Former soap star Hayley Tamaddon has revealed she has had to take her baby son Jasper, 20 months, to hospital after he came down with a fever.
The health scare is Jasper’s second in less than a month. Just three weeks ago he was admitted to hospital with Hayley saying at the time he was ‘really poorly’.

‘I might have to rest my head on the towel machine behind me and close my eyes for ten minutes!’
She later updated fans again and said that Jasper had a cannula in his arm ready to receive antibiotics.
Hayley added: ‘Oh my gosh, a baby having b****y tests. I cried, he screamed.

‘Sending lots of love to all the parents out there who have got poorly babies. I know he’s not that bad and there’s a lot of babies out there suffering a hell of a lot worse.’
Earlier on Friday, before rushing to hospital, Hayley uploaded a picture of Jasper lying on their sofa at home.
Penning a lengthy caption, she wrote: ‘It’s 2 am.. we’re in the living room. he’s poorly. Again. Poor thing. In the past two months he’s had So many infections, ears, eyes, throat .. and now he has tonsillitis.
‘The worst thing is the fever .. it’s scary.. it goes so high and makes him so ill. But.. he’s a trouper. Deals with it so well! Better than I would I reckon!
‘He’s poorly again’: Hayley took to Instagram earlier on Friday to explain that Jasper had fallen ill again
‘Being a parent is really hard work.. but when they get poorly, and you’re surviving on 3 hours a night, setting an alarm to give them their medicine on time, not sleeping even when they are, just so you can watch them and check they’re breathing ok, it’s even harder.
‘This love is insane. He completes me in every single way. Even when he’s driving me potty and constantly opening the cupboard under the sink or emptying all my clothes from every single draw in the bedroom.’
Last month, Hayley had to take Jasper to hospital- days after revealing she was taking a social media break as her little lad ‘was really poorly’.
Taking to Instagram, Hayley shared a photo of Jasper sleeping, telling fans: ‘Ended up in hospital again today with a very poorly boy. He got better only to get worse again.’

As she shared the news, Hayley also thanked NHS staff, adding: ‘Thank you to the amazing staff at Salford Royal NHS. We are so lucky to have the NHS.’

Hayley’s full message read: ‘Hi! Hope everyone’s ok. I’ve taken a break from social media for a while for a few personal reasons.. one of those being that jasper was really poorly.
‘He’s on the mend now thank god but for 2 weeks he’s not been well at all, bless him, and We ended up in hospital one night. He’s on antibiotics now and is much better.
‘During that time he wouldn’t eat anything, and didn’t want the boob.. since he’s got better he just wants to bite it! And my poor nips just can’t take it anymore. I swear he’s so close to ripping one off!
‘So.. I feel like it’s time for the end of our breastfeeding journey. Considering I was only going to do if for the first 6 weeks.
‘I’m so proud of myself for managing 18 months. It’s been a beautiful journey, and I’m really sad, but it’s time to smother my nips in coconut butter and let them heal.
