Last night, Charlie shared a selfie from his sick bed and, judging by the medical tape and cotton wool on his arm, it appears he has had a blood test.

Alongside the photograph, Charlie told his Twitter followers: "#Bronchitis #Selfie in #Marbs #Towim."

Charlie's cousin and former TOWIE co-star, Frankie Essex, was quick to send get well wishes from back in the UK. She said: "Oh Char what a mare!! Hope you're okay babe x."

Replying to her message, Charlie tweeted back: "I know.. Hopefully get better before we come back!"

Charlie and his TOWIE co-stars, including his girlfriend Ferne McCann, touched down in Marbella last Saturday (7 June) and have been busy filming for the new series.

Earlier this week, Charlie and Ferne - who have recently reunited - were seen sharing a romantic moment as they relaxed together in the Spanish sunshine.

Get well soon, Charlie!
