“He is thankfully getting better now.”

Mum Anna continued: “He had a horrible rash that appeared on his legs and then spread all over his body really quickly.

Speaking to OK! ahead of the op in 2019, Anna said: “I’ve got to have a complete hysterectomy early next year.

“My endometriosis, which I’ve suffered with all my adult life, returned severely after I had Sid. It’s so bad I also have to have part of my intestine removed, as it has attacked my bowel too. It causes me a lot of pain. It’s a big operation and I’ll be in hospital for about ten days with three months recovery.”
