Gemma Collins has been rushed to hospital.
The 35-year-old star is currently in Tenerife filming the new series of 'The Only Way is Essex' and has sparked concern for her wellbeing after sharing a picture of her hand tied up to a drip in a hospital bed, but not explaining why she was taken in.
Alongside the photo posted on her Twitter on Tuesday (31.01.17), she wrote: "Thankyou for all your lovely messages sadly I'm in hospital in Tenerife but hope to be on the mend soon what a way to spend your birthday (sic)"
The popular ITVBe show hasn't been on screens since December's festive special but bosses are adamant the first installment of 2017 is one not to miss as they've jetted a big group of the cast mates out to the sun-soaked Spanish island.
Speaking previously to BANG Showbiz, Dan Edgar said: "We start filming on Sunday. We're going to Tenerife on Sunday. There's quite a lot of us to be fair."
It's not yet known who will be joining Dan and Gemma - who quit the show in 2015 but keeps making sporadic cameo appearances - in Tenerife, but they had planned on celebrating Gemma's 36th birthday on Thursday (02.02.17).
Dan explained: "I think we're all going out there for Gemma's birthday so there will be a big group of us out there. Although she's quit, she'll always be about!"
Megan McKenna and her boyfriend Pete Wicks were also looking forward to getting some winter sun following their explosive row last summer in Marbella.
She explained ahead of flying in at the weekend: "I am flying to Tenerife on Sunday. I've just come back from Dubai and St Lucia. There's only a few of us going, not everyone goes. All I know at the moment is that me and Pete are going and a I think some of the couples are going. Hopefully there won't be any drama this time. I think people can relate to us. We're normal, we do normal things. When we react to things, it's real reactions. We row and we fight. We don't look back, we look forward. For a viewer, I must have been really good TV."
However, the pair had a huge argument at the National Television Awards last month, so their relationship status is currently unknown.
