Inside Katie Price’s luxury pandemic vacation as doctor blames her for taking FIFTH overseas trip in a year
While many of us have not left the country throughout the pandemic, Katie Price has managed to travel overseas five times since March 2020.
His latest trip to Turkey’s red list for a series of cosmetic procedures was criticized by Dr Amir Khan live on Good Morning Britain.
Under current guidelines, you should not travel to countries on the red list.
But the 43-year-old star insisted she was “following protocol” safely as the TV doctor criticized her for “not putting the health and lives of all who come before us first. surround “.
Katie appeared on the breakfast show to reveal the results of her brutal operations last month, which she says were an integral part of her job.
The former glamorous model underwent full body liposuction, eye and lip lift, liposuction under the chin and fat injected into her buttocks.
She told GMB hosts Kate Garraway and Alastair Campbell: “I work, I do my YouTube.
“I had two Covid bites, I did all my PCR tests, you have to follow the protocol.
“I knew that by going to a red country I would literally be in the hospital, then we flew to an amber country and stayed in a villa in the middle of the hills away from everyone, then we were returned home.
“We didn’t laugh at all, that’s serious – and it’s hard work to make a country red, and I wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t had two jabs.”
But Amir argued that Katie should have waited until the pandemic was over.
The mother of five replied, “For me, it’s my job. I’m not doing this to be silly, I’m full and I want to feel good on camera.”
While the trip in question was for surgery, Katie – who was declared bankrupt in November 2019 – has also been to Turkey since the start of the pandemic, for vacation.
She also visited Portugal – twice – and the Maldives last year.
And, dear being expensive, she didn’t just choose to stay in old accommodation – she was lucky enough to stay in villas and resorts charging thousands of people just for a week’s stay.
We take a look at his travels.
Left in wheelchair in Turkey
In July of last year, Katie took her children, 15-year-old Junior, 13-year-old Princess, seven-year-old Jett and six-year-old Bunny, and her fiance Carl Woods, to Turkey to stay at the five-star hotel. Akra in Antalya.
Her 18-year-old son Harvey was found to be unfit to travel after being released from hospital after a 10-day stay – including time in intensive care.
A source told us at the time: “Harvey will be staying at home with his caregiver and Katie will always go – she’s taking Princess and Junior and some of their friends and she didn’t want to cancel their vacation and let them down, d ‘especially as The Princess’s birthday party was disrupted by Harvey going to the hospital. “
Turkey wasn’t quite a barrel of laughs, however, as Katie managed to break both feet after jumping off a wall at the theme park, Land of Legends.
Katie was largely left in a wheelchair because of the event and said at the time that she would never be able to walk again.
Despite her injuries, Katie decided to stay on vacation in Turkey, claiming she put her children first.
Katie’s rep said The mirror: “Katie promised the kids this vacation, and Princess needs it after going through a rough patch lately.
“She always puts children first, and although she is very uncomfortable, she doesn’t want to let the children down by making them go home earlier.”
Resort in the Maldives at £ 1400 per week
Three months later, just before the second lockdown, Katie and Carl were sunbathing in the Maldives, staying at a £ 1,400-a-week resort.
Katie shared a series of snaps from the glam hotel on her Instagram – telling fans she felt “soothed.”
Below a photo of herself on a boat with Carl, she said: “It’s so amazing to finally be happy and settled.”
She even extended her trip to the Maldives by a week to make sure she had enough content for her YouTube channel, as bad weather made filming difficult.
A representative for Katie added, “Katie has been told by her medical team to have regular hydrotherapy (swimming) as she is not carrying weight which helps her recover both physically and mentally.
“The family circle supports her in this process because she wants to achieve the best result in Katie’s recovery program.”
But while on vacation, an anonymous source informed authorities that she led a glamorous life despite being declared bankrupt in November 2019. As a result, Katie was invited to appear before a judge.
She told the court via a video link: “I understand that I have not been easy to contact.
“I have been in places physically and emotionally.”
She insisted that her vacation was a “work assignment”.
During a chaotic, technically difficult proceeding, she denied claims she had enjoyed a series of luxury vacations – adding that she did not lead a “lavish lifestyle”.
Katie – who lambasted influencers for going to Dubai during the pandemic – claimed that “ninety percent” of her trips were for business.
Two trips to Portugal in two weeks
Portugal was put on the green list in May, and Katie and her fiance Carl Woods wasted no time in booking the first flight out of the UK.
She posted a photo of herself snuggling up to Carl taken on the plane, both wearing face masks.
She captioned the post: “Yes finally @CarlJWoods a gorgeous break.”
During their stay, the newly engaged couple shared holiday photos of their £ 300-a-night five-bedroom Portuguese villa, which has a huge swimming pool, jacuzzi and barbecue.
A source close to the star told us Katie was “over the moon” to fly away – and that she was hoping to get back pregnant with baby number six.
They explained, “Katie is thrilled to be going on vacation with Carl and having him all to herself – she feels stressed out trying to get pregnant again.
“She says it’s a baby-making vacation so she hopes a little relaxing in the sun will be good for them.”
Two weeks after returning from Portugal, she and Carl returned to soak up the sun in a lavish four-bed villa offering “complete privacy”.
After checking into a luxury hotel, the couple made their way to an Airbnb villa, Villa Jasmim, whose rooms currently cost £ 365 a night – although it is not clear who paid for the trip.
Katie posted a photo of herself enjoying a movie night with her boyfriend, writing: “Night movie in Portugal”.
They also showed off their appetizing breakfast – with a selection of fruit, yogurt, pancakes and eggs.
