Katie Price has been through a bit of a tough time the last few weeks. Whatever you think about the woman, to find out your husband has cheated on you AGAIN, lose your unborn child through a miscarriage, and THEN find out that your mum has a terminal illness has to be rough for anyone.

My mum is my favourite person, and I actually wouldn't be able to function without her - so I completely get why Katie has been showing the love lately to hers on Instagram.


Fans have rushed to support the star after she appeared on Loose Women with her mum, Amy, to discuss her illness. Amy has been diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which she described on the show as: "A scarring of the lungs and it actually stops you breathing. It's progressive so it goes up your lungs and in the end you won't be able to breath."

Katie could be seen bravely helping her mum explain the condition, with a specialist in the audience to give further advice about what is expected in the next three years as the condition worsens. Amy then told the women how she planned to spend the time she had left with her family...

Since the taping, Katie has been extremely supportive to her mum, and her followers have added their wishes and support through this difficult time.

One fan said: "As long as she knows how much you love her, and I am sure she does. In your. heart she will always have a special place."

Another replied: "I'm so sorry to hear about your mum and everything you are going through. Just remember you have five beautiful children and so many supporters out here rooting for you . U are a strong amazing woman and can get through this toughest time of your life.[sic]"

I don't know about you, but I'm going to be giving my mum a long phone call tonight to remind her how much I love her.
