She wrote last week: “Last [night] my dad called 111. He desperately needed a doctor. Eight hours later they called back. That’s how busy they are.
“Sadly was very late and at midnight was admitted to hospital because he needed to be checked. He’s 81. Our NHS are so up against it. It’s so worrying. Stay home.”
Soon after, she posted an update to inform fans that he was home and recovering.
“He’s home now and recovering – but alone, I want to look after my dad and hug him & make him soup.”
“All so very hard after just losing mum. He needs to isolate – I miss him.”
