Katie Price revealed she is having to crawl around her home on her knees after breaking both of her feet during a freak accident while on holiday in Turkey.

The former glamour model, 42, posed for a picture wearing her supportive boots and knee pads days on Instagram, after arriving home from the trip on Saturday.

Talking to the camera, Katie said: ‘So guys this is my new form of walking around the house, because obviously my ankles are completely broken and Carl found these knee pads for me so I can still get about and up the stairs.’

On Friday, Katie was told that her recovery could take up to two years following a freak accident which broke both of her feet while on holiday in Turkey.

Katie revealed she had received some ‘devastating news’, amid claims that she won’t be able to walk for six months.

However it has now been reported that a full recovery may apparently not be likely for the mother-of-five for another two years, a source told the Sun.

The insider revealed: ‘The recovery could take up to two years. She won’t even be walking around until well into 2021. She’s really upset and can’t believe it’s this bad.’

The reality star was pictured being wheeled into the Fortius clinic in West London for a consultation, and in an Instagram update revealed she’s ‘gutted’ by the prognosis. 

In the post she shared with fans on Instagram, Katie wrote: ‘Just finished my appointment with my consultant and surgeon about my feet.

‘After further scans, the news is absolutely devastating. I’m gutted.’

The source added: ‘Doctors are saying she won’t be able to walk for six months, or put any weight on her feet. She needs major surgery on her feet ASAP as it’s worse than anyone realised.’ 

A source confirmed to MailOnline: ‘On her return to the UK and having been re examined by the Fortius Clinic and under the care of Freddie Murray, her rehabilitation coach, Katie’s full recovery is anticipated to run over 18 months.’

Katie recently explained she broke her ankles and feet during a ‘silly accident’ while on holiday with her beau Carl Woods, 31, and her kids 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 in 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 in pain. They said I won’t be able to walk for three to six months.’ 

Katie was rushed to A&E in Turkey last week for emergency surgery after doctors realised the extent of her horrific injuries.

The TV personality had to spend a night in hospital after fracturing both ankles after she jumped off a wall at the holiday theme park, Land Of Legends.

According to doctors, she will need pins in her feet which will undoubtedly be another agonising experience.

Katie thought she might have to cut her holiday short to head home with her Love Island beau, Carl.

However, she decided to endure the pain and ride it out in Turkey for the sake of her children so that they could enjoy the rest of their holiday.  

Carl has been by Katie’s side throughout the ordeal, and as they arrived back home on Wednesday it’s been revealed the smitten pair are planning to move in together.

A source told The Sun: ‘She was talking about moving in with Carl before the holiday to Turkey, and being together 24/7 has only encouraged her to officially move in together.

‘They’re house-hunting together in Essex this week and can’t wait to live together. They’re extremely loved up and her kids have given him the thumbs up. She’s over the moon.’

A representative for Katie confirmed the plans, explaining: ‘As Katie is 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 a lot to consider: Katie’s rehabilitation, the children, school, respective family, work commitments.

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

Earlier this week Katie slammed trolls who accused her of faking her injury – as her daughter Princess claimed her mother won’t walk properly for a year.

Taking to an Instagram video, the mother and daughter addressed those who have accused them of lying – after one troll claimed Katie was in fact abroad having bunion surgery.

‘By the way, someone said on my Instagram, ”Oh she has had bunions done on both feet!”

‘Well, when I have the X-rays and show you, I haven’t had bunions, I have never had bunions in my life!’ Katie insisted.

Princess then chimed in, saying: ‘She’ll be in a wheelchair for three to six months – but she won’t walk for a year!’ 

Attempting to explain the condition – which sees a painful bump appear where the toe and foot connect – Katie seemed unsure herself, saying: ‘Like, you know, the side where you get like… that is one thing perfect about me, my feet! But obviously they are not perfect now!

‘At least I am learning to use the wheelchair better now!’ 

Katie and the family travelled to Turkey for a relaxing getaway last week but things quickly turned to disaster whens he broke both her ankles.

The reality star shared a clip of her trip to hospital on Monday as she writhed in agony and she cried out ‘it f***ing hurts’ and ‘someone help me’ as medics tended to her injured feet. 

Katie posted a video online from her stint in hospital as she got her feet bandaged up by medical staff and she cried out from the horrendous pain. 

As the doctor attempted to reposition her broken leg, the former glamour model yelled out ‘help, ouch, It’s hurting me,’ and pleaded with staff to operate on her.
