Another said: "Thoughts to Lauren", while a third commented: "Hold on in there Mum and hope someone is looking after you too."

Another added: "Sending much love to Lauren. Also for all your family as it must be so hard for you all".

While another wrote: "Sending out my healing thoughts to her."

After being admitted to hospital in April, Lauren shared a brief update with fans letting them know that while she was then "on the mend," she had nearly died.

Lauren underwent her emergency brain surgery on April 14, with her mum posting an update the following day to Lauren's Twitter account letting fans know that she was recovering well.

She penned: "Lauren has woken up after her brain surgery. They had to shave her hair. As you know this is Lauren's worst nightmare but she would have died if not.

"The amazing staff in the Heath Hospital have been wonderful. Thank you for your kind words, her recovery ahead. Update to follow."

Throughout her recovery, both Lauren and Katy have been sure to thank people for their kind words, get-well cards and flowers. They've also thanked the doctors and nurses at the NHS for their help and support, and for saving Lauren's life.

Now, nearly two months on from her surgery, the Celebrity Big Brother alum has suffered a seizure. To help her heal, she's been put in an induced coma, which, according to is "performed on critically ill patients", and "has been used for a quarter of a century or more to put the brain in a state of temporary hibernation to allow time for the brain to recuperate".
