A very poorly Katie Piper has reached out to thank her supporters after she was left hospitalised following complications from a throat operation.
The TV presenter took to Twitter yesterday, dubbing the hospital “the best place for her” at the moment after she was forced to miss her daughter Belle’s first birthday party due to her illness.
Katie’s oesophagus was torn earlier this month when she was undergoing surgery to have scar tissue removed after a 2008 acid attack, with the tear causing her extreme pain, vomiting, and resulted in her losing a stone in just two weeks.
The star shared: “I went in for a routine operation to remove scar tissue from my attack but there were complications.
“I was discharged but started to deteriorate.
“It’s been very painful and I’ve lost a stone in fifteen days so I had to come in and be monitored.
“A stone is a lot and I look like a skeleton but hope to be back home and back to normal ASAP – all fun and games.”
Taking to Twitter, the mum-of-one thanked her fans for their ongoing support, writing: “Thanks for all your kind messages, I am back in hospital unfortunately, but getting good treatment so probably the best place to be right now.

“Just want to try and find a way forward to get back to normal health.”
Katie has already had to pull out of work commitments and missed her daughter’s first birthday party earlier this month, but is remaining positive.
Get well soon, Katie – we hope that you start to feel better soon!
