Katie Price has revealed that she can never run again and will be in pain for the rest of her life after breaking both feet in a horrific fall.
In August last year the former glamour model, who went to Turkey with her boyfriend Carl Woods and her children Junior and Princess, ‘fell funny on her ankles’ after misjudging the height of a wall – which was over 20ft.
Speaking to the Loose Women panel on Friday’s show, Katie recalled the nasty accident, which has left her in a wheelchair and unable to walk properly.
‘I had a lot of criticism from people saying, “Oh you haven’t really broken them because if you had you wouldn’t be out and about”,’ Katie said via video link.
‘You girls know me, I am determined, I am not just going to sit there, you have to get on with life.
‘They said it would take 18 months before I could walk again, I have started to walk a bit now, it has been about eight months.’
‘I am now regarded disabled, I can get a blue badge,’ she added. ‘I can only be on my feet for about 20 minutes a day, I will never be able to run again.
‘So all those marathons that I would like to have done, I am going to have to do bikes. I am trying to find a positive with everything. I can still ride my horses.’
Speaking about what the future holds for Katie after the incident, she continued: ‘They (the doctors) said for life I will be in pain, I will get arthritis, I don’t want to rely on painkillers, that’s not me. It is absolutely life-changing.
‘They say if it was on my back it would have been paralysing and if it was on my head, I would have been dead.’
It comes after the mum-of-five revealed that she ‘waddles like a duck’ because of her injury.
The model, who feared she wouldn’t be able to walk again after the fall, went on to add that she is seeking ‘legal advice’.
She explained that she ‘can’t get rid of the constant pain’ and once she sits down she can’t get up again because of how much it hurts.
Katie went on to discuss with the Loose Women ladies, the success of her latest documentary titled Katie Price: Harvey and Me.
The hour-long film followed the model and Harvey, 18, on their journey to find him a residential college
Viewers branded Katie an ‘exceptional mum’ after watching the one-off special, which aired last month.
‘It’s actually been amazing,’ Katie continued.
‘I think because people have judged me as a person, but in the documentary, it doesn’t matter what job I do that’s strict fact.
‘It goes to show the connection we have and how hard it is. Hopefully, it was educational to people that I am a real person and I am just a mum that has a child with all these complex needs.’
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
