Emmerdale star Samantha Giles has been rushed to hospital with a mystery illness.

The 50-year-old actress, who plays Bernice Blackstock in the ITV soap, has taken to Twitter to thank NHS staff for looking after her.

She updated fans on her health scare on Twitter on Saturday.

Samantha penned in view of her 60,000 followers: "Huge thank you to all the wonderfully caring staff at @LiverpoolWomens for looking after me today. #NHS. I’m fine and I’ll be home soon."

The soap legend was inundated with messages from concerned fans.

One person penned: "I hope you are ok. Sending healing thoughts."

A second person wrote: "Speedy recovery, Samantha."

Another added: "Bless you Sam, I hope you're feeling comfortable and better soon xx"

A fourth social media user said: "Dearest Sam..may you rest up nicely, be well looked after and home before you know it xxx"

It comes after Samantha claimed she met her husband at a fairground "in a past life".

She believes that she met her hubby Sean Pritchard at a festival, where she the male and he was the female.

The TV star reckons that her former self looked uncannily like her curly-haired husband in real life, and that his past persona looked like how she does now.

Samantha calls herself a white witch and follows the Pagan religion of Wicca.

She has also previously confirmed that she thinks the pair met after she casted a "love spell" in an attempt to find a partner.

The star spoke about the spell last year: "I met him three months after the spell, it’s about things being aligned.

"Sometimes people say to me, 'I put this thought out there and it didn’t work,' but sometimes things aren’t in the right place so you have to let them go until it’s time."

The husband and wife tied the knot in 2010 and credits their chance encounter to her Wiccan rituals.

Samantha spoke on the Wonderbirds YouTube show about her thoughts: "It was weird really because I was this man and I’d gone to work on this fairground.

"The weird thing is, it was before I’d met my husband, but I looked like my husband."

"I had black curly hair and the woman that I was marrying looked like me, now.

"When I met my husband I had this feeling of meeting him when I saw him, 'I know you, I’ve met you before,' so it was almost as if we’d looked like each other in another life."

Samantha has played Bernice in Emmerdale on and off since 1998.

She has also appeared in Doctors, Hollyoaks and Where the Heart Is.

Emmerdale airs weeknights on ITV at 7.30pm
