“Katie wants to thank everyone for their ongoing support and will be back when she feels ready.”

She broke both of her feet while on holiday in Turkey.

She’s since undergone six-hour surgery and has been ordered to rest for months as they heal.

On a recent YouTube video a doctor warned her that she has “life-changing” injuries.

She said it may take up to six months until she can walk again, and a total of two years until she is fully recovered.

Katie added from her hospital bed: “I’ve got these massive scars on my feet.

“Do I care? No, because now I can start walking again.”

A rep told The Daily Star Katie needs time to rest: “Katie has been through a lot over the past few weeks that would push anyone to their limit.

“She’s decided to take a step back and focus on herself for a bit – right now she’s burned out and needs much needed rest and recuperation.”

She is now getting around on a specially commissioned bright prink Swarovski encrusted wheelchair.
