Lucy Mecklenburgh has detailed the terrifying moment she had to rush her baby girl to hospital after she developed a high temperature.The former TOWIE star, 30, who recently teased having more children with Ryan Thomas, shared how her daughter wasn't "coping well" after catching a cough from her brother Roman, two, and was "choking on milk and saliva".Taking to her Instagram stories, Lucy posted a photo of her baby girl with a tube attached to her face as she lay sleeping.

Over this, she told her 1.7million followers: "Lots of messages asking where I've been for 5 days. "Unfortunately Lilah got really poorly with Bronchiolitis so we have had a few days in hospital She is home now and doing well I'm obviously not in any position to give medical advice but this is our experience for parents that may want to know what happened & what to look out for." Lucy then explained that Roman first came down with a "really bad cough", which she presumed he picked up from preschool. "Lilah caught it and 3 days in she wasn't coping with it very well, tummy sucking in, cough getting worse, high temperature, coughing & choking on milk and her saliva," she went on to explain, sharing the symptoms her little girl experienced.

Lilah was then given oxygen and "was tube fed for a couple of days," before getting a nose swab. After testing positive for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), Lucy shared that this causes Bronchiolitis.

According to the NHS, bronchiolitis is a common chest infection that affects babies and children under the age of two. Although treatable at home, it can be serious as symptoms include sneezing, a runny or blocked nose, a cough and a slightly high temperature of 38C.
