Soap star Simon Gregson has praised the NHS after his wife received a life-saving operation over the weekend.

 

The Coronation Street actor took to social media where he thanked the NHS, who have taken such diligent care of his wife Emma.

 

He tweeted: "So three times the wonderful doctors of the NHS have saved my wife's life, even when so over-worked and at breaking point."

 

Emma, who has suffered a devastating 11 miscarriages in the past, went into further detail about her experience on Instagram.

 

"Last night I was rushed into Wythenshawe Hospital. Long story short, I needed a scan desperately late last night, and due to staff shortages no one was on call,” she wrote.

         

 

Emma stated that she owes her life to Dr. Arora, who rushed out to the hospital to carry out the scan in the early hours of the morning.

 

She then went on to share that Dr. Arora performed life-saving surgery on her on the same night.

 

The actress stated that she felt very lucky to be alive, “I was a couple of hours away from not being here to write this.”

 

In the personal Instagram post, she spoke about the staff who work tirelessly, expressing her hopes that the NHS cuts will be prevented, “Everyone here does the work of 10 people on their own! Stop the cuts.”

 

The couple, who got married back in 2010, believe that the NHS is the backbone of the country.

 

 

Simon and Emma have three sons - Alfie, Harry and Teddy - but lost Teddy’s twin back in the early stages of pregnancy.

 

Back in January, Simon revealed the couple had lost 11 babies throughout their relationship. He revealed the heart-breaking information when a troll sent abuse to his wife on Twitter.

 

He wrote, “We've lost 11 babies, [the] first being 21 weeks, four days. Maybe think or do your research before tweeting someone.”

 

In an interview with OK! magazine, Emma spoke about the traumatic loss of baby Teddy’s twin, “Sadly, only one of the twins survived. We’re very lucky to have this one.”

 

Simon, who has played Steve McDonald for 28 years, was in the middle of filming a harrowing storyline where his on-screen partner Michelle suffered a stillbirth in Coronation Street.
