KATIE Price has wished old pal Simon Cowell a “speedy recovery” and admitted “I know what he’s going through” after their shock accidents.
Simon broke his back in a horror cycling accident last month whilst Katie vaulted off a wall, shattering both her feet in July.
Katie, 41, exclusively told HOAR Online: “I know what he’s going through. We are both workaholics, so to be on our backs sucks.”
“I know what he’s going through.”
Simon smashed three vertebrae when he was thrown from the super-powered electric bike and is recuperating at home in Malibu with partner Lauren Silverman, 43.
Simon, worth an estimated £400million, had hoped to return to work imminently by recording segments to appear in the BGT semi-final but has decided to delay his public comeback.
A source added: “Katie and Simon have been mates for years, they’re long-time showbiz pals. Nothing slows those two down so it’s been frustrating to be laid-up with injuries.
“But they’re both still plotting and planning world domination from their convalescence.”
Katie, 42, was at a theme park with new boyfriend Carl Woods, 31, and her children Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, when her accident happened. She had had a few drinks and was larking around.
HOAR exclusively revealed she is now in The Priory because of the trauma after fearing she would never walk again.
She told HOAR: “The doctors said I’m lucky I’m not dead.
“I could have hit my head and I could have been paralysed, I am actually lucky I landed on my feet.
“It was horrific pain. It felt like a nail gun hitting me continuously, like non-stop electric shocks.
“I thought, ‘I’m never going to walk again’. The doctors said they’ve cut off legs before after seeing injuries like mine.
“My feet are destroyed yet some people think I’m faking it!”
