Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh has detailed the horrifying moment she had to dash to the hospital when her 6 year old daughter Polly was struggling for breath last week.
Kym's former partner and Polly's father Jamie Lomass is currently in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, fighting for this year's crown.
Detailing the terrifying experience in her OK! weekly column, Kym wrote:
"There was a bit of a drama in our household last week.
Polly started to develop a cough and a cold, but on Wednesday night at 11.30pm she just started gasping for breath.
I had to rush her over to Salford Royal Hospital. It turned out she'd got croup. It's something that children up to the age of three can get but Polly is six.
It was horrible and her cough sounded like she was sea lion. I didn't get to bed until 5am and even then I couldn't sleep.
The hospital were brilliant and the staff put Polly at ease because she was terrified. It was really horrible to see."
