The medical expert later thanked her followers for their kind words, adding: "Thanks so much for all of your kind well wishes… been an awful 24 hours but this little lad definitely turned a corner and much better today."

Earlier this year, Zoe told HELLO! how she planned to take a year off from her work in the NHS, however, she returned to her role as This Morning's resident GP much sooner.

"This Morning is such a family. Lisbon is a well-behaved baby so far, so I'd love to bring him in and introduce him to the team," she told HELLO! in a previous interview.

Sharing her expert advice on how to navigate feelings of guilt when returning to work after maternity leave, Dr Zoe added: "What I've discovered, is that mum guilt is real and you feel it no matter what you do as a working mum. My first tip would be acceptance."

She continued: "We can fall into the pit of suffering in silence, but talking with other people going through the exact same thing can really make you feel less alone and remind you that this is completely normal."
