Katie Price reveals terminally ill mum Amy is struggling to breathe after moving to Spain to battle lung disease

KATIE Price has revealed her terminally ill mum Amy is struggling to breathe after she moved to Spain to help her lung condition.

The 42-year-old shares the devastating news in her latest YouTube video – filmed before lockdown – as she sits by her mum’s side.

The mum-of-five explains: “She’s getting a bit worse with her breathing so it’s better for her to be out here than it is in England.

“At Christmas I was watching you, we all were, and you were sitting there like this [takes deep breaths].”

Katie’s daughter Princess gives her nan a hug, before Amy says: “I probably don’t notice it because I do it all the time.”

And the reality star then tells how her mum’s condition fluctuates.

She says: “My dad’s been over and said ‘your mum’s not good. She’s having really good days, but then she’s having really bad days.'”

Amy was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017.

The illness causes scarring to the lungs which reduces the sufferer’s ability to breathe and there is currently no cure.

Amy spoke openly about her diagnosis on Loose Women at the time, and said she could only have two or three years to live.

And earlier this year, Katie has admitted just how difficult it is to see her mum struggle as they isolate separately due to lockdown restrictions.

She told new! magazine: “She’s struggling. She’s slowed down so much with her breathing and it’s not nice to see.

“It’s really sad, but it’s life and we’ve just got to enjoy what’s left. But it’s hard at the moment because I can only see her through the window.

“She’s currently turning her home into a garden centre.

“Most people bored at home are growing their own vegetables and sorting out their garden.”

Katie previously revealed how her mum “would literally die” if she got coronavirus as she battles the terminal lung condition.

Katie has even offered to donate one of her lungs to help prolong her mum’s life, however, Amy turned it down as she didn’t want to put her daughter at risk.

Amy previously told The Sunday Mirror: “I said no, you’re not going to do that. You’ve got to think if, by any chance, it went wrong, who’s going to look after your kids?

“You’ve got to think about your children, not me, and what’s going to happen to them.

“Of course, I was so touched at her offer. But Kate is my child, not the other way around. I have to protect her. So there will be no lung transplant from Kate. I can’t allow it”.
