alongside her doctor on social media.

Emma wrote: “It’s been a funny old week…. Post 1 of 2… A week ago yesterday, I was meant to take @mattjwillis on a surprise birthday trip to ibiza.

“Instead, at 6am, I entered Barnet General A&E with a stomach ache that was getting progressively worse. I thought I may be wasting everyone’s time with a bad case of trapped wind,

“But nine hours later, I was wheeled into theatre and what they found was a horribly infected appendix. The man in this picture was my surgeon, Marco Venza.

“He, and his team, were incredible. Thank you so so much for taking care of me and for putting me at ease every time I panicked!

She then added: “Thank you to Amy, Scarlet, Karen, Caroline, Sophia, Jan, Mary-Beth, Gemma, Maha, Clement, Gabriel, and all the other brilliant and kind people who work on Damson ward.”
