“Best of luck for tomorrow. We are all stronger than we think,” wrote one follower.
Another added: “Stay strong, it will all go well.”
“There are a lot of people thinking about you. Love and positivity,” added a third.
Katie’s latest operation follows on from years of procedures that the star has undergone following the acid attack in 2008.
At the time, Katie was left her with burns to her face and blindness in one eye following the acid attack arranged by an ex-partner.
Over 12 years since the attack, Katie has maintained that her “heart never sinks” when she was told that she would need even more operations.
Speaking to The Mirror in November, Katie explained: “You can look at it that way, or you can say, it’s extraordinary to be alive, because women who are acid attacked in other countries actually die,” she says.
“They don’t have the NHS, and they don’t have the sophisticated medicine we have here. So I think, my heart would never sink, life is a gift that I’m still here.”
