Katie Prices terminally ill mum Amy issues devastating health update after lung transplant

Katie Price's mother Amy has shared a devastating health update after undergoing a crucial lung transplant in 2022, revealing the weather now impacts her breathing.

Amy, 71, who is mum to Katie, 45, Sophie, 33, and Daniel, 48, was diagnosed with terminal lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017, and was sadly given three to five years to live.

As she marks one year since her lung transplant, Amy has now opened up about her health revealing her days are now full of "ups and downs" but she's "not too bad".

"I'm not too bad. I'm a bit up and down because the weather has an impact on my breathing, it literally takes my breath away so when I go out at the moment I'm wearing a face mask because it's easier for me to breathe with that then just trying to go along," she told the Daily Star and other press.

Amy went on to say that it's a "slow process" and she's had a "few setbacks" but things are slowly heading in the right direction as she adjusts to life after her transplant.

"It's a slow process and it's taken a while. I've had quite a few setbacks but that's to be expected but I'm in the right direction. I can't workout outside so I'm going on my bike in my gym and doing a spin classes. It's not mega fast, it's slow but I get up and down on it and I do a 30 minute workout and then I do some arms," Amy said.

She added: "The trouble is when you have a lung transplant it's so easy to sit because you still get a bit breathless but if I don't exercise, I won't move forward. I had a single lung transplant but it would cease up so I've got to exercise to get it working."

Amy has been open about her health struggles following her diagnosis in 2017, and previously told how her illness and being faced with death encourages her to write her autobiography, The Last Word, which was released earlier this year.

In the book, the 71-year-old discusses everything from mum-of-five Katie being admitted to rehab to her many surgical procedures, as she vowed to set the record straight on any untruths about the former glamour model.

Amy also shared her true feelings on her daughter’s exes, saying they are all "clones of each other" and she no longer discusses men with Katie as it's "so boring".

“When it comes to men, she’s made some very bad choices,” she said. “In fact, we’re now at the stage where we don’t talk about the men in her life. To us, it’s so boring.”

When asked why she doesn't think Katie has found The One yet, Amy said: “They’re all clones of each other. We, as a family, say to her, ‘When are you going to stop going for good looking, young, pretty boys and go for a proper man instead?’ In some ways she’s better off being single and maybe having someone to take her out every now and then.”

Katie has been engaged eight times and married three times in her life so far. She is mum to son Harvey, 21, with ex Dwight Yorke as well as Princess, 15, and Junior, 17, with Peter Andre, and Jett, 10, and Bunny, nine with Kieran Hayler.
