Kym Marsh, 42, revealed she recently went to have a vitamin drip with her boyfriend Scott Ratcliffe after not feeling herself.
The Coronation Street actress explained she is on medication for hiatus hernia, which gives her bad heartburn so decided to get a boost.
“I’ve been working quite hard and feeling quite sluggish, so I decided to do something for myself,” she said in her latest OK! Magazine column.
“Scott and I went to REVIV for a vitamin drip.”
She continued: “I’m on medication for hiatus hernia, which means part of my stomach is protruding into my oesophagus which gives me heartburn, so I take medication called lansoprazole.
“The doctor told me that if you’ve been taking it for a while it affects your body’s ability to absorb vitamin B12, which is important for the immune system.”
Kym admitted the drop gave her a “much-needed energy” boost as she said she doesn’t like needles.
Also in her column, Kym gave her view on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby’s name.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex called their title tot, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on May 6.
Kym admitted she “loves” the name, which was her son’s name who was born stillborn back n 2009.
“Meghan and Harry chose the name Archie, and I love it,” she wrote in her column for the publication,
“My son, who was stillborn in 2009, was called Archie too, so obviously I’m biased but I think it’s a wonderful choice.
“It’s a good solid name that you can’t go far wrong with,” Kym added.
“I wasn’t surprised that they didn’t go for something traditional, as they are known to bend the rules.
“They do things their own way, and it makes them more accessible,” the Coronation Street star said.
Meanwhile, Kym has had a new arrival in the family herself as her daughter Emilie gave birth to a baby boy just days before the royal baby was born.
Kym announced the exciting news on her Instagram page as she shared an image of the newborn’s tiny hand.
She captioned the post: “Last night was a night I will never forget. I became a ‘Loli’ for the first time!!!
“My beautiful daughter was an absolute warrior and her partner and I were the best birthing team we could be!!!”
