Jamie Laing and his partner, Sophie Habboo, announced their engagement on Saturday, December 18. The couple has been together since April 2019.

However, what should have been a happy occasion for the couple took a turn for the worst as Sophie “nearly died”.

During an episode of his podcast, Private Parts, Jamie spoke to co-host Alex Mytton about what had happened.

He said: “I got engaged and my fiancée nearly died.”

The Strictly star went on to say that after he and Sophie had celebrated their engagement, his fiancée had fallen ill in the night. The couple had been eating oysters the night before, leading to Jamie believing Sophie had food poisoning.

However, when Sophie was sick in bed, Jamie started to get worried.

“I clear her up and get her to the bathroom, we go downstairs and her lips are looking a little bit blue,” he explained on the podcast.

Then, when Jamie was recording his podcast, Sophie screamed for him. Her oxygen levels had dropped, leading to her lips and fingers turning blue. Jamie then rushed his wife-to-be to the hospital.

Jamie went on to say that the hospital was “rammed full of people”, and Sophie’s lips and fingers were “going bluer and bluer”.

“Everyone was like, ‘you’ve got to sit and wait’, but she’s turning blue,” he recounted. “Sophie was just crying tears into her face mask.”

“I’ve never had fear like that in my life ever,” he confessed.

A woman the couple were sat next to let Sophie use a machine she had that checked oxygen levels. It was then that Jamie and Sophie learned that Sophie’s oxygen levels were lower than they should be.

Jamie called a friend who was a doctor, and the couple then went to another hospital. Sophie was put on a drip and her oxygen levels were checked.

Jamie and Sophie still don’t know how the 28-year-old’s oxygen levels dropped so low. Despite this, Jamie was very grateful to the doctors and nurses who helped his fiancée.

“Thanks to these amazing doctors, it was fine, and then we were in the hospital for about seven hours doing all of that,” he said.

He then went on to say that his wife-to-be was on the mend, and everything is back to normal.
