‘It has been such a stressful time but she knows her family are always with her. We all love her so much, mother and daughter love is so strong!’

Lauren was admitted to hospital last month before having her emergency brain surgery.

Earlier this month, she took to her social media pages to tell fans he had nearly died as a result of her illness. 

The TV personality took to her Instagram stories to tell her followers: ‘Hello my stars. Well I’m still in hospital. 

‘Nearly dying makes you appreciate every moment. So enjoy the sunshine and know that I love you. Light, love and peace.’ 

She then shared a picture of one of her self-portraits which she sells on her website and a couple of the get well soon cards she has received. 

The reassuring post came a day after Lauren’s mother Katy issued a plea for help over Lauren’s ‘incredibly scary’ blackouts and headaches.

Lauren was first admitted into hospital for the procedure on April 14, with the cause unknown.

Katy has been giving updates on her daughter’s condition, and has now asked for help as the NHS struggle to find answers after saving her life. 

Posting an update to Lauren’s Twitter, her mum wrote: ‘Please help: Lauren has had a number of blackouts after which the right side of her face droops.

‘This is incredibly scary for Lauren and us. She also has a consistent headache. Drs haven’t been able to explain what is causing these.’

Katy continued: ‘Have you or someone you know been through this? Any ideas or help you could give will be so helpful.

‘The NHS saved Lauren but they can’t find any answers for this and it is so scary when it happens.

‘It happened again yesterday. Please help find out what’s causing these!’ 

Last month, Katy shared that Lauren was rushed to intensive care after catching infections before being moved back to neurology.

In the update, shared to Lauren’s official Twitter account at the time, Katy said Lauren was ‘awake and talking’ and urged people to ‘pray for her’.

She shared: ‘Lauren was moved to ICU as she caught Covid as well as 2 infections causing her breathing issues.

‘She is awake and talking again back in Neurology. I want to say thank you again to all the amazing staff at Heath Hospital. She still has a way to go but she is strong. Pray for her.’

Lauren found fame as a precocious 12-year-old antiques expert called James, who appeared on the Antiques Roadshow and Wogan, before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2003.

The latest health update comes a week after Katy told fans that Lauren had been moved back to recovery, where she was ‘under close watch’. 

Katy had earlier shared that Lauren ‘would have died’ had she not had the surgery and explained how doctors had to perform Lauren’s ‘worst nightmare’ by shaving her hair off.

Laying in hospital with an art book, the TV star still managed to flash a smile for the picture while bandaged up.

Many fans rallied to offer their words of support to Lauren, as they wished her a speedy recovery in the replies.
