Katie Price told she’ll be in a wheelchair for ANOTHER six months after operation on her ‘smashed up’ feet

KATIE Price has been told that she will be in a wheelchair for ANOTHER six months following an operation on her "smashed up" feet.

The 42-year-old star is not expected to walk again until April 2021, but determined Kate is seeing this as good news.

The former glamour model was left in agony when she broke both her feet after jumping off a wall while on holiday in Turkey this summer, leaving her wheelchair-bound.

Insiders have now revealed that it'll still be a while before Katie is back to normal – but she's optimistic about the future.

The source told The Sun Online: "This has been the most amazing news ever for Katie – but she’s nervous too, as the thought of being able to stand on her feet again is mind-boggling.

"She says she’s forgotten what it feels like, as her feet are literally held together with metal pins."


They added: "For Katie, it will feel like a toddler learning to take her first steps, but it’s much sooner than she thought as she was told by doctors that she could be in a wheelchair for a whole year after the operation."

Last month, Katie told us that she feared she'd die, lose both her legs, or never walk again after the horror fall.

Explaining how the accident happened, she shared: "We were just all mucking about. It was just a small wall which had flowers on top and I thought it was the same height the other side — but it was a 25ft drop.


"I landed on my feet and it was like cement. I tried to get up and I couldn’t. Then this pain just hit my legs and I’m screaming, ‘My legs! My legs!’"

The damage was so severe that it took an eight-hour op to fuse the bones in her feet back together.

Katie also admitted that she finds being pushed around in a wheelchair "humiliating", with her boyfriend Carl Woods acting as a dedicated carer to the star.

She shared: "I feel sorry for Carl because he’s such a 6ft 2in, handsome, gorgeous man, and I bet people look him and think, ‘Look at you having to push her around in a wheelchair’.

"I look at the reflection in the shop windows, it’s demoralising, the heartbreak."

Katie was on holiday with Carl when the accident happened, as well as he two children with ex-husband Peter Andre, 15-year-old Junior and 13-year-old Princess.

Katie is also mum to 18-year-old Harvey, seven-year-old Jett, and six-year-old Bunny.
