Reality TV star Kate Ferdinand was forced to abandon a wedding and rush to her father’s bedside after he suffered a dramatic health scare.

The stunning wife of footie ace Rio Ferdinand is said to have left her children at a closed friends wedding so she could be with her dad after an emergency call sent him to hospital.

Her electrician father Phil, 61, who is understood to be making a full recovery, has had a rocky relationship with his daughter since she was just a child.

Kate has admitted she was "very upset" when she wasn't invited to one of her dad's weddings at the tender age of nine.

Essex native Phil split from her mother Jacqueline when she was three.

The blonde beauty is now stepmother to Rio's three children after their mother Rebecca lost her battle to cancer in May 2015.

Essex native Phil has defended his relationship with his daughter and insisted he wasn't allowed to invite Kate to one of his weddings, which took place nearly two decades ago.

The pair reconnected after Phil watched a 2018 TV interview, where she discussed the challenge of becoming a step-mother, with Kate later inviting them to the couple's London mansion.

The pair ultimately reconnected and phil walked his daughter down the aisle during her wedding to Manchester United and England legend Rio in Turkey in 2019.

The former TOWIE star was due to attend the wedding of her housekeeper's son Dean Hughes at Heston House in Cheshire on Wednesday last week.

But she left the kids – including bridesmaid Tia Ferdinand – in the capable hands of her child minder to be by her dad’s side.

Kate has since jetted off on a luxury getaway to Dubai with hubby Rio, where she flaunted her incredible bikini body

The new mum, who welcomed baby son Cree nine months ago, sat by the pool in the skimpy two-piece as she showed off her post-baby body.

The star recently opened up on Instagram about the birth of her son, telling fans: “After giving birth I truly never thought I would feel myself again, and honestly everything is a bit more wobbly than before.

"But I feel so much happier, I am in awe of the fact I have produced my beautiful baby boy and super proud of the woman I have become."
