Loose Women’s Katie Price was forced to leave a live broadcast after talking about her ill mum.

In the wake of Keith Chegwin’s death, Katie went on the show to talk about the same illness that’s affecting her mum and the devastation it has caused.

Speaking on the live lunchtime edition, the presenter and former model spoke about the cough her mum had that led to a diagnosis of the terminal lung condition.

It was a pretty sombre discussion, but a much needed one after the passing of Chegwin this week.

‘My mum had a cough for about five years. They thought it was asthma. A few months ago she had a cold.

Then she went privately to see…how can my mum die? Right in the run up to Christmas. She’s so healthy.

How can my mum die?’ she asked, while visibly distressed. She expressed the strain it’s caused for her family, and is unsure what the future holds.

‘She won’t see Harvey’s 18th birthday, all the kids. How can my mum die? I love her so much. I can’t do this,’ she shared, before insisting she left the stage for some privacy.

Speaking about the relationship she and her mother had with the late TV star Chegwin, Katie said: ‘Keith got in touch and we’ve been speaking to him lots and he was speaking to my mum.

The thing is my mum is going to die and I just don’t want her to die.’
