Katie's update comes after she urged her fans to follow some sound medical advice amid her own ill health.

Lying back in a pair of pink checked pyjamas, Katie sounded hoarse as she addressed her fans in a clip on Instagram.

She said: "I have a cold. I got sick. I had a sore throat this weekend and now I'm kind of congested. I'm taking Zicam and Mucinex – bad name but it's a pretty good drug.

"I cancelled my audiobook thing because I didn't want to sound like I smoke two packs a day. Anyway, be smart out there and keep washing your hands. I'm going to read and maybe just fall asleep."
