The actress added, ‘I’m fairly crook at the moment and have been to hospital a couple of times but slowly improving. I won’t be on social media a lot due to the fact I’m sleeping like 12 hours a day but wanted to let you all know I’m still here and am trying to get better as soon as possible.’

‘Thanks for the constant support love you all lots x (also thanks mum for taking photos of me passed out).’
