PREGNANT Marnie Simpson has revealed that she was rushed to the doctors after falling ill on holiday.
The Geordie Shore star, 31, was enjoying some time away in Wales with fiance Casey Johnson and their son Rox, three, when her bladder condition flared up again.
Marnie, who is currently expecting her second child, was diagnosed with a chronic UTI in 2016.
After welcoming Rox into the world in 2019, her symptoms began to get a lot worse.
Unfortunately her wholesome family weekend away was short lived when she started to feel unwell again.
Marnie recently wrote in her OK! column: "Over the weekend, Rox, Casey and I went to a lovely lodge in Wales for a relaxing time away.

"But unfortunately, my bladder took a bad turn as I started to feel really poorly just a few hours after arriving.
"I started to feel really unwell and we were in the mountains, so there were no doctors or hospitals for hours, where I could go and see a specialist.
"So we had to cut the trip short and go back home.
"I dropped off a sample with my specialist and started a course of antibiotics.

"So, I’m currently resting and doing what I can to get better. It took a good three to four days for me to feel any kind of progress, which is so frustrating."
The reality favourite added: "I was in so much pain and the baby feels proper big. I can’t even walk properly, I’m waddling. And the amount of pressure that is on my bladder makes it so uncomfortable.
"I think I find it more painful than the average person because I have high sensitivity in my bladder."
Back in November Marnie revealed the exciting news that she is pregnant with a "surprise" second baby with Casey.
Speaking about the moment they found out that she is pregnant, Marnie shared: "I was filming a TV show in September and we planned on trying after that. But during filming I had really weird symptoms.
"I constantly felt sick, my gums were bleeding and I felt dizzy, but I just put it down to it being an activity-based show and the fact it was 17-hour days.
"When I was away filming I was messaging Casey and I told him I felt really sick and my boobs were really hurting. I said it could be because I was running around and my muscles hadn’t been used in that way before, but Casey said he thought I was pregnant."
She went on: "While we were doing that show I also did a bungee jump! Everyone had to do a medical beforehand and when they took my blood pressure it was really low. My blood pressure has never been low so that was a red flag.
"I told Casey and he said, 'You’re definitely pregnant!' So as soon as I got back that night I did a pregnancy test and it came up with 'Pregnant' straight away. We just laughed!"
Marnie and Casey met on the show Single AF in 2017.
Casey hit the spotlight in 2014 after auditioning for The X Factor. The singer joined the band Union J in May 2016, but left just under a year later.
