Rylan Clark has been forced to pull out of his Radio 2 show as he revels his beloved mum, Linda, has been rushed to hospital.
Linda has been living with Crohn's since she was in her thirties, which the NHS explains 'is a lifelong condition where parts of the digestive system become inflamed'.
She has had multiple surgeries 'to remove a small part of the digestive system' and takes medicine daily to manage her condition.
Linda had a three-week stay in hospital in 2017 after a procedure went wrong and contracted sepsis in 2018, which was almost fatal.
During a 2019 appearance on Loose Women in 2019, Rylan said: "My mum has suffered all my life from severe Crohn's disease and I don’t think Crohn's gets spoken about enough. I nearly lost my mum last year, again, for the third time."
Speaking about the recent incident, Rylan said: "So unfortunately I took my mum away on her first holiday in a good few years and sadly she's had quite a bad fall, resulting in her having to have surgery out here."
His post continued: "She's not in the best health with her other conditions and this has made it more complicated. My priority at the moment is my mum."
Rylan explained that DJ Scott Mills would be covering his 3pm and 6pm slots today.
"Cheers scott for covering me at radio 2 and Thanks to the people out here that have sent their well wishes.
"Praying for a successful surgery and a quick recovery. Will update you on mummy. Linda as and when I can x."
The worrying post came on Friday morning (1 September) with his 1.7m followers leaping in to offer words and support to the devoted son.
Stacey Solomon said: "Aw hope Linda’s ok! If you need anything you know where I am!"
Kate Garraway said: "Sorry to hear Rylan," while Vanessa Feltz commented: "O my goodness I am sorry to hear it! Praying for a speedy recovery."
Comedian and Parenting Hell co-host, Josh Widdicombe, sent three love-heart emojis in solidarity.
He told Sunday Times Magazine : "She's not dealing with her fame, she doesn't really know. She's not on social media and I'm never gonna let her be.
"My mum, Linda, is my biggest f****** headache, but I don't know what I'd do without her."
Get well soon, Linda!
