Backlash over Katie Price’s ‘essential’ red list holiday

She claims it's an extreme circumstance

While thousands of Brits have had to cancel holidays, weddings, and family reunions abroad for more than a year now, Katie Price has jetted to Turkey – currently on the government’s red list – to undergo surgery. The 42 year old is claiming the surgery is a “work trip” as the procedures are being filmed, apparently for her YouTube channel.

Countries on the red list are currently deemed to have the highest risk of spreading coronavirus and should only be visited in “extreme circumstances”.

Katie and her fiancée Carl were pictured flying out to Turkey last week, and a representative for the reality star explained that the trip was essential due to the fact her liposuction operation will be filmed. The rep said that she needed the operation as she had not been able to exercise properly after breaking both her feet last year, and that the extra two stone she has apparently put on is causing her “physical pain”.

“Despite her efforts to lose weight she has gained over two stone – this in turn has put immense pressure and further strain on her feet and is directly affecting her walking and management of day to day as a mother of five without being in constant pain,” said the rep for Katie – who recently claimed she's set to start IVF to have a sixth baby. “Katie accepts she is in a fortunate position to be able to undergo this procedure and would like to reassure in doing so is part of her 'work', in sharing her journey as she endures further emotional, mental struggles and challenges.”

Katie, Carl, and her camera crew will have to quarantine for 10 days at an airport hotel on their return to the UK at the cost of £1750 per person.

Fans were quick to voice their opinion over the trip. One said, “not at all essential”, another wrote, “Disgusting. So many people can't see family in other countries, but this woman just swans off to wherever she wants to go. She should be fined”, and a third said, “Every time the excuse for flouting Covid restrictions is work. Off on another freebie holiday, oops, I meant work trip.”

Katie’s last surgery spree in Turkey in 2019 saw her undergo a Brazilian bum lift, liposuction, a tummy tuck, a facelift, an eye lift, and an eyelid lift. This time around, she's also said to be getting a brow and face lift and new teeth, at a total cost of £12k.
