Cara Kilbey has revealed she is back in hospital for the second time after undergoing emergency surgery for an interrupted ectopic pregnancy.
The former TOWIE star, 33, shared an arm snap with a cannula on Instagram on Sunday, explaining that she was admitted again with kidney stones.
Telling her fans why she’s been silent on social media in recent weeks, the mother-of-two has frankly detailed her recent health issues.

Cara, who starred in four series of The Only Way Is Essex prior to its release in late 2012, wrote: “I’ve been quiet on Instagram lately…
“Last month, I found out that I had an ectopic pregnancy that ruptured and caused internal bleeding, so I was rushed to the theater for emergency surgery.
“Now I’m back, but this time with kidney stones… I think I’m late for vacation.
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in one of the fallopian tubes.

A ruptured fallopian tube is very serious and surgery to repair it should be done as soon as possible, according to the NHS.
Cara joined TOWIE in 2011 and was introduced to the cast by boyfriend Billie Mucklow, but has since left reality TV behind.
She now runs a good, pre-loved designer business, often sharing branded items on Instagram at discounted prices.
And after quitting the show, Cara met her boyfriend Daniel Harris in 2014 and in 2015 she miscarried while she was five months pregnant.

The couple now have two children, daughter Penelope Blu and their son Hunter, their baby boy being born after Daniel had served a prison sentence.
Daniel was accused of organizing a drug empire, but was cleared of drug charges and convicted of hiding £ 116,000 of ill-gotten gains in 2017.
Cara had waited patiently while her partner languished in prison, shortly after the birth of Penelope, whom she brought to visit him once or twice a week.
Daniel has been accused of making “big profits” by sending drug couriers on mopeds disguised as trainee taxi drivers in central London for three and a half years.

They announced they were expecting Hunter in June 2017, just two months after Daniel’s release.
The couple met while Harris was living in Spain with her father and she was on vacation there. They returned to the UK in September 2015 when she became pregnant.
It has previously been reported that other men, some of whom were his friends, have pleaded guilty to participating in the plots and have been jailed for more than 68 years.
Cara still shares snaps of her beau and their children, with her latest posting a lovely image of Daniel and Penelope in the sea to mark her birthday in March.
