TV presenter and glamour model Katie Price has revealed she’s helping her terminally ill mum plan her funeral.
Katie, 39, flew into Dublin over the weekend to appear on RTÉ’s The Ray D’Arcy Show, where she discussed her dying mums condition.
Speaking to host Ray, Price said she’s the only one of her siblings acknowledging the fact that her mum Amy is dying.
“I’m very matter of fact with my brothers and sisters and I’m like: ‘You do know mum, she is going to die?’ and they’re like: ‘No, she’ll be alright’. I’m like: ‘But she isn’t.’,” the Loose Women star said.
She added: “Nobody wants to accept it but I am very matter of fact. I say to my mum: ‘Come on, like, I know it sounds awful but even your funeral; what would you want for it?’
“Let’s get the best funeral ever! Because if you can plan your own funeral and stuff, it’s just easier for other people. I try to be light hearted on it. Of course I love my mum to bits.”
Back in December Katie had to be taken off the Loose Women panel by fellow host Ruth Langsford, after she broke down while discussing her mum.
Katie’s mum Amy has IPF – a condition that causes scaring of the lungs, which makes it difficult for the sufferer to breathe. Sadly there is no cure yet for IPF.
