The former Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon was rushed to hospital with a mystery illness over the weekend.

Hayley had let people know of her situation when she posted on her Instagram story, of her in a hospital bed hooked up to a drip.

She captioned the post: "So.. not the greatest of weekends.."

It is not yet known why Hayley had needed to go to hospital, as no further updates have been given yet on her social media.

Earlier this year Hayley had another health scare after a brush with Covid that left her with no energy.
