What is a hernia?

A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall.

A hernia usually develops between your chest and hips. In many cases, it causes no or very few symptoms, although you may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin.

Sam continued: ‘The worst news really is it means no Nando’s for a while.

‘The best news is I have an actual reason to stay home and annoy Zara for the next few days, and she can’t get angry at me,’ he joked.  

Elsewhere, Zara, 24, shared an adorable selfie to her story as she rested her head on his shoulder and looked after her beau. 

Alongside the snap she penned: ‘Had to take this guy to hospital. He’s not been very well for the past few weeks and we got some complicated blood results back. Hopefully everything will all be ok!’
