The make-up free actress rested in bed surrounded by medical wires and monitoring equipment. She sported a heart patterned pyjama top and closed her eyes. 

She wrote to her fans: ‘After the worst pain I’ve ever been in, I’m getting there now, love to you all,’ alongside a prayer emoji.

Stephanie gave another update on her condition on Saturday. The former Hollyoaks star, who is asthmatic and has not been vaccinated, was admitted after she ‘woke up and couldn’t move’.

Speaking on her Instagram Story from her hospital bed with an audibly croaky voice, she said her chest felt ‘so bad’ and that her ‘oxygen levels aren’t great’.

Looking visibly unwell, she said: ‘Hey everyone thanks for your messages, I’ve been feeling too s**t to reply.

‘I’ve not been well at all, I’ve just had some morphine and that’s really helped with the pain. I don’t know what’s been going on but I’ve been getting severe pains in my oesophagus and in my chest and, it’s not indigestion because I’ve not ate anything.

‘Even when I have a sip of water the pain is unreal, I don’t know what’s going on. I’m feeling very spaced out on the morphine so I’m going to go back to sleep. It’s been horrific.

‘The pain in my skin was the worst, I couldn’t touch my skin and my chest is so bad, my oxygen levels aren’t great. I’ll get seen to in a bit when the doctors come round. 

‘People are all getting different side effects from what’s going on – I’m guessing the pain in my chest is all linked as I’ve only just had this, when a sip of water goes down the pain is unreal. I’ve had some fluids as I’m dehydrated – I’ll keep you all posted.’

A spokesperson for Stephanie told MailOnline on Thursday: ‘She has been in isolation and is awaiting a chest X-ray. 

‘She’s at risk because of her underlying asthma. Stephanie has not been vaccinated yet because of her allergies and anaphylaxis.’  

Late on Thursday night, while in her hospital bed and wearing an oxygen mask, the soap star explained in a video that the onset of her symptoms ‘happened so quick.’

Despite being in her twenties, the actress falls into a higher risk category for Covid because of her asthma. 

Patients with severe asthma were at the top of the priority list when the vaccines began to be rolled out late last year and mild asthmatics were offered the jab during the second phase of the rollout.

But some people with severe food allergies or a history of anaphylaxis were advised to consult with their doctor before getting the jabs. 

Speaking to her camera phone, Stephanie explained: ‘So last night I had a bit of a headache before bed, and my sinuses.

‘I woke up so ill. I had to call an ambulance basically, and I’ve tested positive for Covid-19. I feel like I’ve been ran over.

‘The worst part is my skin. I can’t touch my skin, it’s killing me. I’m just in so much pain.

‘Oh my god, it’s horrible. And it just, it happened so quick. I basically woke up and couldn’t move,’ revealed the soap star. 

‘I’ve never had sore skin before, so I thought, “Well, this isn’t like a chest infection”. Normally, I suffer with my chest. I feel rotten,’ added the mother-of-one.

After having her breathing device removed, Stephanie returned and told fans: ‘I’m going back to sleep now. Trying to get an hours’ sleep.

‘I feel like I’ve been ran over. My skin, I can’t touch my skin.’

Following a little rest, Stephanie explained to her followers: ‘They’ve started me on some more fluids and some painkillers and intravenous for the pain… Honestly, my god. I feel like I’ve been ran over.

‘Did anyone else [with Covid-19] have sore skin? I feel like I can’t touch my skin, and my back. My chest feels a bit better after having some nebulisers, but my god!’
