Former glamour model Katie Price has revealed she’s set to be in a wheelchair for the next six months after breaking her feet in an accident whilst on holiday in Turkey. Katie’s recovery could reportedly take up to two years and doctors don’t expect her to be walking again until next year.
There’s been more bad news for Pricey as she’s been told she may not walk for six months after breaking her feet jumping off a wall in Turkey. Katie was on holiday with two of her children - Junior and Princess - as well as new boyfriend Carl Woods when she suffered the nightmarish accident.
On her return to the UK, Katie was told by her West London surgeon that ‘she won’t be able to walk for six months’. A source told The Sun: ‘She needs major surgery on her feet ASAP as it's worse than anyone realised. The recovery could take up to two years. She won't even be walking around until well into 2021. She's really upset and can't believe it's this bad.’
Taking to Instagram, mum-of-five Katie described the news as ‘devastating’. She later put on a brave face, posting a picture of herself in a hot pink wheelchair to her feed and thanking her friends, family and fans for their support and kindness, saying: ‘with you I can get through this’.
According to a friend of Katie's, this setback may lead to the reality star moving in with boyfriend Carl Woods sooner than expected. The couple have been dating for less than two months but are reportedly making plans to get a new home together as soon as possible as they search for a wheelchair-accessible home.
One of Katie's friends revealed:
Katie’s realised she’ll need to move house as the one she’s currently in is not wheelchair-accessible. She was talking about moving in with Carl before the holiday to Turkey and being together 24/7 has only encouraged her to officially move in together. They are house hunting in Essex this week and can’t wait to live together. They’re extremely loved up and her kids have given him the thumbs up. She’s over the moon.
