It comes after Jazmine took to her Instagram Stories on Friday where she posted an update on her terrifying health scare, admitting she was ‘feeling lucky to be alive’ after previously telling fans she’d been rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
The nightclub manager revealed that she was ‘vomiting uncontrollably’ and turned ‘blue/grey’ and as sepsis developed within minutes after she was rushed to A&E needing emergency surgery.
Jazmine shared a snap of herself hooked up to a drip while lying on a hospital bed and revealed that she’d undergone an operation after becoming ‘really unwell’ with – what was at that time – a mystery illness.
Jazmine wrote: ‘I’d like to firstly thank everyone for their concern over my health this past week and let everyone know what’s happened.

‘I became unwell in the early hours of Tuesday morning and was taken into hospital later that day. Whilst waiting to be seen my condition deteriorated rapidly to what I now know is sepsis.
‘Had it not been for the quick thinking and action of a staff member who noticed how unwell I had become things could have been very different.
‘Within minutes I had turned a blue/grey colour and was vomiting uncontrollably. My blood pressure was 70/30. It was at this point that the doctors informed my family that I was seriously unwell.
‘I was fortunate to have the most amazing care and was quickly hooked up to IVs containing antibiotics and fluids. Blood results showed that I had developed Sepsis – so rapidly it happened in a matter of minutes.

On a second post, the reality star continued: ‘Sepsis is a rare but serious complication of an infection. Without treatment sepsis causes multiple organ failures and death.
‘We believe this happened because I had ignored an infection whilst away from home last week and as a result needed emergency surgery in the early hours of Wednesday morning once my condition had stabilised.’
‘I want to thank our amazing NHS for the quick action and excellent care. I still have a long recovery ahead and will be taking some much needed rest, but I am feeling incredibly lucky to still be alive right now.’
Jazmine then shared a link for her followers to find out more about sepsis.

Jazmine’s updated comes days after the Casa Amor beauty revealed that she’d been rushed to hospital for emergency surgery, after becoming ‘really unwell’ with – what was at the time – a mystery illness
Alongside a concerning photograph of herself hooked up to a drip, she wrote: ‘Update for you all. I’ve taken really unwell so I’ll be off my phone and not shooting any content for a while till I’ve recovered from surgery. I’m in good hands though.’

Sepsis, known as the ‘silent killer’, strikes when an infection such as blood poisoning sparks a violent immune response in which the body attacks its own organs.
It is a potentially life-threatening condition, triggered by an infection or injury. Around 245,000 people develop sepsis in the UK each year and 52,000 die, according to the UK Sepsis Trust.
Instead of attacking the invading bug, the body turns on itself, shutting down vital organs.
If caught early enough, it’s easily treated with intravenous antibiotics and fluids, but these must be given as soon as sepsis is suspected – it strikes with frightening speed and, for every hour of delay, a patient’s chance of dying increases 8 per cent.
Sepsis is a leading cause of avoidable death killing 44,000 people each year
The early symptoms of sepsis can be easily confused with more mild conditions, meaning it can be difficult to diagnose.
A high temperature (fever), chills and shivering, a fast heartbeat and rapid breathing are also indicators.
A patient can rapidly deteriorate if sepsis is missed early on, so quick diagnosis and treatment is vital – yet this rarely happens.
In the early stages, sepsis can be mistaken for a chest infection, flu or upset stomach.
It is most common and dangerous in older adults, pregnant women, children younger than one, people with chronic conditions or those who have weakened immune systems.
The six signs of something potentially deadly can be identified by the acronym ‘SEPSIS’:
- Slurred speech or confusion
- Extreme shivering or muscle pain
- Passing no urine in a day
- Severe breathlessness
- Skin that’s mottled or discoloured
Anyone who develops any of these symptoms should seek medical help urgently — and ask doctors: ‘Could this be sepsis?’
