But luckily, the ambulance arrived promptly following Binky’s call to 999 – as the star sang the praises of the NHS service.
Writing a lengthy caption, Binky explained the situation to followers, writing: ‘Wolfie being rushed off in a ambulance after a bad reaction to what we think is the sesame in the hummus he had at lunch. All very quickly he started to get incredibly uncomfortable and was continuously rubbing his face and getting upset. He went bright red all over his face & hands and white little spots appeared shortly before his eye, lips & tongue started to swell.
‘We left the restaurant immediately & drove to the nearest pharmacist who said to call 999 … which we did and these incredible paramedics arrived within 4 minutes! All very scary, they said hes had a anaphylaxis shock and gave Wolfie a small adrenaline shot. They were worried about him becoming unable to breath so put the sirens on, drove pretty bloody quickly and we had our first experience in a ambulance!

Admitting she is now going to get an allergy test for Wolfie, Binky continued to explain the top notch service she received while in the hospital.
Continuing in the caption: ‘We got to a hospital in Gloucestershire 40 mins away who have also been amazing. They’ve kept us all calm, explained a huge amount & we have just been discharged after them keeping a close eye on him for 5 hours. We have left with two epi-pens & a whole lot of info. First thing on my to do list next week is get Wolfie to a skin / allergy specialist! WOAH – so many emotions again.
