Katie Piper has shared the terrifying news that she was rushed to hospital for an emergency procedure after choking on some food on Monday 4 October.

The 37 year old took to her Instagram feed to inform her one million followers about the ordeal after sharing a snap of herself in a hospital gown.

In the caption, she wrote: "SO, last night I choked on some food which led to spasms in my oesophagus, which meant it closed up, meaning I couldn’t swallow even my own saliva and ended up in A&E for an emergency procedure on my oesophagus (not the way to start a week).

"I’ve got a long history of treatment with my oesophagus, I’ve got three strictures of tight scar tissue from what happened previously and this is something I’ve been aware of but hasn’t happened in years."

Expressing her gratitude to the NHS, she added: "But, out of surgery and it went very well and I just ate ice cream which felt heavenly!

"Huge thank you to the NHS doctors and nurses that did she an incredible job and were so attentive [yellow heart emoji] now for a restful day."

Celebrity friends were quick to share their support as Strictly star Gorka Marquez wrote: "Sending love partner," alongside a crying emoji and a red heart emoji.

Love Island star Dr Alex George said: "Sending love," with two red heart emojis as Chloe Sims chimed: "Sending you love Katie," with three red heart emoji.

Meanwhile Andrea McLean added: "How frightening Katie. I’m glad you’re ok," with a red heart emoji.
