Gemma Collins has updated fans to let them know she is on the mend after coming down with a mystery illness

Gemma Collins has been treated by a private nurse after falling "very poorly".

The 40-year-old TV star has reassured fans that she is "on the mend" after coming down with a mystery illness.

Gemma, who was on a drip, took to Instagram to post a picture of a tube in her arm and showed a clip of the medical professional standing by her bed.

She captioned the picture on her Story: "Sorry been quiet guys, I have been very poorly but I am feeling like I am back on the mend."

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star thanked the nurse and her doctor for the private care she has received.

She wrote: "Thank you to my lovely private nurse Nena for helping me, and my lovely @sportiedoc."

The 'Diva' star was joined by her father Alan – who recently battled COVID-19 – who was on hand to make her a cup of tea.

She added: "Slowly slowly getting there.

"Thank you to everyone who has bared with me."

Gemma recently revealed she was feeling "so unwell" and suggested she had a virus.

She explained: "Been so unwell last few days, I can't tell you it's not COVID, but deffo some sort of virus.

"Literally knocked me for six and I feel so stressed as I got so much to do but I just have to allow it.

"The most important person is me and my health so I've just got to allow it."

The health update came after she revealed she had to adapt her vigorous exercise regime after struggling with polycystic ovary syndrome.

She wrote: "Happy Sunday guys recap on the week. My PCOS hasn’t been great this week but I found the strength to keep going.

"I did easier work outs and knew to listen to my body. I went to bed earlier got up a little later and didn’t over do it. I’m always juggling a lot of plates but I just took it slower.

"This post is for anyone who needs to dig a little deeper you can do it HAPPY SUNDAY and I’m literally counting down the hours for Tom!!! X FREEDOM. (sic)"
