Former Love Island star Chris Hughes has been taken into accident and emergency in hospital ahead of his ITV hosting stint at Cheltenham Festival.

The 27 year old reality star, who is dating Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson, shared a Boomerang video of himself sitting in a hospital waiting room on his Instagram story.

He then turns the camera up to a television placed in front of the rows of chairs in the emergency waiting room, which is playing a football match.

Sharing his frustration over his hospital visit, Chris, who recently said people want to "destroy" him, wrote on top of the footage “Just what wee need on the eve of Cheltenham,” followed by a fed up emoji. [sic]

Chris also added a moving GIF of an ambulance below the writing.


The reality star then shared a video of his friend looking fed up while waiting with him in hospital.

In the clip, the pal checks his watch and then scratches his head wearily as Chris asks in the background: “Was that the time?”

Since posting the clips on his Instagram, it was later confirmed that Chris had visited A&E after being in pain due to suspected kidney stones.

Chris' rep told The Sun Online: “Chris has been in some pain with suspected kidney stone – it has been alleviated overnight after a trip to hospital and some medicine and he’s keeping an eye on it, but is all set to present with ITV Racing this week.”

The reality star had clearly been looking forward to his appearance at Cheltenham, as, two weeks beforehand, he shared a photo of him with his favourite horse Annie Mc on his Instagram.

Writing in the caption, Chris counted down the days until the horse racing festival: “Not long now till we can showcase on the world stage what you’re made of Annie. Less than 3 weeks,” followed by a block emoji and arm flexing emoji. [sic]

Chris has had health problems in the past, as he was diagnosed with varicoceles – a testicular vain condition – when he was 14 years old.

The Love Island veteran had keyhole surgery to drain the excess fluid, and chose to freeze his sperm after the procedure.

In an upcoming BBC documentary, called Me, My Brother and Our Balls, Chris is set to explain his health issues alongside his brother Ben who suffered from testicular cancer, who has since been told he is cancer-free.

Speaking in the doc, Chris reveals he “learnt things about male fertility“ that “surprised“ him.

He adds: “Fertility is often a subject that guys don’t consider until it might be too late, so I’m hoping this documentary will raise awareness and help men who might be struggling with these issues.”
