Billie Faiers revealed that her son Arthur was rushed to hospital while the family enjoyed a post-lockdown staycation.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Billie Faiers took to her Instagram page to reveal to her over two million followers that her son Arthur had been taken to hospital.

Billie and three-year-old Arthur along with the TOWIE star’s husband Greg Shepherd (opens in new tab) and six-year-old daughter Nelly (opens in new tab), who have all been in lockdown together (opens in new tab), are currently enjoying a staycation in the Cotswolds.

However, the family had a slight hiccup when little Arthur was taken to hospital after getting into an accident during the getaway.

But young Arthur seemed to handle his incident well, as the little trooper was pictured by mum Billie with an adorable grin plastered across his face.
