Deborah later took to her Instagram stories where she shared a tearful update.
She began: “Good evening from a very fed up girl who is day three in hospital for an infection, that’s getting treated. I’ve been crying for most of the day.

She explained that she had asked if her mum could at least visit her while in hospital after witnessing the crowds at Wimbledon and Wembley stadium.
