A source told The Sun: ‘Katie’s doctors have warned her she must take her recovery seriously and it’s left her terrified. 

‘She’s prone to getting infections after operations, and her surgeon says she could lose a leg if her feet get infected.

‘She’ll have to be so, so careful – she’ll have medical professionals on call 24/7 – and change the dressings regularly. She’s got a long road ahead of her.’

When contacted by MailOnline, a representative for the star said : ‘Katie I can confirm will be undergoing major surgery this week to correct her injuries sustained on her recent holiday to Turkey.’ 

Katie recently explained she broke her ankles and feet during a ‘silly accident’ while on holiday with her beau and her children Princess, 13, and Junior, 15.

Taking to her YouTube channel, the star explained: ‘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 into and stuff. Because I’m away, I’d rather wait until I get home.’ 

She continued: ‘It’s the most painful thing ever. Like when I was trying to put the cast on, I was screaming into pain. They said I won’t be able to walk for three to six months.’  

Katie was taken to A&E for emergency surgery after doctors realised the extent of her horrific injuries.

A representative for Katie confirmed the plans, explaining: ‘As Katie is the temporarily wheelchair-bound, something no one could have foreseen, she has voiced the possibility of looking for a property that would work better for her wheelchair access and mobility scooter.

‘Carl as Katie’s carer would be living with her. There is the a lot to consider: Katie’s rehabilitation, the children, school, respective family, work commitments.

‘Essex would be a probable location – Katie however remains into her current rented property into Surrey.’
