Lucy, who shares Roman with her fiancé Coronation Street favourite Ryan Thomas, 37, revealed she had to call an ambulance for the couple's toddler recently.

In a post shared to her Instagram on Thursday, the reality star described what she called her "worst nightmare".

Alongside a picture of Roman's arm as he lay in hospital, she wrote: "Just over a week ago I found Roman blue in his cot – probably every parent's worse nightmare.

"Without going into too much detail, it ended up with Roman being transferred to St Mary's London intensive care and being put on a ventilator.

"Thankfully, we are now all home and Roman is back to his cheeky self," she assured her social media followers.

Lucy continued: "Although mentally we as a family may never fully recover, we feel extremely blessed to have our special boy home in our arms and it has truly opened our eyes to all the hardworking superheroes working in our hospitals who dedicate their lives to helping others and how extremely lucky we are to have these incredible medical serviced free for us all in the UK.

"Thank you NHS, and all the charities that support the NHS."

Lucy ensured to thank everyone involved and also revealed her plans to give back.

"I would love to do something in return and to hopefully help other sick children & their families.

"I'd like to help with the new Children's garden area at Basildon hospital as it's unusable at the moment and I know it would bring so much joy to children on the wards."
