Exclusive: Katie Price 'I'm taking a break from Loose Women - it's been torture!'

Katie Price has announced she's taking a break from the show.

She recently published a new autobiography which has opened up the heartache of her husband Kieran's affairs a few years ago.

'The most traumatic thing was me and Kieran. We had therapy and I thought I was OK,' she said.

'The past two weeks I've been on my book tour and it's opened up some wounds,' Katie revealed. 'It's been awful. I thought I'd dealt with it. I was numb when it all happened. I'm quite good at putting up a defence. But it's been torture.'

'I haven't got any tears to cry. My heart is shattered, it's broken. We've come two and a half years and Kiran is having to re-live it.''We are going to see a therapist to reassure us we're fine,' she adds.

'It's a relief to me to admit I'm not as strong as people think. Enough is enough. I have to let my barriers down.'

'I'm going away with Kieran on a belated honeymoon and to spend time with the kids. I want to help Kieran through this as well. It's been tough on us both. It's been turbulent.'

Katie was supported by Kaye, Nadia and Linda as she made the announcement.

After appearing on the show many times over the years, Katie became a Loose Woman in January 2016 saying, 'Love rats watch out! Badly-behaved celebs beware, because it’s all about opinion and I won’t be holding back!'
