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.
