Catherine Tyldesley has revealed that her mother was rushed to the hospital on Friday for emergency surgery.
The former Coronation Street star, 36, took to Instagram to praise the NHS for their ’round the clock care’ during a ‘horrifying’ week.
The disease is not thought to be coronavirus-related, although Catherine’s mother and father are said to have both had the disease.

The news comes after Catherine reveals that her grandfather is fighting for his life in the hospital because she also contracted COVID-19.
However, her concerns have eased since Friday as she revealed that her mother is now home from the hospital and recovering.
She uploaded a photo of two gloved hands, clasping each other and captioning, “It was a terrible 6 days. Mum was admitted to intensive care on Friday evening and needs emergency surgery. The worry was like nothing I’ve ever known.
“I would like to take this opportunity to express my infinite gratitude to our #NHS and #SalfordRoyal Hospital. The doctors worked around the clock to quickly treat my mother and protect her from # covid19 at all times.

In the six days she spent in ICU, she witnessed heartbreak and miracles. Every time I spoke to her, she described the medical staff as angels. My mom spent a week of her life with the greatest heroes.
“Today I received the wonderful news that I could take her home. I have never felt gratitude again in my life. I will continue to thank and pray every Thursday – after closing all the heroes still fighting, for all the heroes we have lost, and for all the families that cannot be with loved ones. ‘
She told followers about her grandfather’s medical status and continued, “My grandfather is still fighting for his life in the same hospital. Not being able to see him is heartbreaking, but it is comforting to know that he is surrounded by earthly angels.
“Don’t stop giving. Don’t stop hoping. DO NOT stop clapping. DO NOT stop praying. DO NOT stop counting minor blessings. Stay safe. Save lives. There is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Welcome home mom! ‘
At the beginning of the month, Catherine took to Instagram and told fans that her grandfather is ‘really, really bad’.
Catherine said she is convinced that her husband Tom Pitfield and son Alfie, five, contracted the corona virus during a flight last November.

Catherine said, “He’s currently on a hospital ventilator.
“My parents were really poor for about a month. They were really struggling to shake it.
“I am convinced that I have many friends who are doctors and most have said that it has been going on since September, October and that people have kept it quiet and that it has been built and built and built.
“I am convinced that my Tom and Alfie had it in November. They caught it on a flight and a man collapsed on a plane, a young man, with oxygen, couldn’t breathe. ‘

“Very, very bad”: Catherine said: “He is currently on a respirator in the hospital.”
“All the symptoms of corona. The day after Tom woke up and said, “Call me an ambulance I can’t breathe.” And you now know how fit my Tom is – he’s never sick. He was so sick.
Catherine continued, “Alfie got it four days later. And it’s only now that I go, “Oh my God that was it.”
“I put it on Instagram and so many people sent me a message saying they were on my Emirates flight and got sick.”
