Strictly’s Greg Rutherford rushed to hospital after he’s left ‘clawing at his skin and screaming’

Strictly Come Dancing star Greg Rutherford has been rushed to the hospital after a suspected ‘allergic’ reaction that left him ‘screaming and clawing at his skin.'

The 36-year-old track and field star was driven to the hospital by his worried fiancée Susie Verrill, after she claimed he faced a 40-minute wait for an ambulance.

The blogger took to Instagram to share Greg’s terrifying health ordeal, telling her followers how she was concerned he would ‘stop breathing.’

Once at the hospital, Greg, who shares three children with Susie whom he has been with since 2012, was ‘pumped full of steroids and antihistamines.’

Posting an image of the athlete recovering in a hospital bed, Susie wrote: “'Had quite l 'Was enjoying a lovely roast at a friends' house with the kids,

"Greg was at home because he'd been for a run and he text to say he was having an allergic reaction to something and felt itchy."

She continued: “I didn't think much of it until he rang me screaming two minutes later. And I mean SCREAMING.

"He shouted, 'YOU NEED TO GET HERE NOW' and so I drove back to our house while calling an ambulance, terrified I was about to get home and find him not breathing. 999 said it would take 40 minutes, but that's another issue to discuss for another day.”

Susie added that Greg then started acting strange and ‘delirious,’ penning: “Anyway, I ran in the house found Greg there again, screaming. Acting like one of those people you see in videos where they've taken bath salts… He was clawing at his skin and just screaming. Repeatedly.

"He ran to our car and while I rang 999 again to say I'd have to take him, we had to run every red light and I had to focus on not crashing while he screamed and tried to grab the wheel…

“He was delirious, and I looked like I was kidnapping him. I was on the phone to the 999 call handler, and the poor girl just kept saying, 'OK, yeah, he doesn't sound good, please be safe but hurry.'

"I threw him out at A&E, parked, and when I got there, they told me they'd sent him through to Resus – I think mainly because he was a 6ft 3 bloke acting like a psychopath and didn't want to scare anyone.”

Thankfully, Susie revealed that Gregor was then quickly treated and started to feel better, but doctors still can’t say for sure what happened to him.

“They pumped him full of steroids and antihistamines, and it seemed to work pretty much immediately,” she explained.

“Thankfully, by the time I got there, he'd stopped screaming and raking himself. The hospital recommended we get him tested, but said it could have also been viral. I appreciate rashes can appear with a viral illness… But his body went mad.

"The doctor who suggested the viral thing hadn't seen how Greg had been on arrival. I can't explain how much pain he was in. This is a bloke who shrugs off a grumbling appendix.”

She then pleaded with others to help get to the bottom of what happened to the Strictly performer, adding: “If you have experienced similar in an allergy way, please let me know.”
