Kym Marsh's daughter rushed to hospital with croup

Share article:

Kym Marsh's daughter was rushed to hospital last week.

The "Coronation Street" actress was given the fright of her life last month when her six-year-old daughter Polly - whose father Jamie Lomas is currently in Australia taking part in "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" - was gasping for air after contracting a cold.

Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she said: "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."

The youngster was given a course of steroids and appears to be on the mend but can't wait to be reunited with her dad when he comes back from his jungle gig Down Under.
