Katie recently underwent successful eye surgery to prevent her eyesight from deteriorating, but was mistakenly told she had ‘gone too far’ by Twitter users, who assumed she went under the knife for cosmetic reasons. 

Over the top of the screenshot of the message, Katie penned: ‘I’ve posted this message from my inbox to show you all the work and conversations around diversity and inclusion, the everyday reality for anyone who is in the minority category…

Calling for change, she went on: ‘The everyday existence is very different to the positivity campaigns. More work needs to be done.’ 

In a now-expired video viewed by MailOnline, Katie read an affirmation to her Instagram followers as she admitted that the online comments hurt her feelings, but said she tries not to let them impact her life.

She captioned the video: ‘It happens. It doesn’t have to stop you. Pain helps you change and become more able’.   

Katie also shared some pictures from her hospital bed last week after her surgery, and while her eye looked sore, she had a big smile on her face. 

The mother-of-two’s latest operation came as a result of a long list of complications she suffered following a sulphuric acid attack.

As a result, Katie is blind in one eye, but she had to have her healthy eye operated on to retain her sight. 

A spokesperson for the TV star said that Katie’s doing well given the circumstances. 

They told MailOnline last week: ‘Katie is nearing her 400th operation now but she is being as brave as ever whilst in hospital for her current procedure. 

‘The eye is healing well, and Katie remains positive about the future and cannot thank the incredible eye surgeon and team enough for their work for their ongoing restoration and preservation of her sight in her “good eye.”’

The sulfuric acid attack took place back in 2008 and was organised by her obsessive ex-partner, Daniel Lynch, but was carried out by Stefan Sylvestre, 31.

Daniel co-ordinated the pre-planned street assault outside her north London home in Golders Green. 

Daniel was subsequently given two life terms behind bars, while Stefan served six-years of his own sentence, before initially being released in 2018.

After being re-admitted to prison in November 2019 following a string of car thefts, a parole board panel ruled that he can go free again.  

He was subsequently cleared for release in June this year.
