Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson is back in hospital as she continued to struggle with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following the birth of her son last year.

Thompson endured a difficult birth and almost died in childbirth when her son Leo was born in November 2021.

The reality star's team confirmed the news on social media: "Hey everyone, Team Pocket here. Louise is unfortunately back in hospital for a little while and is therefore taking a break from social media.

"Like all of you I am sure, we wish her a speedy recovery and are sending her all the love. Louise has asked us to keep you all updated on some exciting bits going on at Pocket in the meantime while she is away."

She wrote on Instagram: "To put it bluntly I’m struggling to move on with ‘normal’ life. Every day I feel physically very unwell and every other day I seem to have an hour long period (sometimes longer) where I feel messed up in my brain – I don’t know what it is, but it feels like brain damage or a mini stroke."

The former Made in Chelsea star also said: "It sort of feels like I’m having a major allergic reaction to something in my brain.

"I go from feeling really low and agitated to then feeling a rush of something and then I get the worst cramping around my pelvis but then my brain levels out, a bit like the chemicals have been restored. I’ve been told that this isn’t a result of my mental health medication?!?"

Thompson's partner Ryan Libbey has also said he struggles with PTSD in the aftermath of her pregnancy.
