Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Bianca Gascoigne has been rushed to hospital in Dubai after developing a rare condition for the second time.
The reality star and glamour model shared a series of pictures on social media, including one of her in a hospital bed.
“I have quinsy again can’t eat or drink,” she wrote over a picture. “And painkillers aren’t helping the pain. Brilliant.
“And I have the kneck the size of a hippo.”
A representative for Bianca told Digital Spy: “Bianca is still in a really bad way. She is having intravenous treatment and is to remain in hospital until further notice. She is heartbroken as she had booked the last-minute trip to Dubai to surprise her brother, who she hasn’t seen in a year.
“Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.”
Bianca previously opened up about suffering from quinsy, which is a complication of tonsillitis and involves an abscess forming between the tonsils and the wall of the throat.
Speaking to The Sun, she explained: “The worst part about it that will haunt me forever – where it was such a bad infection – I was bringing up this horrible, horrible puss. It was horrendous.
“With quinsy they say it can be fatal because it’s poison in your throat and if they don’t catch it soon enough – if you swallow the poison, it is really, really serious.
“When it popped in my mouth, I thought I was going to die from the poison. This was at about 2am so we had to ring the surgeon to see if I was going to be alright. It was the worst thing I have ever been through.”
Bianca came sixth in the early 2017 series of Celebrity Big Brother, which was won by Coleen Nolan.
