Stacey Solomon has sent her support to Loose Women colleague Katie Price in a new interview.
The 29-year-old said everyone involved with the show “really cares” about Katie, 40, and hope she’s doing well following her decision to seek treatment in rehab.
Stacey told the new issue of Closer magazine: “We’re sending Katie our best wishes. We really care about her and hope that she’s well.”
Katie made the decision to seek help for post-traumatic stress disorder at the end of last month.
She’s had a highly-publicised and difficult few months that has included the breakdown of her third marriage and her mum’s terminal illness.
Loose Women previously spoke out to support Katie.
Ruth Langsford said on the ITV daytime programme: “Now you may have seen in the papers at the weekend that it’s been reported Katie Price, close friend of this show, obviously, has had a few personal problems over the last few months and has checked into rehab this weekend to be treated for post traumatic stress disorder.
“Now, obviously we don’t have all the details of what is going on but we would like to send Katie our very best wishes.”
Katie’s mum Amy confirmed her daughter would be entering rehab in September.
Amy told The Sun that although Katie can be her “own worst enemy”, she’s also been judged for years and subjected to “endless attacks” over everything she does.
Amy said: “She is constantly judged on her kids, her home, work, financial situation, the way she looks, how she dresses and what she does.
“No person can take this kind of pressure and not succumb to it.”
Katie’s had a difficult year with her beloved mum Amy being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, her marriage to third husband Kieran Hayler breaking down, and a romance with boyfriend Kris Boyson recently ending.
She’s also faced headlines about her financial situation, the state of her mansion and allegations of wild partying, including a video clip filmed during a hen do in Majorca showing her appearing to rap “I love coke”.
There were even claims Katie was at risk of losing her Loose Women panellist job over recent headlines, but a rep for the show has vehemently denied that.
A rep for Loose Women told ED!: “She hasn’t been on the show as a panellist since January. She has not been dropped. There are no current dates booked.”
The show previously revealed Katie was taking a break from the panel to work on other projects such as her reality show, My Crazy Life, which recently finished airing on Quest Red.
