The surgery sounds very gruesome indeed

Katie Price has arrived at hospital to receive surgery on her broken feet.

Today she was spotted arriving at a London hospital in her bedazzled casts.

Her new boyfriend, Carl Woods, lifted her out of the vehicle and into a wheelchair.

The rep said: “Katie is terrified – the operation will take five hours and have two highly skilled surgeons working on her at the same time.

“They’ll slice open her heels and put metal pins in her feet. Everyone’s telling Katie she’s in good hands, but she’s still scared.”

Katie said she was advised to have the surgery immediately in Turkey, but she held off.

Instead she stayed in Turkey a further week to have her veneers replaced.

She explained her injury on her official YouTube channel: “Silly little accident. I was running, jumped over a wall because it was a little shortcut.

“And I didn’t really judge the height. I fell funny on my ankles.

Prone to infections, she was warned that she could lose a leg if she doesn’t maintain proper aftercare.

Katie’s rep confirmed to Entertainment Daily: “Katie has been advised prior to her surgical procedure of the risks attached, Katie is in the very best of expert hands and risk is minimal.”

Some of Katie’s fans initially wondered if her injuries weren’t as serious as she claimed.

She shared videos of her crawling across the floor with knee pads.

And also said she had broken her feet, and then her legs.

However, Katie vehemently hit back at her critics, and says she has suffered “life changing injuries”.

Addressing her some 2.3 million Instagram followers she wrote: “My new colourful casts.

“Despite people not believing I’ve really broken my feet.

“I really have life changing injuries.”
