TOWIE’s Georgia Kousoulou was forced to call emergency services last night after her baby son Brody suffered the “highest temp he’s ever had.”
The reality TV star, 31, took to Instagram to share her nightmare with followers saying she turned to the NHS helpline 111 for advice after her one year old became ill.
Georgia, who shares Brody with fiance Tommy Mallett, told her 1.5 million followers: “Very tired today.
“Being a mumma when your baby isn’t well has to be one of the hardest things .. you just feel useless & it’s so hard to watch them in pain.
“It’s also so hard to know the right thing to do .. so last night we called 111 for advice as brodys temp was higher than it had been .. thankfully they said he was ok, & said he was ok at home ..
“calpol is our best friend right now ( as you can see from his vest) so lots of rest & cuddles today!!”

Her famous friends quickly shared messages of support, with fellow mum Chloe Sims writing: “Awww, bless you both, hope he feels better today”.
And Lydia Bright penned “Love you”.
It comes after brave Georgia revealed she secretly battled post-natal depression.
She said she struggled with her mental health after she didn’t feel an immediate ‘uncontrollable’ love for her newborn.
Speaking to OK!, she said: “I didn’t get that overwhelming feeling of love from the moment I first held him that everyone speaks about. I was looking at this baby like, ‘Is this mine?’ It took me a while.
“It was love at first sight visually, but emotionally I didn’t have that uncontrollable love and when I didn’t get it straight away it really stressed me out. It upset me for ages and sent me into a dark place.”

Her fiancé Tommy noticed things weren’t right and staged an intervention with both of their mums and their midwife.
The emotional meeting came as a relief to Georgia as she finally shared her feelings and felt the burden fall from her shoulders.
She said: “I think it’s so important for women not to say to other women that the minute you hold your baby you’re going to get this feeling you’ve never felt before.
“Actually, you don’t always feel that way and if you don’t, that’s OK. It takes time. We don’t know these little humans that we’ve just been given.”
