Mackinlay, who will return to public life on Wednesday for the first time since the ordeal, was taken to hospital last September and diagnosed with sepsis, a life-threatening reaction to an infection that occurs when the immune system overreacts and starts to damage the body’s own tissues and organs.

The MP for South Thanet recorded a video from his hospital bed and said: “The grim reaper has let me survive, but he’s taken his payment in four of my limbs,” the Daily Telegraph reported.

He told the newspaper he went into septic shock, which resulted in kidney and liver failure, blood clots forming and his limbs turning black.

On Wednesday, he will make his first trip to Westminster for prime minister’s questions with his wife, Kati, and four-year-old daughter watching from the public gallery.

Mackinlay told the BBC: “When children come to parliament’s fantastic education centre I want them to be pulling their parents’ jacket or skirts or their teacher and saying: ‘I want to see the bionic MP today’.”
