Jenny McCarthy has asked her followers to “say a prayer” for her after revealing that she is back in hospital.

The wedding photographer, who is married to Six O’Clock Show host Martin King, underwent an operation last week to have a tumour removed from her brain.

And while the procedure went well, Jenny took to Instagram on Monday morning to explain that she had to return to Beaumont Hospital because she was in a lot of pain.

“Can't believe I had to come back to Beaumont,” Jenny wrote alongside a crying emoji.

“Please say a prayer they can manage the pain for me,” she added.

She then thanked her followers for all the “lovely messages” she had received over the last few days.

Last week, Jenny shared the good news that the surgery had been a success.

“So...surgery went well and I'm back out and able to text. Out of high dependency and I am absolutely delighted with that,” she told her followers.

“I thought I’d never see this day. I’m on the other side of surgery and it’s just great.

“A brain tumour was removed and to Professor Ciarán Bolger’s knowledge, he seems to have taken it all. I am so grateful to have a wonderful surgeon and incredible hospital staff.

“Thank you too every single one of you for saying prayers and lighting candles.

“To my husband and family and the PHOTOSBYJEN team (Jen, Matthew & Amy). I’m in hospital until Sat/Sun. chat very soon.”

She later posted a selfie with her presenter husband after she had been discharged from hospital.

She wrote: “And just like that, Professor Ciarán Bolger decided to let me home to relax. I’ve never been so grateful, grateful to have the last week behind me.

“It looks great, just one more little test to come back. But for now it’s time to chill out in the couch and start the road to getting Jenny back to where she actually belongs.”
