Dancing On Ice's Ben Hanlin opens up about his daughter's terrifying battle ...

Ben Hanlin has shared the dread he felt as his baby daughter, Delilah, fought for her life against sepsis.

The Dancing On Ice star, 33, told Loose Women how he rushed home to find the seven-month-old's hands and feet going blue as an ambulance arrived to take her to hospital.

After becoming stable following a two-hour scare, and later being released, Ben wanted to speak out and urge other parents to act quickly if they suspect their child may have the infection.

'I was about to go on stage, I got a phone call from my wife, Briony, saying she had called an ambulance. I was like, "Right, I'm coming home",' the magician said on the programme.

'They [paramedics] took one look at her, with her mottled skin and 103-degree temperature. She was struggling to breathe, her hands and feet were turning blue.

'They said, "We've got to go". They didn't mess about.'

Praising the doctors, he continued: 'They gave her amazing attention. 'Within two hours they got her stable, it was a long two hours.

'We were very, very, very lucky. We were one of the lucky ones and got her there [to hospital] quickly.
