Katie Price is to undergo major surgery later this week, after breaking both her feet and ankles in an accident on holiday.

Two weeks ago, the reality star revealed on her YouTube series that she had sustained serious injuries after jumping over a wall at an amusement park in Turkey, and wouldn’t be able to walk for three to six months.

At the time, she explained to her subscribers: “The hospital here wanted to operate, they wanted to put pins in and stuff, but because I’m away, I’d rather do it all when I get home.”

Katie’s representative has now confirmed that the operation will take place this week, now that she is back in the UK.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, they said: “Katie, I can confirm, will be undergoing major surgery this week to correct her injuries sustained on her recent holiday to Turkey.”

The news comes after Katie revealed she’d received an “absolutely devastating” update from doctors about her condition.

She told her Instagram followers: “Just finished my appointment with my consultant and surgeon about my feet. After further scans, the news is absolutely devastating. I’m gutted!”

According to The Mirror, Katie had found out that “her injuries are not as straight forward as doctors originally believed”, with her spokesperson telling the paper that she will be sharing more details on her YouTube channel.

More recently, Katie has been showing her fans how she’s adapted to her injuries, posting footage of herself on social media walking around her home on knee pads.
