Katie also made refrence to the backlash arising from her fame for her sister and mother, Amy.

Meanwhile, Sophie continued: “She’s getting on alright, she’s on the transplant list now as well.”
Katie said: “Yeah, so she can only be four hours away now, wherever she is. So we hope she’ll get a lung transplant.”
In 2017, Amy was told she may have three to four years left to live after being diagnosed with IPF.
Earlier this year, Katie said her mum wasn’t giving in without a fight as she opened up about her condition.
In a joint interview with The Sunday Times in April, Katie said of her mum: “She puts on a massive show of strength but her illness is slowing her down.
“Because we know we’re losing Mum, nothing goes unsaid. I know everything about her and she knows everything about me.
“I miss holding her and giving her a cuddle.”
Katie also previously said she offered to donate one of her lungs to her mum.
Speaking on the Life, Interrupted with Simon Thomas podcast, the star said: “She is waiting to see If she can have a lung transplant, I even offered my lung to her but it is not that easy.
“Even if she was to have it now, there’s nothing to say she will survive it as it can reject in three weeks, it only prolongs your life by 5 years.”
