Sharing a snap of him in hospital, Chris wrote on Instagram: "Took a turn Wednesday, the NHS were incredible. Not just caring, friendly, and all the things you'd expect, but more the way they conduct themselves.

"The situations they deal with day in day out, and the way they're spoken to on occasions shocked me.

"Their patience is incredible and the staff are amazing.

"Really are unsung heroes so thank you."

The star, who shot to fame on Love Island in 2017, also shared kind words about his pal too.

Chris added: "Also @jaso.brightman I appreciate you, sat beside me for 10 hours through the night on a plastic chair without a second of sleep.

"I think I could count on one hand the people who would have done that for me.

"Maybe one and a half hands."

Luckily Chris is on the road to recovery.

He finished the post with: "On the mend anyway x."

Chris shared that he wasn't feeling well at the start of the month.

He posted a worrying selfie of him in hospital gown and woollen hat, with a tube inserted in his arm.

Chris hinted that his lively weekend caused his trip to hospital, as he shared: "So basically all my antics on Saturday have caused this.

"When I was posting about running 4k I was not truly hungover Sunday and Monday, but I was chronically dehydrated and have alcohol hepatitis.

What is alcohol hepatitis?

CHRIS Hughes is battling alcohol hepatitis - but what is it?

Hepatitis is an umbrella term describing inflammation of the liver.

It can be the result of heavy drinking or a viral infection.

There are several different types of the disease which are caused by different viruses and are treated in different ways.

The NHS states: "Alcoholic hepatitis, which is unrelated to infectious hepatitis, is a potentially serious condition that can be caused by alcohol misuse over a longer period.

"When this develops, it may be the first time a person is aware they're damaging their liver through alcohol.

"Less commonly, alcoholic hepatitis can occur if you drink a large amount of alcohol in a short period of time (binge drinking).

"The liver damage associated with mild alcoholic hepatitis is usually reversible if you stop drinking permanently.

"Severe alcoholic hepatitis, however, is a serious and life-threatening illness.

"Many people die from the condition each year in the UK, and some people only find out they have liver damage when their condition reaches this stage."

"Not cool, not cool at all.

"Essentially my liver is damaged and couldn't consume the alcohol consumptions and the bloods have also shown that."

In a second hospital snap, showing him looking sleepy and propped up against a wall, he added: "Our NHS are insanely good, as we know.

"They have been thorough and over-the-top friendly to me which is the perfect combo.

"I haven't managed to consume water that's why I am on this drip, a sip of water makes me feel sick.

"I am ruined. I have learned my lesson.

"My issue though, quite clear.

"I went for a run on Sunday and I went to a class Monday and did a 45-minute circuit, burnt 550 calories, then went to the sauna to sweat again for 45 minutes thinking I'm getting the alcohol out but in fact I am just torturing my body."

In his final slide, posting a selection of images from his reality TV stint, he added: "Takes me back to the day I left the villa as I had the same thing but from sunstroke.

"Last night was the worst night of my life.

"Hallucinating, sick and the back pain is the worst pain ever. Dull ache relentless.

"Been at the hospital since 5am, went to another clinic at 8:30am, to be sent straight back here to sort my pathetic life out.

"Moral is, NHS are the best and don't go and watch Sunderland [FC] the same day as a night out. It ruins you."

Chris is best known for placing third on the third series of Love Island with ex Olivia Attwood.

However he is now a sports presenter covering events such as horse racing and cricket.
