Former Love Island contestant Zara McDermott was hospitalized after suffering “severe pain” in her abdomen.
The 25-year-old, who has made a series of TV documentaries since appearing on the ITV dating show, was treated for a suspected ovarian cyst rupture on Friday night.
Writing on Instagram, McDermott said she went back to the hospital Saturday morning for another ultrasound to check if her ovaries were torsion.
Sharing a photo of herself in a hospital bed, she wrote: “Wow last night was hectic! Sam (Thompson, her boyfriend) had to take me to A&E because I had severe pain in my stomach…
“I had the feeling it was a ruptured cyst on my ovary because I’ve had one before but on the other and it feels so much the same.”
McDermott thanked the A&E team for treating her, saying they completed all of her tests and scans within two hours.
In a second post, she also thanked her followers for their supportive messages, adding: “They found blood in my stomach, which definitely shows it’s a tumor. the cyst has ruptured and nothing else.”
McDermott said her ovaries “look fine” and are not twisted before praising NHS staff as “awesome”.
Since appearing on Love Island in 2018, McDermott has made documentaries about revenge porn, sexual assault and disordered eating for the BBC.
