Love Island star Jazmine Nichol was all smiles as she made her first public appearance following emergency surgery.

The 21 year old shocked fans last week when she revealed she'd been rushed to hospital for emergency surgery after contracting sepsis just weeks after leaving the villa.

The Casa Amor bombshell previously shared how she was "lucky to be alive" following her illness, which had left her left “vomiting uncontrollably”.

Making her first public appearance since her scary hospital trip, Jazmine looked to be on the mend as she was seen arriving at a photoshoot in Manchester alongside fellow Love Island alum Mollie Salmon.

Jazmine wore black cargo pants and trainers alongside a black crop top as she smiled while arriving at Boujee Bar in Manchester.

The brunette beauty wore her hair tied back and wore a few delicate pieces of gold jewellery, while having a small handbag perched on her shoulder.

Several days ago, Jazmine opened up to her followers about her illness, which she says left her "lucky to be alive".

Addressing the terrifying hospital dash on her Instagram Story, the star posted a summary of her experience against a solid black background and thanked her fans for their support.

She wrote: “I'd like to firstly thank everyone for their concern over my health this past week and let everyone know what's happened.

“I became unwell in the early hours of Tuesday morning and was taken into hospital later that day.

“Whilst waiting to be seen my condition deteriorated rapidly to what I now know is Sepsis.”

Jazmine, who rose to fame after appearing on this year's Love Island as a Casa Amor bombshell, added that things could’ve been “very different” had a member of staff not picked up on the seriousness of the situation.

“Had it not been for the quick thinking and action of a staff member who noticed how unwell I had become things could have been very different,” she continued.

“Within minutes I had turned a blue/grey colour and was vomiting uncontrollably.

“My blood pressure was 70/30. It was at this point that the doctors informed my family that I was seriously unwell.”

She added: “I was fortunate to have the most amazing care and was quickly hooked up to IVs containing antibiotics and fluids.

“Blood results showed that I had developed Sepsis – so rapidly it happened in a matter of minutes.

“Sepsis is a rare but serious complication of an infection. Without treatment sepsis causes multiple organ failures and death.

“We believe this happened because I had ignored an infection whilst away from home last week and as a result needed emergency surgery in the early hours of Wednesday morning once my condition had stabilised.”

Following her surgery, Jazmine admitted that she had a long road to recovery ahead of her but took the time to praise the NHS for looking after her during the scary time.

“I want to thank our amazing NHS for the quick action and excellent care,” she said.

“I still have a long recovery ahead and will be taking some much needed rest, but I am feeling incredibly lucky to still be alive right now.”
