In an Instagram post she wrote: “The comeback is always STRONGER than the setback.

“Finally starting to feel a little more human again, I’ve never been so scared! When the doctor looks at you in shock and says we need to call an ambulance right now, a day before I was due to fly to LA.

“Thank you all so much for your well wishes and support it means so much. Meg xx”.
