Gaz Beadle’s wife, Emma McVey, has confirmed she is back home with her family after a recent health scare. The mum-of-two and wife of the Geordie Shore star took to her Instagram story to post a sweet snap with her daughter. She wrote: “The biggest cuddles this morning." She later added: “Home last night to surprise my babies this morning".

Emma was rushed to hospital after returning from a family holiday last week. The model shared a snap from a hospital bed with her 896,000 Instagram followers on Thursday (9 May). The 30-year-old admitted she was relieved to have been back in the UK while falling ill.

Emma, Gaz, and their two children, Primrose, three, and Chester, five, flew out to the Greek Island of Corfu before the health scare and enjoyed a sunkissed holiday in a luxury resort. Emma has shared a number of photos from the trip with her fans. She captioned the post: “This time last week. A beautiful day”.

Fans took to the comment section to offer their well-wishes. One person said: “How are you feeling Emma? Hope you are ok.” Another wrote: “What a lovely picture of you and your family. Hope you’re feeling better.” A third wrote: “Hope you get well soon, Emma,” while a fourth said: “I hope you are on the mend now!”

The model and influencer has suffered from a heart defect since birth and had to undergo heart surgery to fix her valve and three holes in her heart in January. Although the surgery went to plan, one of Emma’s lungs collapsed after the surgery. 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”.

Last year, Emma revealed she was suffering from symptoms of ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Speaking about her health conditions, she told The Sun: “The past year has been a whirlwind. I’m still trying to get my head around this latest health issue. Two weeks ago, I had another flare-up — I lost a lot of blood and feel really tired — so I’ve recently had my medication doubled and steroids reintroduced. I did lose a lot of confidence. One health issue after another gets you down, and I was so thin, my face looked gaunt, which made me feel insecure.”
