Manchester Evening News - - THE DIARY -

FOR­MER foot­baller Ash­ley Ward’s ho­tel room was trans­formed into a hospital after he fell ill on hol­i­day.

Ash­ley, who has played for teams in­clud­ing Manch­ester City and Black­burn Rovers, was put on drip and given in­tra­venous an­tibi­otics after be­ing stricken with a chest in­fec­tion, ton­sil­li­tis and a fever in Dubai.

His re­al­ity TV star wife Dawn filmed her poorly hus­band sit­ting up in bed in their room on the drip wear­ing a per­son­alised dress­ing gown.

She said in a clip posted on her Instagram: “Day one and we’ve got a hospital in our room.”

Dawn later shared an­other video on her Instagram sto­ries of Ash­ley up and about and said: “He fi­nally made it out, sol­dier he is.”

The Wards went through a har­row­ing or­deal just be­fore Christ­mas when their 12-year-old daugh­ter Char­lie was hit by a car in Wilm­slow town cen­tre.
