Tamzin Outhwaite has shared how her other half Tom Child was rushed to hospital after experiencing pains in his stomach.
The 51 year old, who recently spent her fourth anniversary apart from her boyfriend, took to her Twitter feed to explain what had happened with her 253,700 followers.
“Good morning all… My bloke went to A and E with bad stomach pains and ended up in theatre having his appendix out,” she shared.
The EastEnders star, who is most well known for playing Mel Owen on the BBC soap opera, then urged her fans to head over to his Instagram feed to see a hilarious video of him in the hospital.

“If you fancy a laugh go to his insta @tc_childie .He has never had an op or morphine. He has apparently been cracking up the doctors. #morphinevirgin,” she added.
Filmmaker Tom, 30, shared two clips on his social media, where in one he spoke about how he felt like a character in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Clearly enjoying the morphine, he asked for a nurse to “slip” some more as he said: “What was your name again fella? That’s a beautiful name, beautiful name, beautiful person.
“I’ll tell you what would make you an even more beautiful person – if you were to slip me a bit more of that morphine.”
In a second clip, Tom furrowed his brows as he was told he couldn’t have more morphine by a second person out of the camera shot.
“It hurts so much Mandy. Just a little bit of morphine would go down superbly well, just like a bit of cheese and wine at the end of a meal,” he said.

Celebrity friends were quick to comment as Amanda Holden wrote: “So funny,” with a crying with laughter emoji.
Kate Thornton shared four crying with laughter emojis before adding: “Get better Tom!”
It comes after Tamzin recently confessed she would break up with her boyfriend Tom if he ever decided he wanted children.
Opening up about their relationship, she told The Sun: “You know that people are thinking, ‘Yeah, but what about when he wants kids?’
“He really doesn’t want kids but if he said, ‘Babe, I really want to have children’, then why would I stop him doing that?”
Tamzin, who previously saved three children from drowning, added: “I’ve got two. I’ve really got to keep my eye on the ball keeping these two well, alive and healthy. I’m not having any more. No way. I’m done.”
