Katie Price has hit out at Loose Women for allowing her to act like a "performing seal" during the worst time in her life.

The mum-of-five, who was defended by her fans after trolls criticised her 'gum shield' teeth, was a full time panellist on the daytime show for two years until 2018, but doesn't look at her time on the program with good memories.

While speaking on the podcast Changes With Annie Macmanus, the 42 year old said: "I was doing Loose Women for two years. When I look back at that it makes me feel sick.

"Because those two years were bad. Bad, bad, mentally. Bad bad bad. But I still went out there and put on a brave face.

"I look at it and think, 'Oh my god'. I look at my eyes on it and think I look dead in my eyes. Because all the drama came out."

Katie dealt with a number of personal problems while appearing on the show, including finding out her mum Amy is terminally ill with a lung disease and son Harvey facing his own health problems.

As she reminisced on her time on the ITV program, the television personality said bosses had her on the show when she was at her worst mentally.

She continued: "I feel like saying to them, 'You had me on your show when I was at my illest. But now I am fresh and you wouldn't offer me that back again.

"I am not saying they wouldn't but they wouldn't at the minute. And I feel like saying, 'This is me now'. You'll get the best out of me now.

"You had me at my worst. You had me when mentally i was really going through it. Which is weird because some people wouldn't have you on the show like, 'No you are not well enough', Katie explained.

"In fact I wasn't well. I wasn't well but I was still able to perform like a seal."

The reality star, who recently addressed pregnancy rumours, went on to share that she didn't tell anyone how she was feeling at the time, but had secretly hoped somebody on the team would ask her how she was doing.

"I was afraid to (tell anyone). I would brush it off. I am fine… look this happened again and this has happened.

"Every time we had our morning meetings, I would always come in with another drama. They were like, 'Oh my god Kate, it's just exhausting.'

"And I would sit there thinking, 'I know'. Can't one of you just say 'Kate are you alright?'"
