Katie Price walks for the first time in 5 months and says 'it's painful but I'm determined' after miraculous recovery

KATIE Price has been pictured walking for the first time since she broke both of her feet earlier this year; revealing that she has shocked doctors with her miraculous recovery.

The 42-year-old star told The Sun that she is still in a lot of pain, but is "determined" after being warned she still has a "long way to go".

She shared: "I've got the all clear to walk, I still wear my boots and I can wear trainers – I'm having physiotherapy now three times a week and it feels amazing to have that freedom back."

Katie continued: "It's still a long way to go but at least I am back on my feet."

In our exclusive pictures from Katie's final scan last week, several screws and plates can be seen in each of her feet – and the star told us that she had no idea how many had been put in during surgery until she saw these images.

She explained: "I had my final scan on Thursday, I'm fully healed!

"The only reason it hurts is because I've got metal plates and 16 screws in both feet, eight in each.

"All the ligaments need to get stronger but it's amazing to be on my feet and they are fully healed.

"I was shocked as that's the first time I've ever seen my feet from underneath and I didn't realise I had that many screws in them."

Hitting back after being targeted by cruel trolls, Katie added: "Anyone saying I was lying about having major surgery, you can see for yourself.

"I've had major surgery but I'm like Wonder Woman healing so quickly, it's just not known."

The former glamour model was initially told that she wouldn't be able to walk for 18 months following her horror accident in July while on holiday in Turkey.

And medical professionals are stunned by how quickly she has recovered, with Katie telling The Sun: "They said it would be 18 months before I could walk, doctors can't believe how well I've healed.

"They said it's really unique how it's all happened, and that I heal so well."

She playfully added: "It's only been five months and this is something that should have taken 18 months, so basically I'm Super Woman."

In new photos, Katie looks thrilled as she catches her balance while wearing a pair of white trainers.

Looking down at her feet in disbelief, the star is smiling having spent the last five months in support boots and wheelchairs.

She can be seen posing for selfies before testing her healing feet as she goes for a tentative stroll.

Last month, Katie shared graphic photos of her broken feet to silence the trolls who accused her of faking the seriousness of her accident.

She also thanked the "incredible" surgeons who ensured that she will walk again, adding that doctors had told her high heels would be best for her recovery.

Katie previouslytold The Sun that she feared she'd die, lose both her legs, or never walk again after the horror fall in Turkey.

Explaining how the accident happened, she shared: "We were just all mucking about. It was just a small wall which had flowers on top and I thought it was the same height the other side — but it was a 25ft drop.

"I landed on my feet and it was like cement. I tried to get up and I couldn’t. Then this pain just hit my legs and I’m screaming, ‘My legs! My legs!’"

The damage was so severe that it took an eight-hour op to fuse the bones in her feet back together.

Katie also admitted that she finds being pushed around in a wheelchair "humiliating", with boyfriend Carl Woods acting as a dedicated carer to the star.

Katie was on holiday with Carl when the accident happened, as well as he two children with ex-husband Peter Andre, 15-year-old Junior and 13-year-old Princess.

Katie is also mum to 18-year-old Harvey, seven-year-old Jett, and six-year-old Bunny.
