Vanessa Feltz shares health update on her daughter after scary hospital dash

Vanessa Feltz has given her fans an update on her daughter days after revealing she had been rushed to hospital in a "desperately ill" state.

Allegra, 36, is also mum to her own two young children, and Vanessa was left incredibly emotional at the prospect of her daughter's health issues.

The This Morning star, 60, told her followers that her daughter had unfortunately become really sick with the flu last week, and her body struggled to cope with the illness.

Allegra was placed on a hospital drip after constant vomiting, and thankfully Vanessa explained she has started to improve.

Appearing on the ITV daytime show on Monday morning with Tom Swarbrick, the reality star told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby and viewers at home just how important it was to get their flu jabs.

“She’s 36. She’s slim, she’s fit, she’s got two young children," Vanessa explained her shock at how poorly her grown-up daughter had become from the seasonal virus.

“She started feeling incredibly ill – vomiting, vomiting, vomiting. We thought it was norovirus and the kind of thing you just deal with at home.

“She got sicker and sicker. In the end she was admitted as an emergency and is still in hospital. She’s still on a drip."

The TV star was so grateful to share that Allegra has now "turned a corner" and even encouraged her mum to help warn the UK the dangers of not having their flu jabs this winter.

While Allegra herself had had the vaccine, the doctor gravely told Vanessa if her daughter had contracted the disease without it, her life could be in jeopardy.

“The consultant said, ‘Imagine if she hadn’t got it’. In other words, the vaccine may not protect you from getting the flu, but it will save your life," the star continued.

“Please, if you’re eligible for it go and get it and if you’re not, consider paying for it.

What's more, Vanessa told Phil and Holly that influenza is worse than Covid when it's a particularly intense strength of the virus.

"The doctor said you feel like you’re going to die and in some cases you do. She [Vanessa's daughter] has been deadly ill. Yesterday when I went to visit her in hospital, she could not open her eyes and she could not talk, she was so ill," the star added.

A few days after rushing her daughter into hospital, Vanessa told her Instagram followers Sunday night that she was by her side.

"Speaking from my daughter’s hospital bed. She has been on a drip since Thursday night. And it turns out she's got pure and simply flu. It's influenza. It's the flu bug that all the doctors warned us was coming this winter," the former I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! favourite explained.

"She's got a particularly virulent horrible, horrible case of it. And guess what?

"She had been vaccinated and all the doctors have said if she hadn't been she would have been even worse and believe me, it isn't worth thinking about. She wouldn't want anyone to go through what she's going through. And neither would I," Vanessa urged.
