KATIE Price can’t stand watching herself back on Loose Women because she’s “dead behind the eyes”.
The 42-year-old appeared as a full time panellist on the daytime TV for two years up until 2018, but says she now “feels sick” watching herself on the show.
“I was doing Loose Women for two years,” she said on Annie Mac’s Changes podcast.
“When I look back at that it makes me feel sick.
“Those two years were when I was bad mentally, but I still went out there and put on a brave face. I look dead in my eyes. Because all the drama came out.”
Katie added: “They’d be like: ‘Oh my God, Kate, it’s exhausting.’
“I would sit there thinking: ‘I know, can’t one of you just say: ‘Kate are you alright?’ It’s like I’m trying to say can someone ask if I’m alright.”
Katie admitted putting on a “brave face” while on the ITV panel show and looks back at it now and just thinks “Oh my god”.
During her time on the show Katie was going through numerous issues in her personal life, all of which she happily discussed on air.
She had learnt her beloved mum Amy is terminally ill with a lung disease, disabled son Harvey, 18, had been battling health problems, she found herself in a bitter split from cheating third husband Kieran Hayler and she was struggling with money despite amassing a £45m fortune.
Looking back she believes she wasn’t in a mentally stable place at the time but the ITV show was more than happy to keep having her on.
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 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’. In fact I wasn’t well.

“I wasn’t well but I was still able to perform like a seal.”
Katie admitted that she didn’t tell anyone how she was really feeling during that time, but hoped that someone would ask if she was OK.
She said: “I was afraid to (tell anyone). I would just brush it off. I am fine.. look this has happened again and this has happened.
