Coronation Street star Chris Quinten's fiancée Robyn Delabarre has been rushed to hospital – just hours after the former soap star, who played Gail Platt's husband Brian Tilsley, proposed during an idyllic break to the Greek island of Mykonos. The couple were celebrating Robyn's 21st birthday and their recent engagement before she was hit with severe sunstroke and taken to hospital.

Revealing the abrupt end to her happy day over the weekend, Robyn revealed on Facebook that she wound up with a £500 bill after being nursed back to health. "Nice relaxing day with our hot tub and view after a horrible trip to a&e last night and me ended up on a drip that cost £500," she wrote, adding: "Never a dull moment lucky he held my hand and cuddled up in the hospital bed with me always looking after me." Responding to a concerned friend, Robyn revealed that she is now back to full health, confirming she was suffering with "really bad sun stoke".
