What happened to Katie Price and her feet?

The Sun reports that she went to her local hospital in Epsom, Surrey.

However, she was swiftly transferred to a larger London hospital after doctors feared she had an infection.

A source told the paper: “Katie was in excruciating agony all night, couldn’t eat, couldn’t focus and nothing was working.

“Painkillers weren’t touching it so pals rushed her to A&E in Epsom.

“Doctors decided to move her to the Chelsea and Westminster hospital for further treatment but the fear is she could have an infection.”

Katie Price’s representative confirmed the reports.

On Friday, Katie had shared a video on Instagram detailing how much in pain she was in.

Katie replied: “Has mummy been crying? It is only because it hurts mummy. Doesn’t it?”

She also shared on her Instagram Stories: “Struggling tonight to sleep again despite my feet repairing from my operation. No matter what I do and no matter what painkillers doctors have given me, I’m still in pain.”

Katie broke both of her feet while holidaying in Turkey with boyfriend Carl Woods and her children Junior, 15, and Princess, 13.

She says she landed “funny” after jumping off a wall while at the theme park The Land of Legends.

She underwent an op last Friday and shared her surgery journey via her official YouTube channel.

In a video a doctor warns her that she has “life-changing injuries”.

The former glamour model went on to tell the cameras that her feet were much more “mangled” and “smashed” than she originally thought.

She also said she’d been warned that she won’t be able to walk normally for up to two years.

She is now using a Swarovski-encrusted wheelchair to get around.

Her boyfriend, Carl, has been photographed diligently pushing her about, as well as lifting her in and out of cars.
