Louise Thompson's fiance Ryan Libbey has said he's "holding on by a thread" after the star went to hospital over "alarming blood test results".

The Made In Chelsea star was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) after suffering complications while giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter last year, and has since opened up on social media about her mental health struggles.

This week the reality star, 32, shared a snap on Instagram of herself looking sad, saying: "My poor body and brain are all over the place."

Sharing a picture of himself in a facemask, he wrote: "Just as I thought I was approaching a time period where I could focus some energy into my own therapy and healing, Louise unfortunately still struggles with various things every single day and some of those symptoms are worsening.

"We're now back at the hospital (this time private as we've been so let down by the NHS) because Louise has received some alarming blood test results.

"At this moment I don't know how serious this is, but it feels devastating to be sat outside a hospital waiting room, seven months on from Louise giving birth."

He went on: "I'm holding on by a thread, trying to work, keep business alive, earn money to support Louise and Leo, trying to keep up with my own ambitions (and failing).

"It's not like me to share stories like this but I feel so s*** at the moment. Maybe this unload will help."
