Chloe Madeley has revealed that she had to take her daughter Bodhi to hospital after the one-year-old suffered a ‘scary’ health scare.

Chloe, who’s the daughter of Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley and former This Morning star Judy Finnigan, gave birth to her baby in August 2022.

In October last year, she and her husband James Haskell announced that they had separated after five years of marriage.

In posts shared on her Instagram Story, the 36-year-old shared that Bodhi had to receive medical attention after coming down with croup, a condition that’s known to commonly affect the airways of babies and young children.

Posting on her Instagram Story, Chloe shared a picture of Bodhi sitting on a bed with a packet of Quavers, writing in her caption: ‘Long night but she’s thrilled about vending machine Quavers for breakfast.’

After posting another picture of her daughter eating the crisps, the personal trainer then shared a black-and-white photo of herself lying on a hospital chair with Bodhi resting on top of her.

‘Bodhi absolutely fine now FYI, she has croup, scary and distressing but dealth with swiftly,’ she wrote.

According to the NHS, croup can usually improve on its own within 48 hours.

If a child has croup, people are advised to make sure the child sits upright, to try and keep them calm, to give them plenty of fluids, to check on them regularly throughout the day and night, and to give them paracetamol or ibuprofen to ease discomfort or a high temperature.

The NHS also emphasises not to put a child who has croup in a steamy room or to get them to inhale steam.

What is croup?

Croup is a condition that’s known to commonly affect the airways of babies and young children.

Symptoms of croup can include a barking cough, a hoarse voice, difficulty breathing and a high-pitched, rasping sound when breathing in, the NHS outlines.

The national health service stresses that while croup is ‘usually mild’, it’s ‘important to call NHS 111 if you think your child has croup as they may need treatment’.

The NHS adds that you should call 999 or go to A&E under the following circumstances:

If the child is struggling to breathe or having difficulty breathing
If they have blue, grey, pale or blotchy skin, lips or tongue
If they are sleepier than usual or having difficulty waking up
If they are unusually quiet or still
If they are limp, floppy or not responding like they normally would
If they are very upset or restless
If they cannot be calmed down from breathing difficulties
If they are unwell and drooling more than usual
If they are finding it hard to swallow, or would prefer to sit than lie down

In October last year, James, 38, and Chloe confirmed that they had decided to split.

Their statement read: ‘Chloe and I mutually decided to separate at the end of September 2023.

‘We had not planned on releasing a statement at this time – certainly not while the television show was airing – but constant speculation about our marriage has, unfortunately, forced our hand.

‘Beyond this statement, we will not be speaking about this matter publicly, and we would request privacy at this time.

‘Our sole focus now is our beautiful daughter. We shall continue to co-parent with nothing but love.’
