McFly star Harry Judd and his wife Izzy have had an awful scare after their two-month-old son Kit was taken to hospital.

While it’s not clear what was wrong with the tot, Izzy posted a heartbreaking message to her Instagram page, in which she described it as a “frightening experience” and said that her poor lad had been “very distressed”.

The message was accompanied by a picture of the baby’s leg wrapped in a hospital tag, and with a wire protruding from his toe to monitor his progress.

Former Escala violinist Izzy, 33, wrote: “A seriously tough week… Kit has been a poorly boy and we ended up in hospital.

“The little man is doing better tonight and we’re hoping to get home tomorrow.

“Whilst I sit by his bed, I just want to take a moment to say how amazingly lucky we are to have the #NHS, who in our hour of need came to our rescue.

“We have been looked after by the most amazing paramedics, doctors and beautifully caring nurses.

“A very frightening experience was eased by a very kind and reassuring nurse, who held my hand when my little boy was very distressed.

“Tonight, Kit has given me the most beautiful smiles. My heart has longed to see those for the last few very long days.”

“I have experienced so many emotions but what I have learned is don’t be afraid to call for help and ALWAYS remember a mother’s instinct is very powerful.”

Harry and Izzy, who also have an 18-month-old daughter Lola, welcomed their new arrival in August.

Following the birth, the McFly drummer posted an adorable tweet praising mother and baby.

He wrote: “We have a son! Kit Harry Francis Judd arrived this morning at 6:37.

“Both he & his mummy are doing very well! @mrs_izzyjudd is my hero!”

Shortly after, the happy couple posted a picture of themselves enjoying their first date night since the baby was born.

And another added: “Aw bless the poor little man!! So glad to hear he’s on the mend. Hugs to you all.”
