Jamie Laing has opened up on the terrifying ordeal he faced when his fiancée Sophie Habboo “turned blue and almost died”.
The Made in Chelsea star recalled the incident occurred only a few hours after he proposed to Sophie and asked her to marry him, which he first spoke about earlier this week.
Jamie, 33, said he was left “screaming for help” and panicking over what to do before he realised he needed to race his 28 year old girlfriend to the hospital.
Things took a turn when Sophie started being sick repeatedly.
After numerous times throwing up, the star’s skin then started changing colour.
Speaking on Private Parts podcast, Jamie began: “I got engaged and my fiancée nearly died, Sophie came in screaming.
“We spend the day together and have a great day together and we go for lunch the next day on Sunday with Sophie’s sister and boyfriend Tom.
“It’s been wild this whole weekend, champagne, everything. We had a bottle of champagne and Sophie ordered oysters. We get a bit drunk and go to bed that night and we wake up in the morning and I start doing this podcast.
“When I woke up at 5am in the morning, Sophie was throwing up in the loo and I thought maybe she’s got food poisoning.
“We drank a lot but not extortionate,” Jamie insisted, as he went on to detail how much worse things got. “She then gets back into bed with me and she falls asleep and we get up around 7.15am, Sophie then starts puking on my shoulder.”
“I clear her up and get her to the bathroom, we go downstairs and her lips are looking a little bit blue.”
The star then remembered how half-way through the podcast Sophie’s lips and fingers turned completely blue, leaving him “scared”.
“I ran her to the hospital, the hospital was rammed full of people and I sat her down and her fingers and lips were going bluer and bluer,” the former Strictly Come Dancing star said. "I was trying to get people’s attention to look after her and they said you just have to wait, but she was turning blue.
“She was crying tears into her face mask. I’ve never had fear like that in my life ever. We checked her oxygen levels and it was really low.”
Jamie explained that thankfully once Sophie was put on oxygen and a drip the nightmare started to get better, but it still took doctors seven hours to raise her oxygen to an acceptable level.
Jamie said it was the “most intense four days” he’s ever experienced in his “entire life".
“She was turning blue, blue lips and fingers. I was screaming in there asking if anyone could help us," the star added.
