Katie Price ‘heartbroken’ at not seeing terminally ill mum for ‘last’ Christmas
Katie Price has voiced her understandable heartbreak at not being able to see her terminally ill mum for what could be her "last" Christmas.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and new Tier 4 restrictions, the 42-year-old former Page 3 model, also known as Jordan, could not see her mum Amy, 64, yesterday.
The star, who has her own reality show which follows the lives of her and her five children, has said she is 'heartbroken' and confessed she has concerns about "how long she has with her".
Amy is tragically suffering from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis which is a terminal lung condition.
According to the NHS website, breathing becomes increasingly difficult as the disease progresses and the lungs become scarred – making Amy very vulnerable of Covid-19.
The life span is predicted to be able to live with it for two to three years. Amy was diagnosed in 2017.
Speaking on her heartbreak, Katie told The Sun of her concerns of how the pandemic may have ruined her 'last' Christmas with her beloved mum.

She told the publication: "I’m heartbroken. My mum has deteriorated a lot, she’s having to use oxygen and needs help breathing now, so it’s not good – but she’s still so determined.
"I thought it was going to be her last Christmas, I feared it, what I mean is it’s probably her last able Christmas where she’ll be able to be herself and have a laugh.
"We were never all going to be together as a family because of the rules, so our plan was to visit my sister Sophie on Christmas Eve and then go to my mum’s today for Christmas dinner."
The star went on to reveal they have been isolating since they got back from Turkey and her mum bought food which has now gone to waste.
Katie also told the paper how even they she really wants to see her mum she won't because of the rules.
The model said that unless her mum gets a miracle lung transplant she will be 'even weaker' next year.
She added: "It’s disappointing because I have all five of my kids this year and I would have loved to take them to mum to open their presents while she’s still got the energy."
