Christine McGuinness has worried fans after sharing a picture of herself in hospital, while telling her followers to always be kind because “you never know what people are dealing with behind their smile”.

Christine, who has been married to TV star Paddy McGuinness since June 2011, posted the selfie late Thursday night.

In an accompanying message, the mum-of-three told her followers not to worry though urged them “to stay strong”.

“Please hear me when I say ‘I am very well so please don’t worry’,” she wrote. “I just had a little snooze, honestly it wasn’t long enough. But whilst I’m laying here, I’ll take a selfie and send a little reminder to stay strong.”

She went on: “Live, laugh and love every day. Be kind always, you never know what people are dealing with behind their smile.”
