The two-year-old lad required stitches on his lip this week after he suffered a nasty fall last weekend, but the 31-year-old star had to take her and fiance Joe Swash's boy back to the medical facility last night, and she expected to be "in for the long haul".

She wrote on her Instagram Stories: "Aw guys...

"We are back in triage because Rex's temperature has been spiking tonight.

"They're sure it's all ok but because he's little and post op they won't take any risks, so it looks like we are in for the long haul tonight. (sic)"

Stacey - who is pregnant with her second child with Joe, and has sons Zach, 13, and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships - admitted it has been one of her "most emotional weeks".

She added: "It's been the longest, most emotional week. I honestly don't know how I've even got one eyelash still on."

Earlier this week, the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' star told her fans about the "nightmare" accident.

She said: "We had a nightmare yesterday. Rex fell over in the garden and we were like, ‘Up you get.’ Then we looked and it was not an ‘up you get’ situation.

"He hurt his lip so we took him to A&E and he had some little butterfly strips put on.

"I’m going back today to get him some proper stitches, because it’s in a really awkward place.

"But he was so good and he didn’t make a sound. He was just like, ‘Yeah, fix it,’ to the doctor. But he was so good."

And she later confirmed Rex was home from hospital, and thanked the NHS for their hard work.

In a post a few days ago, Stacey wrote: "I know I'm extremely overtired but my hormones can't take these three right now.

"That's the biggest smile I've seen on his face all day... you just wouldn't even think any of toaday happened! We love you pickle bum.

"Everything went so well. We will be bac soon. Thank you for your lovely kind messages.

"Thank you to everyone here at @bhrut_nhs from giving birth here to fixing the pickles your staff and everyone who works so hard in your trust have always been so amazing.

"And I know first hand how busy and hard worked you all are. So grateful to our NHS always and forever...

"Thank you for all that you do. You're incredible. And we are so lucky to have you (sic)"
