Ulrika Jonsson reveals daughter Bo, 20, was rushed to hospital overnight

Ulrika Jonsson’s daughter Bo – who has a congenital heart defect – was rushed to hospital this week.  

Former Gladiators presenter Ulrika, 53, is now awaiting the latest test results for her ill daughter after she was admitted to hospital overnight, with Ulrika given hourly reports on her progress. 

Bo has been in and out of hospital over the years as a result of her condition – she was born with double inlet left ventricle defect, a congenital defect that affects the valves and chambers of the heart.

As a baby, she had to undergo life-saving surgery on her heart – but Ulrika did not reveal what had caused Bo to be hospitalised.

Ulrika told fans about her sleepless night on Tuesday as she awaited word from the doctors.

She said: ‘When your plan for an early good night’s sleep goes Pete Tong. Hourly, Daughterly updates from hospital. 

‘Finally discharged will update later. Thank you for your kind messages.’

She later told fans Bo who she refers to as ‘oldest female ungrateful’ was no longer in hospital and that ‘nothing has been solved yet.’ 

She also shared a picture of Boo saying: ‘Miss you stoopid.’ 

Mailonline has contacted a spokesman for Ulrika Jonsson for comment. 

Last month Ulrika hailed Bo as a ‘warrior’ as she went to get a health check up.

The TV presenter shared a series of snaps to her Instagram Stories of Bo lying down at the doctor’s office as she received a liver scan. 

The former Celebrity Big Brother star posted a photo of the pair sat together in the waiting room as she called Bo her ‘CHD Warrior’.   

In another, Bo could be seen in the doctor’s office sporting a face mask with Ulrika captioning the snap: ‘Gonna be a loooong day’.

Ulrika and Bo had to sit apart for some of the day as the star snapped her daughter sporting a white bandage in the waiting room.  

In another photo, Bo rested her head against her mother’s shoulder.

The former Gladiators star captioned the post: ‘Always her shoulder (and everything else) #ungratefuls’.   

It comes after Ulrika shared her delight and relief after her eldest daughter received a Covid vaccine in February.

Ulrika penned: ‘For all those with full hearts, functioning hearts, borrowed hearts, broken hearts and biologically faulty hearts, this has made my heart sing.

‘Ungrateful [the playful name she gives her children] with congenital heart defect has been vaccinated. And breathe…..’ 

Ulrika has previously spoken about Bo’s health condition and was delighted when they were reunited in December, weeks after Bo was admitted to A&E with medical issues.   

Sharing a family picture, a smiling Ulrika posed a picture with Bo, who was casually flipping the bird in her pyjamas in the background.

Ulrika wrote: ‘She’s back home, full of the joys of spring.’

The doting mother-of-four revealed her heartache in November when Bo was hospitalised and she was unable to visit her amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The former weather presenter wrote at the time: ‘The face of no sleep.  

‘Fireworks, oldest Ungrateful [the playful name she gives her children] ends up in A&E miles away and I can’t go to her. Dog vomits, twice. #happythursday.’

Ulrika is also mother to Cameron, 25, Martha, 14 and Malcolm, 11.

While Ulrika didn’t specify what was wrong with her daughter at the time, in September Ulrika admitted Bo was ‘terrified’ before Britain went into lockdown and was taking risks by going to university.

The TV star’s daughter has a compromised immune system and an underlying cardiac condition and began her second year of university amid the pandemic.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Ulrika said: ‘At the beginning of Lockdown, Bo was terrified and went into lockdown a week before the nation went into lockdown.

‘As time went by I became increasingly concerned about her mental health because she was basically locked up in her room. 

‘She had contact with her friends on FaceTime but that social thing they thrive on became a concern for me.’

She said: ‘After three months, she decided when she was allowed, to bubble with another family and her present situation is that the college is doing a mix of lectures and virtual.

‘She also does a lot of placements and those are constantly under review. I think Bo’s approach now is, strangely, a lot more relaxed than she was initially. She feels like she’s had a taste of normal life and is having to take some risks.’
