The TV presenter went on to tell her followers about her “successful” procedure after experiencing lots of “soreness” with her eye.

“I had a really successful operation. So basically I was getting lots of problems with my blind eye, lots of soreness and infection and it was because the eyelid, which was originally a skin graft had contracted, it got really tough and it shrunk. It meant my eye was no longer closing,” she explained.

“So especially at night, when I wake up in the morning, it was really uncomfortable.”

In the next clip, the Strictly Come Dancing star lifted her arm up and discussed: “So I’ve had a procedure to remove some skin from my arm, take off the old lid and remove the scar tissue and skin graft the new eyelid, which is why I’ve got the bandage on.

“And then, I’ve had a scar revision, an old skin graft on my lower lid here.”

She added: “So yeah, all successful. Just got a sore throat.”

It comes after the star revealed she was waiting to undergo surgery yesterday on her Instagram story.

While Katie was dressed in a blue gown and sitting on a hospital bed, she told her followers: “Morning, I’m in hospital because I have to have an operation on my bad eye.
