"A simple procedure led to a bit of a medical emergency..."
Katie Price has been noticeably absent from Loose Women for a while now, but she reappeared on the chat show today to discuss her recent botched cosmetic surgery.
In a preview for today’s show, host Andrea McLean told This Morning, “We haven’t seen her for a few weeks, but our Katie is back with us this morning. You’re going to be hearing how a simple procedure led to a bit of a medical emergency, didn’t it? Not been very well.”
Meanwhile, Katie stood next to her with a visibly swollen face, nodding silently to the camera.
The former glamour model later revealed on the show that it’s all down to a dental procedure. She had teeth removed to allow for a new set of veneers.
“My veneers were 10-years-old so I needed new ones. I went backwards and forwards from Turkey to sort them out. Last week I was due on Loose Women, they gave me all these antibiotics. On the way I felt really ill. I realised I hadn’t read the box. I’m allergic to penicillin so I was really ill for days after that.”
Fans have been tweeting their concern for the star, saying, “Can we all just take a minute and ask WHAT is going on with Katie Price’s face?” and “Absolutely shocked at Katie Price’s appearance! She’s gone too far with her plastic surgery for sure.”
Loose women airs on ITV, weekdays at 12:30pm.
