Katie Price is set to visit her mother, Amy, for the first time in over 10 weeks as the pair were forced to spend time apart due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Amy, who has the terminal lung condition idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, is classed as being among the most vulnerable and had to isolate from the very start of the pandemic.
However, with the latest government guidelines easing lockdown and allowing those that have been shielding to leave the house for the first time, the pair are set to be reunited.
A source told the Daily Mail: ‘It was wonderful news to receive – however bittersweet as Katie cannot yet give her mother a cuddle.
‘Amy has been in isolation for more than ten weeks, she was one of the first into the shielding program.
‘Being such a close knit family it has been odd not being able to be physically greet one another.
‘Katie is, as many others in their situation, still very cautious – it is the new normal and how life is going to be for some time to come.
‘Katie will be the first over to her mum’s when cuddle-gate is over!’
Another source told The Sun: ‘Amy is still shielding and being very very careful.
‘Katie will go around for an isolation cup to tea in the garden today, but obviously she can’t hug her or go near her.’
The former glamour model, 42, was seen speaking to her mother through a window outside her home after leaving rehab just as the pandemic set in.
She said on her My Crazy Life special: ‘I can’t even hug her, it’s so, so sad,’ adding, ‘I’ve come out the hospital, realising everyone has gone and isolated themselves!’
Katie had checked herself in to rehab after a difficult year saw her turn to drink and drugs after being declared bankrupt, being banned from driving and having renovations on her home go wrong leaving her house unliveable.
Here’s hoping it won’t be long until Katie and Amy can share a hug – but even a socially-distanced wall or a picnic will be nice for now.
