Katie Price will struggle to walk ‘forever’ after breaking both feet in Turkey

Katie Price has revealed she will be effected for the rest of life by the agonising breaks she sustained to both her feet.

The former glamour model had been making progress in her recovery after smashing bones in both her heels in a horror fall in Turkey last year, however she was forced back into moon boots earlier this month by concerned doctors.

Giving an update on her condition during an appearance on Jeremy Vine’s show today, Katie said: “It’s life-changing injuries which I’ve had. I struggled to walk. It will be like it forever.

“I smashed my feet to bits. I’ve got screws in them now and metal plates. What’s wrong with mummy’s feet Harv?”

“Get well soon mummy, “Harvey replied as he joined her on the live link.

Katie, who was promoting her new documentary with Harvey, went on: “So I’m only on my feet for about 20 minutes a day and that’s me done for the day.

“It is life changing and it was during the documentary that if happened, so then I needed a carer as well as being the carer. You just couldn’t make it up.”

Katie had been holidaying in Turkey with her boyfriend Carl Woods and children Princess and Junior when she suffered the accident at a theme park.

Explaining what happened, Katie told the host: “Literally I jumped a small wall when we were all mucking about and I didn’t realise it was a 20-foot drop the other side.”

Katie came crashing down on both feet and had to be rushed to hospital.

She has since continued her treatment since returning to the UK – and has been visiting the same hospital Harvey often attends appointents.

The mother and son appeared on Jeremy Vine on Thursday to discuss Katie’s decision to move Harvey into a residential college.

Mother-of-five Katie, 42, has said she wants her eldest child to live a more independent life now that he has turned 18.

Harvey was born with Prader-Willi syndrome and is also autistic and partially blind.

Last year, Harvey started at a residential school for five days a week, returning home at weekends.

He moved back to Katie’s rented Surrey family home in March at the start of the coronavirus pandemic as he was considered ‘high risk.’

If his move to the National Star college is successful, Harvey will be supported by trained staff there who will help live semi-independently – with his own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Katie previously revealed she spent six months researching different colleges in order to find the best fit for Harvey.

The process was captured on camera for a new BBC documentary which sees Katie give an insight into life as single parent to a disabled child who is approaching adulthood.

In a newly released trailer for the one-off show, Katie is seen speaking to the founder of the UK Autism Charity, Anna Kennedy, who warns her that if the placement wasn’t right for Harvey it could impact his mental health and wellbeing.

“I’ve got to let Harvey have the best shot at life,” Katie told the camera.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me is confirmed to air from January 25 and will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
