Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas is currently in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle in Australia, but show bosses will not be telling him some serious news about his daughter.

Jamie, 42, shares six-year-old Polly with his ex-wife, Corrie actress Kym Marsh, who revealed that the little girl had to be rushed to hospital last week.

Kym, 41, wrote in her column for OK! Magazine that "terrified" Polly had been "gasping for breath" as she rushed the little girl to Salford Royal Hospital.

She wrote: "There was a bit of a drama in our household last week. Polly started to develop a cough and a cold, but on Wednesday night at 11.30pm she just started gasping for breath.

"I had to rush her over to Salford Royal Hospital. It turned out she’d got croup. It’s something that children up to the age of three can get but Polly is six."

Thankfully, Polly is now home and well, but Kym added that it was "really horrible to see."

However - shockingly, Jamie has not been made aware that his little girl was seriously ill.

We all know it's show policy not to have any contact with the outside world, but you would have thought he'd like to know that his daughter had been seriously ill in hospital.

The show insider told The Sun: "He hasn’t been told while he’s in the jungle. Because it happened while Jamie was in the jungle, it's not something he'd know about."

Kym recently uploaded an adorable video of her daughter cheering her dad on whilst watching him in the jungle, and was praised for encouraging her to say nice things about him.

Fans flocked to the Twitter replies to say what a good job they thought she was doing of co-parenting, with one writing: "Well done to you for ensuring your little girl is proud of her daddy. You obviously both put her 1st where a lot of separated parents do not."
