Jodie Marsh’s boyfriend Billy Collins-Nuttal has returned from the hospital after skin on his leg “turned to rock.”
The injury occurred as a result of Billy accidentally falling asleep with an ice pack pressed against a pulled muscle.
The 42 year old glamour model turned bodybuilder logged the events on Instagram, explaining that Billy sustained the injury on the football pitch.
Alongside a video of her tapping the damaged skin, Jodie wrote: “SOUND ON!!!!! So Billy pulled a muscle playing football and last night he fell asleep with an ice pack on his leg. His skin turned to rock. Listen to the sound it makes when I tap it with my nails. To see what it looks like now, watch my stories on here !!!!!”

In an update, Jodie showed how the hard skin had formed blisters which she described as looking like “a bouncy castle for ants.”
On Wednesday night, Jodie updated her 442,000 followers with news that the pair had just returned from Harlow Princess Alexandra hospital A&E.
She wrote: “Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to Dianne who was amazing and kind and made Billy feel completely at ease (he’s terrified of hospitals). Thank you Dianne – you were amazing. And secondly I want to say how amazing all of our NHS are.
Jodie went on to praise the hospital’s reception staff who dealt with “rude” and “demanding” patients for “hours.”
She added that “Billy has had all the skin removed and is in pain but he’s ok. He will never again use an ice pack NHS you are wonderful and Dianne we love you.”
Jodie posted an update on Thursday morning which read: “Long hospital wait last night. Poor Billy!! He’s ok today. Just resting his leg. No more ice packs for him.”
