The former glamour model, 42, posted several pictures of her feet, as well as x-rays showing the metal pins that had been put in her ankles, in order to hit back at those who claimed she hadn’t broken her feet but had got bunion surgery.

According to a recent report, she is expected to ‘get engaged to boyfriend Carl Woods by the end of the year’ after ‘breaking her feet and ankles has made her to take stock of what matters.’
The mother-of-five has reportedly ‘made clear’ to Carl that ‘she wants to build a new life with him and the kids’ as she finalises her divorce from Kieran Hayler.
According to The Sun, Katie told a friend: ‘I’ve got big plans. I want to kick the a*** out of this year and then make next year one to remember.’
A friend told the publication: ‘Marrying Carl is a big part of her plans,’ and the pair are also believed to have business ideas for modelling, fitness and TV, according to the source.

Last month a representative confirmed that Katie was set to sign her divorce papers within days after proceedings had slowed when Katie went to The Priory.
The model married husband number three, former stripper Kieran, in 2013 and the pair share children Jett, seven and daughter Bunny, five. They split in May 2018.
Earlier this week, the TV star had uploaded a snap of her partner alongside a gushing tribute that read: ‘I’ve said yes to everything @carljwoods your actually any girls dream come true and I’ve got you all to myself forever.’
The Brighton native returned to court after someone ‘anonymously tipped the court off’ about her multiple holidays, lavish lifestyle and Instagram advertising.
Since she was declared bankrupt in November last year, the former Page 3 star has enjoyed holidays to Turkey, New York, Spain and Thailand.
Her bankruptcy came after the High Court found she had failed to stick to a plan to repay her debts, estimated to be around £800,000.
The businesswoman is reportedly not due to be discharged from her bankruptcy until next month and is supposed to pay any money she makes to creditors.
This includes both money that she makes through work or any income from selling her belongings.

Katie and Carl jetted out to the Maldives to enjoy some time together and are even thought to be using the time to try for her sixth child.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Katie is excited about her first break away minus the kids with Carl – both agree that the sun, sea and sunshine will be the perfect setting for their family planning adventures.’
The Maldives trip follows Katie and Carl’s earlier jaunt to Turkey over the summer – where the mother-of-five ended up breaking her feet.
Family: Katie previously said her children (pictured), are big fans of Carl – but she said that her children don’t need a new father figure because they already have their dads
