Christine McGuinness worried fans on Thursday afternoon after posting a selfie from her hospital bed. The 30-year-old - who is married to Paddy McGuinness - uploaded the picture along with the caption: "Please hear me when I say I am very well so please don't worry I just had a little snooze, honestly it wasn’t long enough [emojis]. But whilst I’m lay here, I’ll take a selfie [emoji] and send a little reminder to stay strong. Live, laugh and love every day. Be kind always, you never know what people are dealing with behind their smile." The photo showed Christine wearing an oxygen mask with eyes closed, but giving a thumbs up. She then updated fans on Friday morning, thanking them for their support.

Although the mum-of-three told fans not to worry, they couldn't help but share their concerns and send their well-wishes. One wrote: "Hi Christine, hope you feel better soon, I don’t know if your in due to exhaustion, anxiety but sometimes we all run ourselves down, hope you feel healthy and have more energy soon... xx." Another added: "Hopefully you will be right as rain soon and back to your babies. Xx." The health scare might come as a shock to some, as Christine is known for being a fitness fanatic and sharing her extreme workout videos.
