Actress Maria Bello was hospitalised last year (13) after contracting a parasitic infection in Haiti.

The Coyote Ugly star was taking part in a charity mission when she was left bedridden for months.

She says, "I had a parasite last summer right in my bum... I work in Haiti and Africa and something just built up after all those years... all these parasites."

In a post on her page last summer (13), the actress, who is penning a memoir after landing a publishing deal with HarperCollins, wrote, "I had a dreadful parasite from all my travels, and I am so very grateful to all at St Johns Hospital, (and other fabulous doctors I am fortunate to know) as well as beloved family and friends who helped me get over this. Health is truly our greatest gift. Stay healthy all."
