An insider said to The Sun: ‘Katie has had a really hard few weeks, injuring her feet was bad enough.’
She announced that she is taking some time out to heal from her injuries following her recent operation and a string of doctors appointments.
‘But then she got the diagnosis and had to go through the operation. Recovering has been really hard and she knows it is going to be a long road.
‘This weekend has been a step back in the right direction. Surrounding herself with her nearest and dearest is exactly what she has needed. They are all rallying round and making sure Katie is OK.’

‘But Katie will be listening as she just wants to recover as fast as she can.’
