Emmerdale stars’ real life health battles – chronic UTI to excruciating pain

Since Bob Hope was hospitalised due to a shocking heart attack, Emmerdale has been filled with turmoil.

Tony Audenshaw’s character, The Dales regular, became unwell after seeing his partner Wendy (Susan Cookson), with whom she has been having an affair, and Liam (Jonny McPherson).

Bob had a heart attack as a result of the dispute between him and Liam.

Thankfully, he survived, allowing the terrified viewers to breathe a sigh of relief.

Unfortunately, numerous cast members are also suffering with health challenges outside of their roles as Emmerdale actors.

Adam Thomas

Adam recently revealed that he has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints. Adam is best known for playing Adam Barton in the ITV serial opera.

The 35-year-old told followers on Instagram, “I’ve been in a lot of pain since January; it started with my knees and moved to my wrists, fingers, and now ankles and toes.”

“I never knew what was happening and finally, after several blood tests and back-and-forth visits to doctors and hospitals, I’ve been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.”

The actor announced his participation in Strictly earlier this year, telling fans that the timing “couldn’t have been better” and that he chose to compete in the BBC ballroom competition “because I just want to be able to move again, get fit, and do it all with a smile on my face.”

Claire King

Claire, 61, a Kim Tate actor, also suffers from rheumatoid arthritis.

She had the ailment while she was in her 20s, and she has previously spoken up about how difficult it has been for her.

She admitted to having flare-ups in 2020, telling OK! magazine that they are unpleasant and leave you feeling really exhausted.

“The cold seems like it goes to your bones when I’m on location in the winter.

People frequently overlook it since you don’t use a wheelchair or limp, but on the programme, they take care of me and offer me more interior scenes during the winter.

Martelle Edinborough

Martelle disclosed that she underwent surgery earlier this year to treat a brain aneurysm.

The actress, who is most known for portraying Suzy Merton in the soap opera, posted a message to her followers on Twitter saying she had received news of a brain aneurysm that had previously been assumed to be small and stable but had actually always been large enough to require treatment.

I’m not sure why it took so long to draw attention to the error, but despite my initial shock, I chose to see it as a blessing and refused to let it cause me to feel worry, stress, or anxiety.

When Martelle underwent surgery, the surgeons, according to Martelle, “were able to amazingly and successfully treat the aneurysm, placing a flow diverter in the artery to cut the blood supply to it, soon enabling it to disappear for good.”

Gemma Oaten

Gemma revealed to her fans last year that she suffered with milk alkali syndrome.

The 39-year-old actress posted on Instagram that she had “excruciating chest, stomach, and back pains” and had gone to the hospital.

When you have excessive quantities of calcium in your blood, a condition known as milk alkali syndrome develops, according to Gemma, who used to play Rachel Breckle in the soap opera.

According to her, kidney failure or even death could result from the sickness “in rare and severe cases (like mine)”.

The celebrity then admitted to her fans that the event caused her to “re-evaluate time”.

She said, “It forced me to reset and made me look at myself.”

“Even though it’s been awful, I’ve finally found something I’ve been looking for for what seems like ages. tranquilly and lucidity.

Samantha Giles

In her 40s, Samantha, who had played Bernice Blackstock on-screen for more than 20 years, revealed that she had a painful health problem.

The 52-year-old celebrity suffered with a persistent UTI for two years.

She admitted to the Mirror, “I had an entrenched infection and it was scary.

“Because you are continuously anticipating when you will need to use the loo, you are afraid to go to the store or go out. It’s downbeat.
