Due to her vulnerability Harvey and Katie always sit outside when they visit her and chat as she perches in the conservatory. 

At one point Katie asks her son what his grandma would think about his swearing and he replies: ‘Sorry nanny. Just f***ing open it you plonker’ as Katie opened a parcel.

Katie then says: ‘Harv, you musn’t swear!’ and he jokes: ‘Sorry about that you d***head’.

Katie wrote in the Instagram caption: ‘HARVEY VISITS NANNY❤️  ‘ as many took to the comments to react to the interaction.

She said she was ‘heartbroken’ to see her mum’s condition deteriorate after she was seen needing oxygen to help her breathe during a Facetime call.

But despite her declining health, Amy has vowed she ‘hasn’t given up yet’ in her battle with the lung condition, which causes the build-up of scar tissue in the lungs. 

In her latest film for the Channel 4 series Steph’s Packed Lunch, Katie investigates how those suffering from incurable diseases can still embrace life to the fullest.

What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis? 

  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition that causes the build-up of scar tissue in the lungs
  • It can lead to shortness of breath and eventual respiratory failure, and has been branded the ‘silent killer.’
  • The condition’s early symptoms are often missed or confused with a common cold or flu
  • IPF currently has no cure

The star was herself unable to visit Amy for many months as she’d been shielding during the Covid pandemic. 

Discussing her mum, Katie says: ‘My mum is my absolute rock, my absolute best friend and to be told she’s got an incurable breathing disease breaks my heart. Sadly, she hasn’t got long left to live.’ 

The film then showed the star on a video call with her mum Amy, who needed help from an oxygen supply as her health continues to deteriorate.

She tells her daughter: ‘I haven’t given up yet. I’ve got to accept the fact that I know I’m going to deteriorate,’ before starting to cough.

Katie urged her mum: ‘Turn your oxygen up’ but her mum insists: ‘I’ll be all right in a minute.’

The mother-of-five then added: ‘It’s because you don’t want to turn it up. That’s why – you don’t want to rely on it.’ 

Reflecting on her mum’s health battles, Katie said: ‘What I’ve learned from today is to spend as much time as I can with my mum. 

‘You’ve just got to take each day as it is, build as many memories, don’t have regrets and just be happy.’
