Katie Price broke down on Loose Women on Tuesday afternoon after she was talking about her dying mum has she has the same condition as Keith Chegwin has who passed away on Monday.
Katie started talking on the show after got more and more emotional causing Ruth Langsford to take her off the set and go backstage to calm down.
“IPA [idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis] isn’t well known and there should be more awareness because once you’re diagnosed, it’s too late. It’s an incurable lung disease – no one knows how you get it…hang on.”
“Keith got in touch and we’d been speaking to him a lot and he was trying to help my mum. I knew all along about Keith but I never said it to anyone and I can’t believe that within six months he’s gone.”
She then continued to say:
“She’s getting worse, she’s having to sell her house now because she can’t get up…”
“I knew I should have done [the show].”
“Yeah my mum had a cough for about five years, they thought it was asthma, then a few months ago she had a cold…how can my mum die?“
It might be my last Christmas with her.
So sad she did well to get that far into the show.
