Harry Judd experienced every parent's worst nightmare last year when his wife Izzy called him at work to say that their baby son Kit had been taken to hospital at just eight weeks old. While chatting to HELLO! at the NHS Heroes Awards on Monday night about his own experiences with the National Health Service, Harry said: "They looked after my son when he was eight weeks old, he had bronchitis which can be very serious for babies when they are little. The NHS took him straight in and the ambulance took him straight to hospital, he was there over night for a couple of days and they sorted him out."

The musician continued: "We were just incredibly grateful, on reflection a few days later when we calmed down as we realised he was okay, we thought 'wow that was incredible, the service that they gave.'" Expanding further on the incident, Harry said: "At the time, I was actually doing Christmasauraus stuff [with Tom Fletcher], and my wife called me saying 'you need to get home, now.'" Tom added: "He just left, he got up from an interview and just walked out." "She said there was an ambulance coming and I was just like 'oh my God' and I got a taxi to go home but I couldn’t get through to Izzy, she wouldn’t answer her phone. So all I heard was 'there is an ambulance coming, come home now,'" Harry said.

At the time, Izzy spoke out about Kit's hospital admission in an emotional Instagram post, where she praised the NHS for caring for her little boy, which was accompanied by a picture of her son in his hospital cot. The mum-of-two wrote about how it had been a "seriously tough week", adding: "We have been looked after by the most amazing paramedics, doctors and beautifully caring nurses. A very frightening experience was eased by a very kind and reassuring nurse who held my hand when my little boy was very distressed."
