It comes after the mother-of-five posted a statement to Instagram Stories on Thursday, which read: ‘Katie is taking some time out of the media spotlight.
‘Her family and Dr’s have told Katie that she must rest in order to heal. Katie wants to thank everyone for their ongoing support and will be back when she feels ready.’
Katie’s representative told MailOnline: ‘Katie is taking a much needed break. Katie has found the past few weeks terribly draining, both mentally and physically challenging and in order to bounce back is convalescing.’

Earlier in the week, she bemoaned the challenges of being in a cast after breaking both her feet, as she attempted to have a bath on Monday.
Katie took to Instagram Stories to share a glimpse of the tiring attempts to get washed off, warning fans she couldn’t get her casts wet.
Ahead of her statement, Katie had returned to social media on Monday after being rushed to hospital with a suspected infection over the weekend, following surgery on her broken feet earlier this month.

On her Instagram Stories, Katie revealed she first had to try and get from her wheelchair into the bath with her feet in the air.
She wrote: ‘Got to use my upper body strength to get in the bath legs up run the water and CANNOT get my cast wet.. such a mission to have a bath.’
It seemed that Katie’s attempts to get clean were far from smooth sailing, as after making it into the bath she still had to keep her legs elevated and her casts dry.

In a different video, Katie, clad in a pastel pink crop-top and shorts, displayed her colourful casts as she lay on the sofa at home.

Katie was joined by her protection dog Blade who licked her face as she recuperated.

In a sweet gesture, Katie was presented with a drink of Ribena by her son Harvey, 18, with Katie exclaiming ‘I love you Harvey!’ as he gave her the drink.
This comes amid claims Katie has been warned by doctors that she must keep her legs elevated in order to aid her recovery, after she was rushed to A&E at Epsom hospital in Surrey.
The star was said to have been in ‘excruciating agony’ earlier on Saturday when she’d visited the hospital, according to The Sun.

A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘Katie has been sent home and told in no uncertain terms that she must keep her legs up or they won’t heal properly.’
The insider went on to say: ‘She’s just going to have to lie down and give herself time to heal.’
MailOnline contacted Katie’s representatives for comment at the time.
Return: Ahead of her statement, Katie had returned to social media on Monday after being rushed to hospital with a suspected infection over the weekend, following surgery on her broken feet last week
It was reported earlier in the day that she was suspected to have an infection and required further treatment at Chelsea and Westminster hospital, just a week after undergoing major surgery.
The star broke both her feet during a freak accident while on a family holiday in Turkey earlier this month.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Katie was in excruciating agony all night, couldn’t eat, couldn’t focus and nothing was working. Painkillers weren’t touching it so pals rushed her to A&E in Epsom.
Sweet: In a sweet gesture, Katie was presented with a drink of Ribena by her son Harvey, 18, with Katie exclaiming ‘I love you Harvey!’ as he gave her the drink during one update
‘Doctors decided to move her to the Chelsea and Westminster hospital for further treatment but the fear is she could have an infection.’
A representative for Katie Price told MailOnline: ‘She had a terrible night. I can confirm Katie was taken to her local A&E hospital ( Epsom ) and then referred back to the Chelsea and Westminster.’
It comes after Katie was left devastated after a surgeon confirmed the extent of her ‘smashed’ feet and stated she ‘couldn’t have done a worse job’ of injuring herself.

Taking to her YouTube channel earlier this month, Katie explained: ‘The surgeon made it clear that I couldn’t have done a worse job to myself.
‘They’re smashed, broken and it’s bad, really bad. It’s bad, life changing injuries what I’ve done, so they’re just going to do their best.’
She shared her doctor’s recent diagnosis before entering surgery on August 14 2020, as they confirmed her injuries are ‘life-changing’ and will leave her with horrendous scars.
Stay strong: According to the reality star, she is convinced she will make a full recovery and doesn’t care about scarring on her feet as long as she is able to walk again
Katie discussed her shock at hearing the news while wearing a medical robe and resting on her hospital bed, as she prepared for her next operation at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital.
The reality star recorded herself eight hours later following the operation, and she seemed in brighter spirits as the anaesthetic slowly wore off.
She revealed that a member of staff told her, when they opened her legs up in surgery, they were more ‘smashed and mangled’ than they appeared on the x-ray and the op was much harder than anticipated.
Katie experienced the horrendous accident after she jumped off a wall at the Land of Legends theme park in Turkey and broke both her ankles and feet.
Family: Katie is mother to daughters Princess, 13, Bunny, six, and sons Jett, seven, Junior, 15 and Harvey, 18
