Jamie Lomas and Kym Marsh' daughter, Polly, has been rushed into hospital, after the six-year-old appeared to be suffering from a shortness of breath.

With Hollyoaks star, Jamie, currently participating as a contestant on ITV's I'm a Celebrity, the actor is apparently unaware of the incident.

A 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."

Corrie's Kym Marsh, who is no longer in a relationship with Jamie, father of Polly, told of the incident in her column for OK! magazine.

The soap-star described the event as a 'bit of a drama', recalling how she'd had to 'rush' to hospital with her daughter, who was 'terrified'.

The 41-year-old opened up to her audience about the night, saying: "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.

"It was horrible and her cough sounded like she was sea lion. I didn't get to bed until 5am and even then I couldn't sleep.

"The hospital were brilliant and the staff put Polly at ease because she was terrified. It was really horrible to see."

We can only imagine how scary this must of been for both Kym and her daughter, but we're glad to hear that the youngster is apparently on the mend and according to her mum, little Polly is 'really missing' her dad.

The actress gushed: "Polly is dying to see him on the telly and is really missing him. She is going to give him the biggest cuddle ever when he comes back from the jungle.

"We've been laughing at Jamie's snoring keeping everybody awake. I'm surprised it's taken that long to come out!

"It's funny they made him prime minister. If he was actual prime minister it would God help the country! He's certainly been entertaining and he's coming across well."

The two soap actors began dating each other back in 2008, welcoming daughter Polly into the world in 2011, and later getting married in 2012.

Unfortunately, the couple split a year later after reports of unreasonable behaviour, noted by Kym during their divorce.

It may seem unfair to withhold information about his daughter, while he is in the jungle.

But on the other hand, it may have resulted in an early leave for the contestant, which would have ended up being unnecessary now that Polly is reportedly on the mend.

No one can really say what should have been done, we're just glad she is OK.
