Katie Price was brought out to dinner after being left devastated by a two-hour visit to a specialist clinic about her broken feet.

The 42-year-old has arrived back in the UK after her horror accident on holiday in Turkey, when she fractured both heels while taking a shortcut in a theme park.

About wheelchair
A wheelchair is a chair with wheels, used when walking is difficult or impossible due to illness, injury, old age related problems, or disability. These can includes spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, Hemiplegia, and quadriplegia), broken leg(s), cerebral palsy, brain injury, Osteogenesis imperfecta a.k.a. brittle bones, motor neurone diseases (MND), multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular dystrophy (MD), Spina bifida, and more. Wheelchairs come in a wide variety of formats to meet the specific needs of their users. They may include specialized seating adaptions, individualized controls, and may be specific to particular activities, as seen with sports wheelchairs and beach wheelchairs. The most widely recognized distinction is between powered wheelchairs, where propulsion is provided by batteries and electric motors, and manually propelled wheelchairs, where the propulsive force is provided either by the wheelchair user/occupant pushing the wheelchair by hand (“self-propelled”), by an attendant pushing from the rear using handle(s), or by an attendant pushing from the side use a handle attachment.

On her Instagram story yesterday, Pricey filmed herself in a car from a concierge service with her neighbour Jo Mantell, and told fans: ‘Here I am in the car with Jo and Riz, taking me to my appointment to see the surgeon. I’m really scared. I just don’t want it to hurt.’

Katie, dressed in a short pink dress and a silver sequinned face mask, was lifted out of her car and placed in a wheelchair by one of the clinic’s staff.

The chair was then lifted up the stairs, with Katie sporting a pained expression as she travelled backwards up the steps.

When the mother-of-five emerged two hours later, she had been fitted with special plastic boots, replacing the bandages that had encased her legs when she entered the building.

And it seems Katie needed cheering up after the consultation, as her friends took her to Japanese restaurant Kurobuta for a meal.

Katie looked disheartened as her friends wheeled her out of the restaurant, but did seem to have acquired a new hot pink wheelchair to help her get around. 

The reality star signalled that her injuries were more serious than she first realised as she posted to her Instagram stories after her appointment.

Katie wrote: ‘Just finished my appointment with my consultant and surgeon about my feet. After further scans, the news is absolutely devastating…

‘I’m gutted!’

It is believed that Katie will go into further details on her scan results on her YouTube channel.

The former glamour model decided to hold off on surgery until she returned from Turkey, after taking a serious fall on a family day out at a theme park with boyfriend Carl Woods and her children Princess, 13, and Junior, 15. 

She explained on her YouTube channel: ‘Silly me, at my age, should calm things down. Basically, silly little accident. I was running and jumped over a wall, as it was a little shortcut, and didn’t really judge the height. 

‘I just sort of fell funny on my ankles and I fractured the hairline on my heels and stuff. The hospital here wanted to operate and wanted to put pins in and stuff. Because I’m away, I’d rather wait until I get home.’

Katie said that doctors told her she will not be able to walk for three to six months – with her daughter Princess claiming that she may not even walk for a year.

The star appealed to fans to source a wheelchair or a mobility scooter for her to get around with back in England, explaining: ‘It looks like now my life has to change for the next few months because I can’t walk. 

‘I’m trying to find a mobility scooter and a wheelchair that I can use because I can’t go on crutches because I can’t put any pressure on my feet.

‘[It’s] something that I wouldn’t of chose to do, but it’s happened and now I have to deal with it. I’m gonna have to move house, I can’t live like this on my own.’

It’s the latest incident in a rough few months for Katie, after her son Harvey, 18, was admitted to intensive care with breathing difficulties.

The star then dealt with the death of her daughter Princess’s dog, after the pup suffocated in the mechanism of an electric chair, and later called the police over a suspected break-in at her Sussex mansion. 

Metro.co.uk has contacted Katie’s rep for further comment on her injuries.
