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.
