Bianca Gascoigne was rushed to hospital in Dubai after suffering a dangerous throat infection.
The 31-year-old reality beauty was struck with quinsy – a serious complication of tonsillitis in which pus filled abscess form on the tonsils and wall of the throat.
Quinsy symptoms include a severe sore throat, pain when swallowing, and swelling and hospital treatment is usually required.
Being struck down by the illness has really ruined Bianca’s trip as she revealed on social media that she had escaped to the desert haven to surprise her brother, Mason.
“Arrived in Dubai to surprise my brother Mase,” she wrote on Instagram Stories as sun soaked scenes streamed on her video.
“Then a day later…in end up here,” she continued, cutting to a scene of a hospital.
Sharing a photo of herself bed bound, the star revealed her suffering.
“I have quinsy again can’t eat or drink,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself in bed and attached to a drip.
“Painkillers aren’t helping the pain,” she continued, adding: “and I have the neck the size of a hippo.”
It’s not the first time Bianca has been struck down with quinsy – she suffered from the same condition back in 2016 and was left fearing for her life.
