Love Island's Jazmine Nichol 'lucky to be alive' after terrifying health scare

Love Island star Jazmine Nichol has said she is "incredibly lucky to still be alive" after being diagnosed with a life-threatening disease and undergoing emergency surgery. The 21-year-old, who entered the villa as a part of this year's Casa Amor, was rushed to hospital after she started vomiting uncontrollably and turned grey.

Once there, doctors diagnosed her with sepsis - a potentially deadly reaction that occurs when your immune system overreacts to an infection and begins to destroy your body's own tissues and organs. The nightclub manager said she is now facing a "long recovery" after being taken for an emergency operation, Birmingham Live reports.

Posting to her Instagram story, Jazmine said: "I'd like to firstly thank everyone for their concern over my health this past week and let everyone know what's happened. I became unwell in the early hours of Tuesday morning and was taken into hospital later that day.

"Whilst waiting to be seen my condition deteriorated rapidly to what I now know is Sepsis. Had it not been for the quick thinking and action of a staff member who noticed how unwell I had become things could have been very different.

"Within minutes I had turned a blue/grey colour and was vomiting uncontrollably. My blood pressure was 70/30. It was at this point that the doctors informed my family that I was seriously unwell.

"I was fortunate to have the most amazing care and was quickly hooked up to IVs continaing antibiotics and fluids. Blood results showed that I had developed Sepsis - so rapidly it happened in a matter of minutes.

"Sepsis is a rare but serious complication of an infection. Without treatment sepsis causes multiple organ failures and death. We believe this happened because I had ignored an

READ MORE: Drunk monk in car who told cops 'whisky cures Covid-19' gets kicked out of monkhood The study looked at symptoms reported by more than 2 million people 12 weeks after their initial infection.Dr Shamil Haroon, of the University of Birmingham, said: “This research validates what patients have been telling clinicians and policy makers throughout the pandemic.“The symptoms of long Covid are extremely broad and cannot be fully accounted for by other factors such as lifestyle or chronic health conditions."“The symptoms we identified should help clinicians and clinical guideline developers to improve the assessment of patients with long-term effects from Covid-19, and to subsequently consider how this symptom burden can be best managed,” added Dr Haroon.Patterns of symptoms were grouped into respiratory symptoms and mental health and cognitive problems – and then also a broader range of problems.Most common were loss of sense of smell, shortness of breath, chest pain and fever.Others included amnesia, bowel incontinence, erectile dysfunction, hallucinations and limb swelling.

Phil Collins' major health issues as he quits Genesis gigs - booze to back problems
Phil Collins has played his final gig.Performing at the O2 in London, 71-year-old Collins said his goodbye to fans, making jokes about now having to find a proper job.In their first tour since 2007 Collins - joined by Mike Rutherford on the guitar and bass and Tony Banks on the keyboard - enjoyed the band's final outing years on from the glory they enjoyed in the 1980s and 1990s.Touring the likes of Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Newcastle, they've had to postpone three London shows because of issues caused by Covid-19.Collins had to perform while sitting down, having appeared a little frail during his time on the tour.He's been battling health conditions for a decade, which has understandably taken its toll, leaving him reliant on a walking stick or wheelchair.Collins has had to battle more than one problem over the last 13 years - in 2009 he suffered damaged vertebrae.He is understood to have picked up the nasty injury while he was playing, leaving nerve damage in his hands.After surgery he lost his ability to grip his drumsticks, meaning the only way he could play was if they were taped to his hands.Writing on the Genesis website at the time of the injury he said: "Somehow, during the last Genesis tour, I dislocated some vertebrae in my upper neck and that affected my hands."After a successful operation on my neck, my hands still can’t function normally.“Maybe in a year or so it will change, but for now it is impossible for me to play drums or piano."After divorcing his third wife and having retired, Collins admitted he had drinking problems in his 2016 autobiography.He said at the time that he had been sober for three years.In 2017 he announced that he was a type 2 diabetic and would be receiving

'Stop blaming Covid for everything' Gino D'Acampo fumes at 'excuse' of failing businesses
ITV.The TV chef has spoken out in a new interview about many "blaming" Covid for their failures, as his businesses go from success to success.Gino has insisted for many to "stop blaming Covid for everything" as he looks to a bright future in his business ventures.Speaking to The Mirror at his restaurant in Newcastle, he said: "It's becoming such a lousy and annoying excuse to say because of Covid I couldn’t do my job properly, or because of Covid we couldn’t do this and couldn't do that."He sympathises, however, admitting that he knows the restaurant industry has had to go through many changes but he has remained positive and adapted to the situation.He continued: "Throughout the pandemic at some points we had the chance to have guests sitting outside and the councils around us were extremely generous to give us the space to put tables."And we then realised, 'Wow, we should have done this from day one'."So, [let's stay] positive and let’s keep smiling, keep positive."Gino, listening to what his Covid customers need, now has a new terrace overlooking the river Tyne at his Newcastle restaurant.As well as this, the TV chef plans to open more restaurants across the country this year.These include restaurants in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.This comes after Gino had to speak out last month following reports his My Pasta Bar chain had gone into liquidation.Sharing a video from his kitchen at home, the Italian chef began: "When I got back I saw a lot of c**p about my restaurant."Apparently, my restaurant had gone into liquidation."Now, I don’t usually do stuff like this, but I thought, let me set the record straight here."About 10 years ago, I opened a business called Pasta Bar, which serves Italian food very fast
