Katie Price pulls out of Loose Women due to food poisoning
Katie Price pulled out of her panellist appearance on 'Loose Women' today (11.03.16) due to a "medical emergency."
The 37-year-old beauty sent the lunchtime show into a frenzy this morning after she dropped out of her gig at the last minute when she was struck down with food poisoning.
Head panellist Andrea McLean broke the news to fans, saying: "You may have noticed there's an empty chair, there's only three of us on the panel today.
"Katie Price was supposed to be on the show today but she's had a bit of a medical emergency this morning.
"She did come in - I have to say that woman is a trooper - she came into the morning meeting but she's not very well."
A pre-recorded clip then jumped to Katie, who was wrapped up under a duvet with sunglasses on, as she said: "I haven't been sick for about an hour now but I still feel sick and obviously both ends - it's not nice."
The camera then jumped back to the panellists as they revealed they'd pulled in Katie's good friend Michelle Heaton - who was scheduled to be a guest on the show today - as the blonde beauty's last-minute replacement.
Andrea explained: "Katie's gone back to bed, so we needed someone to come in and who better than one of her good friends, who was actually due to be a guest on the show today anyway, so standing in for Katie Price and saving the day for 'Loose Women' is Michelle Heaton."
Keen to lighten the mood, Michelle joked she'd actually fed Katie sushi to sabotage her presenting gig.
