Katie’s latest medical issue came as a result of a long list of complications she suffered following a sulphuric acid attack back in 2008. 

The mother-of-two is blind in one eye as a result of the attack, carried out by Stefan Sylvestre Lynch on the orders of her obsessive ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch.

She wrote in another Story: ‘After a 10 hour flight, I landed in Atlanta to find out my luggage had been lost/stolen. I stayed in the airport for hours trying to locate it but it was a lost cause.

Filming herself making her way through George Bush Intercontinental Airport, she said while addressing the camera: ‘Okay, I’ve just lauded in Houston, 14 hours of travel completed.

‘I am absolutely praying the one remaining suitcase I have on this trip is at baggage complaint, baggage claim. Please pray for me and send positive thoughts.’

The author and Loose Women panellist is set to immerse herself in the United States judicial system for the new series.

Already a volunteer in UK prisons, Katie is intrigued to see how different things will be across the pond in some of the most spoken-about prisons. 

She explained: ‘I am thrilled to be working with the W Channel in 2023. I have always had a strong interest in real-life documentary formats and Piper Behind Bars is already proving to be a fascinating project. 

‘As a long-standing volunteer in UK women’s prisons, I’m intrigued by the varying treatment within the US system.

‘I have no idea what to expect when I’m across the Atlantic, but that’s the magic of a documentary. I can’t wait to see how this project unfolds.’

The blonde beauty will be talking with women who are not only negotiating a prison term but who are also parents and coming to terms with what that means for their children’s future. 

While the series will also look into how women in prisons are looked after and treated while pregnant.

The show’s commissioning editor shared: ‘The complexities of women within the criminal justice system is a subject that desperately needs to be explored further and with Katie at the helm we hope to ask a pivotal question about whether anyone should ever have to give birth behind bar’.
