ITV Corrie and Emmerdale’s Hayley Tamaddon diagnosed with meningitis after worrying fans with hospital snap
Hayley Tammadon, a former soap opera actress, tweeted a concerning photo of herself in the hospital and then informed her followers that she had been diagnosed with meningitis. The actress was seen on an IV drip after being transported to the hospital over the weekend.
Hayley posted a photo of herself covered in blankets with a drip linked to her arm that was taken from above on Tuesday, August 30. “So.. not the greatest of weekends,” the 45-year-old wrote as the description for the photo.
She didn’t go into detail about what had transpired, but supporters instantly showered her with congratulations. After feeling as though her “head could burst,” Hayley got a brain scan, which is how she discovered her unsettling diagnosis, she has now returned to social media.
The Emmerdale and Coronation Street star released a lengthy message on Instagram in which she wrote: “I ended myself in the hospital with meningitis last weekend because things did not go as planned.
I rapidly became ill. And instead of dropping, my temperature was rising. My eyes stung from the light, and I thought my skull was going to blow up. My body hurt, and my neck felt stiff.”
She said, “I called a family friend Anthony Kearns, who works as a doctor at Blackpool Hospital A&E, and told him my symptoms. He told me to get to the hospital as soon as possible.”
“I was led into a cubicle and straightaway the brilliant doctor, Dr. Karun, said I think this is meningitis, but at that point they weren’t sure if it was bacterial or viral,” Hayley, who played Andrea Beckett in Corrie and Delilah Dingle in Emmerdale, continued. I thus received potent antibiotics via drip. A lumbar puncture and a brain scan later revealed it was viral. After a few days, I was told to go home.
Hayley continued by thanking the medical staff at Blackpool Hospital for “taking care of me,” mentioning each one by name before praising Caitlin in particular for “holding my hand through the lumbar puncture.” The single mother claimed: “I squeezed it so hard I was really afraid I’d broken her fingers.
There were other others whose names I regrettably forget. But they were all extraordinary people. And I sincerely appreciate it.” One of the first Twitter accounts to respond to Hayley’s message was Blackpool’s Emergency Department. 2 I appreciate your warm words and the special mentions, Hayley. It is truly appreciated. “Get better soon,” they wrote.
When asked how she was doing now by another fan, Hayley responded that she was “so much better” and that she was “just taking it easy.” Her famous friends were also showing their affection. Samia Longchambon, a former castmate on Corrie, wrote: “Massive hugs Hayley.. rest up.”
Georgia Taylor, who plays Toyah Habeeb in the ITV soap opera, said: “Oh my goodness, you poor thing! I’m very happy to hear that you’re doing well now. Love to all.” Writer Gaby Roslin, a presenter: “What a word!
Huge hugs are coming your way, and we wish you a quick recovery.” Glad you’re okay, commented Joe McElderry, a former X Factor champion. Dr. Ranj Singh, a celebrity of CBBC and ITV, retorted, “Get well soon beautiful one.”
When she disclosed she had broken up with her fiancé earlier this year, Hayley wrote in the letter that her life had been “turned upside down” as she celebrated her first Mother’s Day alone with her kid, Jasper.
Back in 2019, Hayley and real estate agent Adrian became engaged just weeks after she joyfully announced her pregnancy.
At the age of 42, Hayley announced the birth of her “miracle” baby boy on October 14, 2019.
After being informed that she would never be able to conceive, she made the announcement in April of the same year.
