Cara, who starred in four series of The Only Way Is Essex before her exit at the end of 2012, wrote: ‘I’ve been quiet on Instagram recently…

‘Last month I found out I had an ectopic pregnancy that had ruptured and caused an internal bleed, so was rushed into theatre for an emergency op.

‘Now I’m back again, but this time with kidney stones… Think I’m overdue a holiday.’

An ectopic pregnancy happens when a fertilised egg implants itself outside of the womb, usually in one of the fallopian tubes.

A ruptured fallopian tube is very serious and surgery to repair it needs to be carried out as quickly as possible, according to the NHS.

Cara joined TOWIE in 2011 and was introduced to the cast by her pal Billie Mucklow however has since left reality TV behind her.

She now runs a pre loved designer good business, often sharing branded items to Instagram at discounted prices. 

And after leaving the show, Cara met her boyfriend Daniel Harris in 2014 and in 2015 she suffered a miscarriage when she was five months pregnant.

The couple now have two children, daughter Penelope Blu and son Hunter, with their little boy being born after Daniel served time in prison. 

Daniel was accused of masterminding a drugs empire, but was cleared of drugs charges and instead found guilty of stashing £116,000 in ill-gotten gains in 2017.

Cara had been patiently waiting while her partner languished in jail, shortly after the birth of Penelope, who she brought to visit him one to two times a week. 

Daniel was accused of making ‘vast profits’ by sending drug couriers on mopeds disguised as trainee cab drivers around central London over three-and-a-half years.

They announced they were expecting Hunter in June 2017, just two months after Daniel was released.

The couple met while Harris was living out in Spain with his father and she was on holiday there. They returned to the UK in September 2015 when she fell pregnant.

It was previously reported that other men, some of whom were his friends, went on to plead guilty to their part in the plots and have been jailed for more than 68 years.

Cara still shares snaps of her beau and their children, with her last posting a lovely image of Daniel and Penelope in the sea to mark his birthday in March.
