Former Love Island star Zara McDermott was admitted to hospital with “excruciating pain” in her abdomen.
The 25-year-old, who is dating Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson, revealed she was treated for a suspected burst cyst on an ovary on Friday night.
Sharing the news on Instagram, McDermott said she returned to the hospital on Saturday morning for further scans to check her ovary had not become twisted.
Sharing a photo of herself in a hospital bed, she wrote: “Wow last night was so eventful! Sam had to rush me to A&E because I had excruciating pain in my abdomen…
“Had a feeling it was a burst cyst on my ovary because I’ve had one before but on the other side and felt extremely similar.”
The TV star thanked the A&E team who treated her and said they had completed all her tests and scans within two hours.
She also thanked her followers for their messages of support in a second post, saying: “They found blood in my abdomen which indicates it’s a burst cyst for sure and nothing else.”
She added that her ovary “looks fine” and isn’t twisted before praising the NHS staff as “bloody brilliant”.
Since appearing on the 2018 series of Love Island, McDermott has made several documentaries about revenge porn, sexual assault and eating disorders for the BBC.
