Gaz described the situation as “the hardest thing our family will ever go through”, explaining that the children were “emotional wrecks” as they missed their “mummy”.

The post was accompanied by an image of Gaz and Emma in hospital, with Emma in pink pyjamas with a smile on her face, despite the circumstances. Other images in the post included a quote which read “in sickness and in health”, and photos of the children making get well soon cards for their mother.

Gaz further explained that Emma is “smashing it”, and despite being ill is still constantly messaging her husband from hospital to check on the kids.
